Pre-charged glycol-based solvent
WAYNE NJ — Caled Chemical has announced a product upgrade to its GenX Solvent. GenX with Ultra Touch includes a pre-charge of detergent with anti-static additives which the company said should let users reduce and in many cases eliminate the use of detergent, pre-spotting labor and spotting chemical cost while providing excellent garment feel and easy pressing and finishing.
GenX with Ultra Touch is a specially formulated glycol-based solvent with pre-charged detergent, anti-static and redeposition properties. It provides a high Kb value and wet side stain removal along with improved anti-static and redeposition properties, the company said.
Caled Chemical pre-charges GenX with Ultra Touch during the manufacturing process to produce a one-shot solvent to create an improvement in cleaning technology.
All hydrocarbon machines can use GenX with Ultra Touch; no equipment upgrade is needed. A specially formulated GenX Concentrate is used to upgrade existing hydrocarbon solvent without disposal. After the GenX Concentrate is used to upgrade existing hydrocarbon, regular GenX with Ultra Touch is used to maintain the level of cleaning performance. The goal is to raise the hydrocarbon machine’s Kb value to the GenX’s 73Kb while lowering the cost of detergent and spotting chemicals.
GenX consumer marketing is free to all users with no contract or commitment. All GenX customers are entitled to a free consumer window poster and internet ad subscription.
