BOSS by EaCo ChemBOSS is an alkaline-solvent base oil spot remover that whitens concrete while removing oil stains. It is also used to remove food oil from exhaust hoods.

Surface and Air Temperatures
Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results and possible harm. Best cleaning results are obtained when air and surface temperatures are 40째 Fahrenheit or above. Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90째 Fahrenheit, flash cool the surface with water before applying product. Do not allow products to dry on the surface. Always rinse thoroughly while still wet.
Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations. Testing should confirm cleaning effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be removed. Testing also determines the desired dwell time and any potential for adverse reactions with adjacent materials. Allow test panels to dry thoroughly before evaluating final appearance and results.
How to dilute? It's fine to apply BOSS undiluted, but exercise personal safety precautions and follow preparation tips (see above).
Refer to product label and manufacturer's instructions for other details.
