What You Should Know about Car Wash Chemicals

Several different car wash chemicals are available for deep cleaning. This includes a mixture of varied ingredients designed for specific purpose. Solvents, surfactant, chelators, wetting agents, and saponifiers are the most common types of chemicals in use. The surfactant is the detergent and the soap. It contains two compounds mainly where one molecule of attraction for soil or the dirt and the other for water. Chemical compound with attraction for water is the hydrophile and its function is to surround the dirt. Similarly, the compound attracted to dirt is the hydrophobe with the function of breaking soil to small pieces for the hydrophile to surround. This dirt floats away upon washing.
The commonest solvent for washing cars is water. Mineral spirits will work quite effectively on grease, tar and other petroleum soils. It might become necessary to use mineral spirits upon surfaces where water damage might occur. Besides this, the professionals also use care chemicals like the butyl and d-limonene that is made from lemon peels and orange. The chemists will modify hydrophobe and hydrophile molecules for changing surfactant characteristics. Despite the surfactant being a good detergent, it might not be an effective penetrating agent.

Wetting and penetration facilitate surrounding of soil by water for removal. It is possible to improve performance of quality detergent surfactant through inclusion of second surfactant with good penetrating and wetting capabilities. Chemists use agents like saponifiers that are alkaline substances for converting oil and fat into soap. Some shampoos used by car washer professionals have the capability to hold suds for longer periods in comparison to others. You cannot however distinguish quality wash products just by the amount of suds they can produce.
