Prochem says Natural to be at Interclean '08

Prochem Europe meets growing demand for cleaning solutions that are friendlier on the environment with the launch of a range of biodegradable cleaning products at this year's ISSA Interclean show in Amsterdam.

The UK company, which markets a wide range of high quality cleaning solutions and technology, is exhibiting in Hall 5 on Stand 115 at the show, held in Amsterdam in The Netherlands.

The new and aptly-named Natural Range constitutes three specific cleaners: E309 Natural Stone Cleaner, a detergent cleaning formula for natural stone flooring, tiles and countertops; E772 Natural Carpet Cleaner, a carpet extraction cleaner with micro-encapsulation formula; and E717 Natural Carpet Pre-spray, a carpet pre-spray & traffic lane cleaner also with micro-encapsulation formula.

All contain natural lemongrass, eucalyptus and tea tree oil fragrance and share safe, gentle balanced pH values. Natural Carpet Cleaner and Pre-Spray are both phosphate-free and VOC compliant. E309 Natural Stone Cleaner contains no harsh acids and has a neutral pH suitable for natural stone such as marble, limestone, granite and travertine.

Other new chemicals products on show from Prochem on show include S745 Procaps, B148 Fabric Pre-Spray, E551 Truck Mount Descaler and TM2401 Scotchgard™ Carpet Protector.

3M’s new Scotchgard™ Carpet Protector Concentrate, TM2401, is now exclusively available from Prochem Europe distributors throughout the UK.

Scotchgard ™ Carpet Protector is an all-new technology product with enhanced performance characteristics. The concentrated product is diluted with 4 parts of water and then sprayed onto new or freshly extraction cleaned carpet to significantly improve the soil and stain repellency of the carpet.

A spray cleaner for interim carpet maintenance with cylindrical brush machines such as the Prochem Fiberdri TM4, Procaps is a soil encapsulating clear liquid formula with tropical lemon fragrance that leaves carpets clean and dry in 20-30 minutes. Low moisture, low residue, Procaps gives enhanced soil resistance and its superior formulation lifts and encapsulates soil, spots and stains.

Safe on wool, wool mix and stain-resistant carpets (subject to testing), it benefits from a rinse-free solution that dries quickly to a dry crystalline finish, which can be vacuumed away.

A useful solution for truck mount technology owners in hard water areas, Prochem's Truck Mount Descaler is a liquid inhibited descaler for removal of hard water deposits from the company’s extensive range of truck mount cleaning machines. A clear, odourless solution, it benefits from a non-corrosive formulation making it easier and safer to handle.

Also new from Prochem, Fabric Pre-Spray is a re-launch of an economical pre-spray with buffered mild alkaline formula that helps release soil from wet cleanable fabric upholstery. A clear liquid with lemon fragrance, it is applied by hand sprayer to heavily soiled areas, which can then be extraction cleaned.

Prochem Europe's renowned truck mounted extractor cleaning technology is represented at the show by its Blazer XL, a compact, simple and affordable unit for cleaners upgrading from a portable electric machine, and the Apex, a larger, dual wand machine for commercial or restoration work, shown here with its popular diesel power unit.

Other elements from Prochem Europe's extensive portable cleaning machinery offer includes the Steempro 2000, offering a high power vacuum and pump system with an internal “whisper quiet” silencer, making it one of the most powerful yet quiet portable extractors in the world.

Also on Stand 115 is a Prochem Galaxy portable extractor, for residential and institutional cleaning of carpets, rugs and upholstery; Polaris state-of-the-art self-contained carpet soil extractors for the institutional and commercial carpet cleaner; the highly compact and portable high performance FiveStar carpet and floor cleaning machine perfectly suited for use in small hotels, guest houses, and nursing homes; and the remarkable Supernova, a self-contained extractor that cleans in a both forward and reverse motion to provide unparalleled productivity, cleaning up to 370 sq m of carpet or flooring in one hour.

The 22nd edition of ISSA/Interclean runs from May 6-9th 2008 is anticipated to attract over 25,000 professionals from 120 countries meeting exhibitors from 31 countries.

"Interclean premises to be another important show for Prochem. We have plenty of scope to develop our European business further and a great range of new solutions and machines to interest existing and new distributors in," says national sales manager Paul Robinson, who will be on hand throughout together with other members of the Prochem Europe team.
