There are numerous advantages of using high-quality cleaning chemicals. When used under the right circumstances, a high- quality cleaning product can reduce your cleaning time significantly. Moreover, the purchase of a premium product often results in savings on the long term, since the reduction of the cleaning time results in lower fuel consumption. With todays wide range of cleaning chemicals, however, it can be a real challenge to choose the right product. With this blog we hope to provide more insight in the characteristics of a high-quality cleaning product, so that you can tell whether the product you are about to purchase belongs to the top range or is of a lesser quality.
High concentration of active ingredients
To check what kind of product you have on hand, sometimes all you must do is simply check the composition of the product. Premium range cleaning chemicals contain a high concentration of active ingredients. Our Grato 50, for example, consist of a high concentration KoH, a complexing agent, non-ionic surfactants, Anionic surfactants and Glycol. Products of a lower quality often only consist of a raw material mixed with water.
Products produced by a professional and reliable manufacturer, are always provided with a batch number and inspection certificate, as shown below. This inspection certificate shows the batch number, the production date, the manufacturing date, the expiration date and is evidence of a precisely executed final inspection. The batch number ensures that a product can always be traced back to the original production series. In case of a complaint the cause can be accurately sorted out and appropriate measures can be taken.
Country of origin
Other important information to find out whether your product is of an A-range, is to check in what country the product is manufactured. A frequently heard complaint by new customers is the quality difference they have experienced when buying from other suppliers at different locations. Sometimes a product bought in China can cause a completely different cleaning result then the same product bought from the same supplier in Europe. This difference in quality is caused by the fact that many suppliers have their products produced locally. Even when the exact same recipe is used for production, the raw materials used in for example Asia can be completely different from the raw material used in Europe. To guarantee a constant product quality, CP Metal Chemicals ships its European-produced cleaning chemicals to stock points at strategic ports all over the world.
Cost in perspective
At last we would like to highlight the importance of looking at the overall picture when purchasing tank cleaning chemicals. When you are considering buying a product, price obviously plays an important role. However, when talking about price, people often only look at a price per litre. It is at least as important to consider what amount of product is required and what the use of this product means for the duration of the total cleaning process. At CP Metal Chemicals & Henkel, we develop products that are of such quality that the total cleaning time can be reduced and yields a saving in fuel consumption. Bottom line, when you are looking for the most economical solution for your tank cleaning challenge, it is important to take the required quantity of the product and its effect on the total cleaning time into account.
