Specialised Acid Wash is a detergent and acid-based heavy-duty equipment cleaner.
This product’s powerful combination of acids and fluorides is effective in the cleaning and brightening of metals and other surfaces.
The inclusion of acid-tolerant detergents creates an acid wash formula suitable for removing petroleum-based greases, dirt and fatty materials.
In addition, hydrogen chloride and ammonium bifluoride mean that Specialised Acid Wash thoroughly and deeply removes mineral salts, rusting, leaching, oxidation and other stains.
As well as natural weathering and exposure to harsh environments, there is also the need to remove contaminants such as freight residue, mining and earthmoving grime. This kind of unsightly staining is common amongst mining and civil contracting fleets as well as freight rail stock. It can lead to fleets and equipment looking aged and poorly maintained.

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 Specialised Acid Wash, or any other reputable heavy-duty 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 painted and 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.
Demonstrating Protecta on Raw Steel.
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.
