GLIPTONE solvents are bringing outstanding results to professional detailers throughout the USA and around the World. Although the GLIPTONE ‘ADHESIVE REMOVER’ and ‘TAR OFF’ remain among the top choices as universal cleaning solvents, each featured GLIPTONE solvent has its special place in the detailing process. Professionals reach for these products to help with some of the toughest cleaning jobs (glues, road tar and grime, undercoating and rustproofing residue, etc.). Apart from cotton and microfiber rags, brushes can be a more effective option of delivering the solvents to the surface. Consider using the #290 and #2867HH brushes on page 18. These ‘horsehair-type’ brushes are strong enough to hold the cleaning solvent, soft enough not to scratch, and add benefit from the scrubbing action of the bristles. Most Lacquer Thinners purchased are being used as an effective part of the cleaning process rather than to “Thin” Lacquer. CAUTION must always be observed when allowing Lacquer Thinners to touch plastics and painted surfaces. We also suggest work out of a properly labeled metal quart can. Lacquer Thinners and other flammable solvents should never be atomized through a spray trigger as this creates a flammable mist and fire hazard. Handling, storage and disposal of solvent soiled rags should be conducted in accordance with local laws. ‘Think Green’ and try using the GLIPTONE ‘CITRASOL’, which is a ‘Delimonene-based’, ‘Hydrocarbon-Free’ solvent derived from natural citrus fruit. This formula represents a more ‘user friendly’ and ‘Earth friendly’ option. CITRASOL can also be diluted with water to mitigate the premium price associated with an ingredient tied into the commodity citrus market. We have testimonials of ‘CITRASOL’, at a 50:50 dilution, melting globs of road tar off the quarter panels of pickup trucks throughout the hot Texas market. Additional uses include removing gum and various sticky substances from interior surfaces while leaving a fresh, citrus scent. Try some soon!
