Farm Mate is a versatile heavy-duty cleaning agent specifically designed as a farm equipment cleaner.
This cleaning agent is ideal for removing a wide variety of common agricultural contaminants; from cleaning animal waste from walls, floors and equipment to removing built-up herbicide and pesticide residue from spraying equipment etc.
Farm Mate is also suitable for use on masonry, most metals, timber, plastic, rubber and most other common materials found on farms etc.
This highly concentrated biodegradable product was developed to meet the cleaning and degreasing demands of Australian farmers, and their need to maintain farm equipment, machinery and buildings.
In addition to Farm Mate being used in general agricultural environments, it is also widely used by vineyards – see the Testimonial tab for details.
Corrosion Protection and Storage.
To maintain finishes and protect against oxidisation and corrosion the application of a post-cleaning protectant is advisable. This is particularly important when equipment is to be stored for the medium or longer term.
Failure to adequately protect stored equipment can result in increased maintenance costs, faded and corroded finishes, and ultimately a decline in asset resale value.
After using Farm Mate, or any other reputable farm equipment cleaner, you may like to consider using Protecta.
Protecta is a highly durable, weather-resistant, long-lasting anti-corrosion coating. This thin, and almost invisible wax-like film protects metal surfaces from weathering and other sources of corrosion.
Protecta is often used to protect plant and equipment during short to medium-term storage, either in the open-air or undercover.
Protecta wicks readily and can seep into areas often prone to corrosion.
Importantly, Protecta is not oily and does not leave a tacky surface that could attract dust and other debris.
The righthand area of raw steel was treated with one coat of Protecta. The lefthand area was left untreated as a control sample.
Note the water beading on the Protecta treated sections.
