Directions for use

The main applications are for cleaning in the engine room for machinery spaces, bulkheads, tank tops and on deck.

Unitor™ Cleanbreak™ is recommended for local cleaning and degreasing of engine rooms, bilges and tank tops. It can be applied by brush, spray, immersion, soaking, or any other conventional means. Unitor™ Cleanbreak is used neat. Allow a residence time of at least 30--60 minutes where possible to ensure good penetration.

Wash down all surfaces using hot water if possible and high pressure water jet. The emulsion residue after cleaning must be allowed to separate in a holding tank over sufficient time before passing through an oily water separator.

To achieve the best results from the splitting action of Unitor™ Cleanbreak™. It is important that no other type of solvent/emulsifying cleaner is used in the engine room.
