Awlwash is a wash down concentrate formulated to clean Awlgrip, Awlgrip HS and Awlcraft 2000. Contains no alkalis, acids or abrasives.
To help maintain the mirror-like luster of Awlgrip, Alwcraft2000, or Awlgrip2 topcoats, Awlgrip has introduced Awlwash Wahsdown Concentrate(73234). With regular cleaning, Awlwash will help avoid the build-up of dirt and grease which can cause the finish to appear dull. Formulated to clean Awlgrip topcoats, Awlwash does not contain alkalies, acids or abrasives, unlike other "marine soap" products that are not suitable for use on painted surfaces. AwlwashT is 100% biodegradable. Awlwash is recommended prior to use of Awlgrip's Awlcare Protective Polymer Sealer and is available in an easy to dispense tip 'n measure quart bottle which can be refilled with the larger gallon-size container.
Awlwash has been extensively tested in Awlgrip laboratories and in the harsh marine environment. All tests conclude that this product is what our customers have requested for years - an effective detergent for cleaning yet still gentle for frequent use on Awlgrip, Awlgrip 2, and Alwcraft 2000.
Surface Preparation - Rinse surface thoroughly prior to washing.
Mixing and Reduction - 1 ounce (30 ml) of Awlwash per each gallon (3.785 liters) of waters.
Application Instructions - Wash surface while still wet from initial rinsing, using a soft, non-abrasive applicator when washing the surface. Do not allow Awlwash to dry on the surface prior to rinsing. Wash small sections of large surfaces to insure the surface stays wet. Rinse after washing. Wipe with chamois or soft cotton towel to prevent water spots.
Note: If water spots are a problem, Awlgrip recommends using a water softener to reduce water spots. If water beads are allowed to air dry, water evaporation leaves residue on the paint. Remove the reside or risk eventual paint etching. Water spots can be removed with Awlgrip Awlcare protective polymer sealer. Stubborn stains may require a higher concentration of Awlwash. High concentrations require additional rinsing.
Note - Awlgrip recommends washing the surface once per week to prevent dirt buildup.
Optimal surface/ambient temperature range is 18 C/60 F to 35 C/95 F. Proper application and or cure results may be more difficult to achieve when temperatures are outside of this range. Do not apply to surfaces less than 3 C or 5 F above dew point, to surfaces warmer than 41 C/105 F, or when ambient temp is lower than 10 C/50 F or over 41 C/105 F.
