Product Name: BLOCKADE
Class: Truck Wash, House Wash
Because of so many extreme ‘hard water’ plateaus in the United States virtually every area of the country can reduce a detergent's cleaning power by as much as 70%. For this reason, you can see why soil removal is such a complex process that is much more involved than just adding soap or surfactant to water.
In the power wash industry especially the major concern everyone has is dealing with cleaning solutions in hard water. Water is made “hard” by the presence of calcium, magnesium, iron and metal ions. These metal ions interfere with the cleaning ability of all detergents. The metal ions themselves act like dirt and “use up” performance generating surfactants, making them unavailable to act on the surface pollutant that we want to clean.
BLOCKADE’S powerful chelating agent complex (pronounced 'keelating' from the Greek word claw) combines with these disruptive metal ions in the water. The metal ions are surrounded by these ‘claw-like’ chelating agents which alter the electronic charge of the metal ions from positive to negative (see diagram below.) This makes it impossible for the metal ions to be combined with the surfactants. Thus, chelated metal ions remain tied up in solution in a harmless state where they will not use up the powerful cleaning power of our surfactants.
