Cleaning Up With Paintcor Products
Preparing your surfaces before painting is an important part of the process that many people forget, or they just don’t have the right tools for the job. That is why we have manufactured a range of Paintcor products specifically to help you with this. And here they are:
Degreasing with Grimreaper
Handrails and galvanised iron surfaces that come into contact with people and the elements on a regular basis naturally need regular maintenance. What many people do not realise is that whenever you touch those handrails you leave behind oils and fats from your skin. Even when your hands are clean (and more so when they’re not).
These fats and oils need to be cleaned off your galvanised surfaces before you repaint them, and that’s where Grimereaper comes to the rescue. As an abrasive degreasing agent, it has been specifically manufactured to help you clean away grease and grime that will have built up over time.
Due to the abrasive medium used in Grimereaper your surfaces will be left grease-free, with a slightly abrasive feel. Another handy feature of Grimereaper is that it can be used to clean your old paint brushes, and it will even remove acrylic paint from clothing.
Beating back algae with Ushevu
If you live in a humid area, you will be familiar with the appearance of algae, fungi and other unpleasant growths. That is when you need Ushevu, a product from Paintcor manufactured specifically to neutralise bacteria and algae contamination. After all, you wouldn’t want to have something growing under your paint coat, right?
Ushevu has proven to be 100% effective at killing bacteria, yeast, fungi and algae. All you need to do is mix one litre Ushevu to 19 litres of water. Apply the mixture to all contaminated areas you want to neutralise, leave for 24 hours, and then scrub the dead contaminants and Ushevu off with some fresh water.
Take Note: Make sure to wear protective gear for your hands and eyes while working with Ushevu.
