Wessex Propeller Cleaner
This week’s blog is all about our popular Propeller Cleaner.
Our Wessex Propeller Cleaner is one of our top sellers and for good reason! It is a new acid-based formulation which is different from many more traditional, Hydrochloric acid based, propeller cleaners. This new formulation means that it won’t fume or release pungent gases when used and so makes it a much safer and more pleasant product for our customers.
Not only that but it is highly effective at removing calcium deposits and algae and it softens barnacles to make them easier to remove. In fact, many of our customers report that when they use Wessex Propeller Cleaner, and they leave the spray in-situ for 5 – 10 minutes any barnacles can be removed with a light brushing saving on the need for serious elbow grease!
It is safe to use on a wide range of metals, including stainless steel, bronze and aluminium propeller blades, shafts, and casings, leaving them clean, bright and shiny!
In order to get the best from Propeller Cleaner, you need to remove any grease or hydraulic oil from the area to be cleaned. Make sure you are wearing gloves, protective clothing and protective eye wear. Either spray the area or use a brush to spread the product over the surfaces. Leave to soak in for 5 – 10 minutes. You can then wash the product off, if your propeller has heavy barnacle deposits then you may need to use a brush to gently remove them. Once your propeller is washed and dried you may wish to apply a suitable grade polish.
The good news is that our Propeller Cleaner comes in a handy 1 litre spray bottle and a 3.25 Litre refill, reducing both plastic and cost. So better for the environment and your pocket!
