Smoke Melt

Smoke Melt tackles sooty masonry surfaces. Just a bit mixed with water restores oil stained metal, wood, or masonry. An undiluted dosage quickly strips paints.

The manufacturer highlighted these factors:

Advantages

  • Removes heavy carbon deposits
  • Removes food and petroleum oil staining

Limitations
  • Etches windows

Preparation

  • Protect anodized aluminum, glass and painted substrates.
  • Cover foliage with polyethylene or other proven protective material.
  • Avoid wind drift on surrounding surfaces such as auto and pedestrian traffic.

Surface & 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 40° 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 90° 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.

Pretesting
  • Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations.
  • Testing should confirm cleaning effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be cleaned.
  • Test also to determine the desired surface contact time and any potential for adverse reactions with adjacent materials.
  • Allow test panels to dry thoroughly before evaluating final appearance and results.
  • Great care must be taken when applying this product because of its highly active penetrating nature.

How to dilute Smoke Melt?
  • 4:1 - 9:1 for severe smoke damage.
  • 15:1 for light smoke damage.
  • Use undiluted - 10:1 for brushing application and oil stain removal.

Suitable Substrates
Metals, masonry materials, and wood

Application Instructions
  • Always protect the surrounding area by temporarily covering with plastic.
  • If you are spraying this product always try to stay away from or above the mist, as it will burn your skin.
  • Pre-wet (not soak), the area with water before applying the product.
  • A nylon brush can be used to apply, when necessary.
  • With a strong dilution, apply downstream through a pressure washer for severe smoke damage.
  • With a weaker dilution, apply with a low pressure applicator for light smoke damage.
  • For black crust removal, use undiluted.
  • Let the product dwell for fifteen minutes to an hour.
  • When removing smoke damage, use a higher dilution based on testing results.
  • Allow the product lengthy dwell time, as Smoke Melt has special additives that causes soils to rise to the surface.
  • Craftsmanship determines the appropriate pressures for rinsing.
  • A thorough rinse job is always recommended, however, our chemistry never requires flooding a wall.
  • Pressures that mark or damage the surface should be avoided.
  • When in doubt, follow the manufacturers recommended P.S.I. for the substrate on which you are working.

General Advice: Always follow safety precautions.
