Directions for use

General Cleaning - Deck and Engine Room
Unitor™ Aquatuff™ can be used for different types of cleaning, and it can be applied by brush, hand spray, high- and low pressure washing machines etc. It can be applied on vertical surfaces by adding Unitor™ Foam-Agent™ (Product no. 614537) for increased resident time.
Dependent on degree of contamination typical dosage is about 1-5%.
For safe handling and optimal dilution we recommend the use of the UNITOR™ MIXING STATION 4-14.

Removal of soot from Inert Gas Systems (IGS)

  1. Apply Unitor™ Aquatuff™ with a Unitor™ High Pressure Cleaning Machine and use 1:4 with water. However, if used with a hand sprayer, apply the product neat on the surfaces, allowing 1 litre per 12m2.
  2. Leave for about 30-45 minutes. The surface remains wet.
  3. Wash down with hot water (80°C) and check the results.
  4. Repeat the procedure if necessary.

Cargo hold cleaning
Unitor™ Aquatuff™ can be used for cargo hold cleaning after soot, coal, pet coke and other bulk materials.

Dosing method

  1. Apply Unitor™ Aquatuff™ mixed 10--25% in water, using spray foam equipment.
  2. Leave for 30--45 minutes. The surface remains wet.
  3. Wash down with a high pressure unit. For best results, direct the high pressure jet at the lowest parts of the hold first and work upwards.
  4. Repeat the procedure if necessary.

If Unitor™ Slip-Coat™ (Product no. 652 737015 and 652 737023) is applied to the cargo hold surfaces prior to loading, the concentration of Unitor™ Aquatuff™ in the cleaning solution may be reduced.
