Roof Coating and Roof Repairs

Roofing is permanently subjected to the effects of the British weather and it does not matter what material is used or whether it is a flat or pitched roof, it will slowly but surely deteriorate.  Your roof  will gradually become less resistant to water, it will absorb some of the rain falling on it, offering lichen and moss a good opportunity to become established. These then cause further deterioration which can subsequently lead to the failure of the roof. Once water starts to get in, roof repairs become a necessity; see our services here

Roof Cleaning Equipment

When should I repair my roof?

If the roofing material has already failed, the answer is obviously 'as soon as possible', however, it would be preferable to make roof repairs before that point is reached. On pitched roofs, inspect for tile slippage regularly, especially after spells of very poor weather. If your roofing material is metal or other corrugated material, check that all of the fastenings are secure and that none of the sheets have slipped out of place.

On flat roofs, check around the edges, cracking indicates the roof material is ageing and that it could be well on the way to failure even if the rest appears to be in good condition. If your roof is noticeably undulating, this also indicates that it could require repair. All flat roofs will show a degree of puddling i.e. you will notice standing water after rain, but this should disappear fairly quickly. Puddles that are persistent can indicate underlying issues.

Roof coatings

The fastest way to carry out roof repairs is to apply roof coatings such as our Bitu-Bond or Roof -Bond. If the worst has happened and your roof has already sprung a leak, Bitu-Bond provides you with an instant roof repair solution, simply spray it on and leave it to cure for a one-visit permanent repair. It can be used in all weathers and contains fibres for added strength and to enable smaller cracks to be bridged. It is an essential product for your maintenance crew to have on hand and it can be used to repair leaks in all types of roof, not just flat ones.

For non-emergency roof repairs, Roof-Bond is another cold curing bitumen based product. It can be applied to the whole roof by brush and once cured, it forms a tough, seamless and durable layer that expands and contracts in response to thermal or other movement of the roof without cracking. It too is a one-visit solution designed for use on any roofing material or type and it cures as fast as Bitu-Bond so roof repairs can be carried out quickly.

Roof Cleaning Work

For those of you who prefer to use an acrylic based roof repair mastic, we stock Acrypol. This is a brush-on liquid that is reinforced with fibres and has an excellent resistance to damage from UV.

How do I repair my roof using a roof coating?

  • Remove any flaking and loose material
  • Bridge any wide cracks using a suitable roof repair bandage
  • Dampen the surface
  • Apply Bitu-Bond, Roof-Bond or Acrypol
  • Leave to cure
  • If desired, once cured, further layers can be added.

Roof coatings have other uses too

If your maintenance team have a roof coating product in stock, there are many other jobs around your premises that it can be used for. Up high, it can be used to repair or reinforce guttering and gulleys, rendering them waterproof without the need for a lot of expensive and disruptive work.

If you have exposed steelwork, for example open sided outdoor storage areas, conventional paints will flake off within a year or two. Since our roof coatings are more flexible than conventional paint, they are an effective longer term solution enabling you to save both money and labour time.

Prevention is better than cure, keeping your roofing clean can prolong its life expectancy. Our sister company, APT-ICC ltd, cleans all types of roofing and guttering including aluminium, cast iron and plastic on all types of building, including factories, commercial premises and listed buildings.

What is the Best Product for Cleaning a Factory Floor

This isn't the easiest of questions to answer as a lot will depend on the nature of the factory floor and the soiling that you want to remove. Here at APT, because we have a quarter of a century's worth of experience in commercial and industrial cleaning, we are uniquely placed to advise you. In our range of factory floor cleaning products, you are sure to find something to suit your situation.

Industrial concrete floor cleaning

Why clean a factory floor?

A dirty factory floor gives the wrong message about your company to both visitors and employees, it suggests that a sloppy approach is acceptable. Potential clients on seeing a dirty factory will have less trust in your products and your sales could suffer. Providing your employees with a clean environment in which to work will inspire them to take more of a pride in what they do, meaning a lower percentage of items failing quality control, giving your company a great reputation in your field.

Apart from the financial considerations, a clean factory floor will avoid health and safety issues - greasy soiling can be very slippery, especially when staff enter with wet footwear. Using the best possible product to clean a factory floor can therefore reduce the probability of accidents.

Cleaning floors in the engineering and automotive industries

The most common soiling on engineering factory floors is a combination of oil and grease binding together dust, swarf and other particles that have been walked or blown into the factory. The best cleaning product is therefore a degreaser. If the grime has been present for many years, it will require a water soluble solvent degreaser like Citracleanse, applied at a 1:20 dilution to remove it completely since it will be deeply ingrained into the floor. Additional spot applications of a non-dilutable solvent degreaser like Citrus RTU is the best approach where soiling is particularly bad. 

Once it has been removed, and your factory floor returned to its pristine condition, regular maintenance with an extremely economical water based degreaser like Citracleanse at an economical dilution of 1:200 is the best way to keep the factory floor clean. 

Another reason why citracleanse is the best product to clean a factory floor is that it will even remove rubber marks left by the passage of fork lift trucks and other warehouse vehicles.

Industrial Floor Cleaning

The best products to clean floors in food factories

As a manager of a food factory, you will no doubt always be under pressure to ensure that your factory floors are clean and hygienic. You require a powerful degreaser that is able to remove food-specific floor soiling that is acceptable for use in a catering and food production environment. Such products can be budget-busting, however, at APT, we understand that cleaning budgets can be limited so we have produced a range of products that deliver the best results at a price that enables you to control your company spending.

For areas that are bacteria sensitive, the best possible floor cleaning product is Ultraclean MB, an eco-friendly, odour-free and highly concentrated degreaser and sanitiser. This fast acting product meets BS EN1276 and is economical to use. 

For general food factory floor cleaning, the best product is PowerMax 2020 which easily removes fats, oils, blood and other food residues. In common with the other cleaning products mentioned here, it can be used manually or with floor cleaning machinery.

Removing Graffiti and Preventing Future Vandalism – 4 Choices

Graffiti costs private business and home owners a lot of money to remove. Depending on your situation, the type of surface that has been vandalised and the materials used to deface your property, there are a few different options you can consider to remove the graffiti, and/or put in place preventative measures to stop vandals from hitting you in the future with obscene and offensive markings.

Surfaces can widely vary, from brickwork to concrete, aluminium, pavements and bus stops. Each will have a different level of resistance and a different reaction to certain cleaning chemicals. Alongside this the type of materials used by vandals isn’t always the spray can that has become associated with graffiti. They can use marker pen, paint, makeup or polish.

Another problem you have to consider is how long the graffiti has been present. The longer graffiti has been on a surface, as with any type of dirt you’re trying to clean away from a surface, the harder it will be to fully remove. So what are your options?

Pressure Washing

Mixing water with a graffiti removing solvent and applying to the affected area with a pressure washer is a fantastic way to combat graffiti which has been present for a long enough period of time to become stubborn and resistant to other methods. Choosing the right cleaning chemical is crucial however, as you do not want to damage the surface underneath. If you are in need of a larger area to be cleaned of graffiti with blasting equipment it may be best to call out a professional team who can deal with any situation, no matter the area size or stubbornness of the graffiti in question.

Sacrificial Surface

A sacrificial surface is something you can apply to an area to prevent permanent damage. It could be a removable protective film that acts as a barrier and catches any graffiti or marks to the surface and which you can then remove, leaving a clean, undamaged surface behind. Certain coatings, or anti-graffiti gels can be applied to areas to provide this type of insurance against vandalism, and the anti-graffiti paint mentioned above is also a great sacrificial coating as a vandal can try all they like to graffiti over it, but they will struggle much more than a normal surface. The substrate below remains intact and clean from surface damage and markings.

Removing with Chemical Products

There are a few different options when it comes to chemical cleaning products aimed at removing graffiti from surfaces. No matter the type of surface you will be able to find a chemical product that can remove it. It’s about choosing the right one for the surface you need to clean without leaving a permanent damaged area where graffiti once was. The stronger a solvent is the faster it is likely to remove the paint/graffiti from the surface area.  For smaller areas of graffiti you can quite simply use a brush, cloth or anti-graffiti wipe to apply the cleaning product to the surface. Or larger jobs there may be the necessity for an industrial graffiti remover and some heavier equipment.

Paint it Out

If the surface in question isn’t one that you particularly want to use cleaning chemicals on then there is another option. By painting over the surface you can remove the graffiti from sight safely and without potentially damaging the surface. This approach is best on surfaces which are smooth and already painted. As a way of adding insurance you can use anti-graffiti paint which not only covers the problem, but has been designed to be incredibly tough and resistant against damage and vandalism.

Contact APT –ICC Ltd (Our sister company) and they’ll help you out with a fast response.

Industrial Oven Cleaner

Cleaning your oven at the best of times is a cumbersome chore that none of us like to attend to if we’re truly honest with ourselves. Switch that conversation to the setting of an industrial sized oven and food production area, or any commercial kitchen and it becomes less of a chore to bother with than a necessity that could make the difference between a successful and a failing kitchen.

A Clean Kitchen is a Healthy Kitchen

Wherever food is being produced health and safety has to be a priority. You can’t risk your food becoming contaminated due to the industrial ovens becoming clogged up with food, dirt, oils and grease. In a food production environment the heat is always on – so be ready to wipe down surfaces and clean the oven thoroughly so it looks brand new.

Fully Clean Away Tough to Remove Oils and Grease

For people who don’t work in a food production factory or commercial kitchen it can be hard to appreciate just how quickly an industrial oven can become dirty and appear worn down and ineffective. There are so many hot oils and grease in play in a kitchen that all surfaces can quickly become covered. An industrial oven cleaner can cut through all types of oil and grease without you having to scrub hard at it for hours. You need a cleaning product that will make its mark straight away and leave a fully clean surface area and industrial oven that hasn’t got stains and marks of the working day left behind when you clock off at the end of a long, hard shift.

Be Prepared for the Next Working Day

Cleaning away the day’s dirt is an essential part of the end of day task. In a food production environment, whether a kitchen or a factory setting, the best way to start tomorrow and be as effective as possible is to clean today. Much like with any equipment you use, the longer term strategy has to be to keep it at its optimum levels of efficiency for as long as possible.

By thoroughly cleaning your industrial oven each day, with a quality product, it will stay effective for a lot longer. As a financial strategy it is a winner as you’ll pay less out on maintenance calls and new ovens over the years. On a day to production strategy it also works as your work can start straight away without the need for yesterdays cleaning to be completed first.

Industrial Oven Cleaner from APT

The industrial oven cleaners you’ll find with APT have been scientifically developed to deliver. Your average oven cleaner won’t cut it when it comes to the heat of the working kitchen and our products will cut through all types of grease, food deposits, grime and carbon deposits, leaving behind a sparkling oven that looks brand new.

More importantly it will comply with all health and safety regulations; leave you with the ability to cook without having to worry about the contamination of food from hard to remove grease and oils from the day before, and it will do the job effectively. You won’t have to spend hours of your time scrubbing the oven clean, let our industrial oven cleaners do the work and you can just wipe the grime away and put the finishing touches to the job.

The Benefits of Silicone Lubricants in the Food Production Industry

The Benefits of Silicone Lubricants in the Food Production Industry

Within the food industry you’re likely to find silicone lubricants being widely used as a great way to protect equipment and machinery and also for cleaning purposes. A lubricant is required on moving parts of machinery and on surfaces that are more likely to become clogged with grease and oils, such as in the food production industry.

By using a lubricant on your machinery it is more likely to last at a high level of effectiveness and productivity as the lubricant cleans and coats the surfaces, preventing them from wearing out from friction or allowing mould and rust to settle in places, causing degradation of the equipment. 

Why Silicone Lubricants?

Silicone lubricants are a fantastic option in harsh environments such as the food production and chemical industries. There are a number of reasons why this is the case and over a longer period a silicone lubricant will be much more effective than an organic lubricant in your workplace.

At room temperature a silicone lubricant is less likely to be affected by any temperature changes in the immediate environment due to its viscosity and high boiling point, and because of their inertness to most chemicals a silicone lubricant is perfect for the food industry. They are also incredibly versatile and strong, able to withstand huge weight as well as temperature.

It’s resistance to oxidisation means that silicone is always an attractive option for a lubricant when compared to an organic lubricant. The whole reason you need a lubricant for cleaning and as a preventative measure is because you want your equipment and machinery to last as long as possible at the high standard it currently performs at.

 Silicone Lubricants from APT

If your machinery runs smoothly in your food production area, then your business will too. Silicone lubricants are intended to minimise the impact of friction between multiple moving parts, ensuring that the productivity levels of your company are never at risk of grinding down to a halt due to burnout.

At APT we understand how important that is and have developed silicone lubricants that are perfect for the food industry, especially when compared to the effectiveness of organic lubricants. We only sell the highest quality of products across our whole range and our silicone lubricant is no different.

Take a look at http://www.aptcommercialchemicals.co.uk/silicone-lubricant

You can use it on any number of surfaces – saving you on your budget as you’ll be able to use one for all aspects of your cleaning and machinery protection. If you’d like to speak to a member of our team about silicone lubricants for your specific industry and machinery, we’ll be more than happy to offer advice and guidance.  Give us a call and we can talk you through the benefits for your productivity, long term budgets and machinery maintenance.

 

 

 

Brick Cleaner – How to Effectively Clean Brickwork

If left for a long period without any cleaning being undertaken the brickwork to your property can start to become dirty and covered in moss. Of course the longer you leave it like this, the harder it will become to effectively remove.

What are your main options when it comes to cleaning brick without damaging the surface and the appearance of your property? Each of the options below can be used in conjunction with a cleaning fluid; there are so many options available on the market that it can hard to know which one is most suited to your property, type of brickwork and situation.

Hand Washing

Using a stiff brush to scrub away with and a bucket full of hot soapy water you can manually clean the brickwork on the exterior wall of your home or business premises. Of course, by scrubbing away at the brickwork you will remove some of the dirt, and some of the moss which is growing there but it will take a huge amount of time and effort on your part.

 It won’t however give you a deep, penetrative clean which if you are in a position where the brickwork requires cleaning is probably what you were hoping for come the end of the task. Cleaning brickwork can be difficult to judge and dependent on the type of cleaning fluid you are using and the surface itself, washing by hand could potentially leave you unsatisfied with the end result.

Pressure Washing

The pressure washer is the go to piece of equipment when any large surface area needs a deep cleanse it seems. It will give you the power and efficiency from high water pressure that allows you to get into the nooks and crannies and really blast away not just the excess dirt and marks from your brickwork.

Once you’ve blasted off the excess dirt and got into all areas of the brickwork and mortar there is a danger that by blasting at the surface you are in fact damaging the surface for good and leaving behind not just a surface that looks brand new, but a new surface itself – not the one you originally had when you turned on the pressure washer.

Industrial Cleaner from APT

At APT we develop our products over many years to ensure that they not only effectively perform the cleaning tasks they say they do, but that they are safe to use and leave no lasting damage at all to the surfaces being treated. We’ve taken this approach with our Extreme Wash 80 product, which is perfect for the tricky surface to clean – brickwork. http://www.aptcommercialchemicals.co.uk/extreme-wash-80-acid-brick-cleaner-2

You won’t have to worry about trying many different methods of cleaning your bricks once you’ve used Extreme Wash 80 as it is a product that works no matter the surface or the methods you use to clean with it.

It is a concentrated cleaning fluid which works perfectly on brickwork and also functions as a highly effective industrial descaler, so if you require the exterior of your premises to be fully cleaned and looking brand new, and your pipe work is struggling to function to its full potential due to limescale build-up, this product is definitely for you. It’s fast acting, doesn’t require too much elbow grease and will save you time and money testing out all the other, less effective, brick cleaners on the market.

Case Study - K Rend Cleaning and Algae Removal at Garnteg Primary School

Case Study

K Rend Cleaning and Algae Removal at Garnteg Primary School

Client: Torfaen County Borough Council, Garnteg Primary School  

Project: The client’s school building was in a very bad state with over 15 years of red and black algae growth, moss, lichen build up and staining which was very off putting to new potential children and parents wishing to come to the school. The school had an excellent record for teaching and a fantastic range of facilities, but the external façade was in need of attention. The local authority called APT after the head of the school requested help to find an algae removal solution or to enhance the visual impact of the school.

The Challenge

Several companies had already quoted for cleaning and re-painting the k render surface and some commercial cleaning companies did not respond after seeing the extent of the algae problem. There were several issues with the cleaning programme, the school was built over three levels and some with very limited access, and the school would remain open whilst the cleaning took place which included very young children, teachers and parents to be considered. This was all taken in to account during the consultation with the client and allowances were scheduled into the working plan for approval with the client and managed vigorously on a day to day basis with flexibility and allowances for any programme changes.

APT’S Solution

APT carried out a full survey of the property and there was over 3000 square meters of k render surface coating on three levels and some with very limited access. We discussed the type of cleaning and method with the client along with the ongoing future maintenance programme.

After receiving approval we arranged the cleaning program and hired the specialised lift access and allocated the materials including the APT k render cleaner and algae remover which would kill algae and remove moss and other surface stains (Algae Free). We carried out a test sample for approval by the property services manager and head of school. We completed the k render cleaning and treatment works over a 10 day period working late evenings and weekends to minimise disruption to the school programme.

Result

The results spoke for themselves and the head of school and all staff and many parents commenting that the school was as good as new. The k render did not need to be painted as first proposed saving thousands of pounds.

Time is Money – How to Make Effective Cleaning Supply Choices

Time is Money – How to Make Effective Cleaning Supply Choices

When you are in the process of formulating a cleaning plan for your team there are a number of considerations to take; the size and length of the task at hand, the size of the team of cleaning engineers you have working on it and the type of product you’re best utilising for an effective and high quality clean.

At any level of business time = money and in certain industries time is more crucial than others. At the planning stage of a cleaning task it is imperative that you choose the right path ahead, or you could be wasting the time of your staff, your valuable money and potentially damaging the area you are meant to be cleaning up and polishing to look brand new.

So, how can you ensure you run a smooth operation?

Choose the Specific Product for the Task at Hand

General cleaning products just won’t cut the mustard when it comes to certain tough stains and dirt within heavy industry. Choosing the right cleaning supplies is easier when you use an industrial cleaning supplier with a record of providing assistance to a wide range of very specific cleaning tasks.

Let’s take for example our own Engineering section of cleaning products http://www.aptcommercialchemicals.co.uk/engineering . When heavy machinery is involved and hours of grease and dirt clogs up the processes, machinery and your hands and workwear you have to be able to trust the product you’re using.

You will most likely require a different cleaning product to maintain machinery; effectively clean different types of surfaces and your own hands. You’ll also require cleaning products which can 99.999% clean the smallest of areas that are crucial to your production line.

Make Life Easier for Your Staff & Protect Your Investment

By buying industrial cleaning supplies you are making life so much easier for your staff and it ties in with the above point. If you buy general purpose cleaning products to be used everywhere you won’t reach the same conclusion as if you use a specific product for a specific task.

Cleaning shouldn’t always be hard work – a quality industrial cleaning product will cut through the dirt and grease, leaving behind a shine that looks brand new, without you having to scrub away for longer than necessary. You’ll have to use more of a lesser quality product and put harder work into it for it to be as effective. This approach, as well as using the wrong type of chemical on certain surfaces can lead to damaged machinery.

Using high quality industrial cleaning supplies that are specific to your task ensures your staff best utilise their time and your machinery is kept in good condition (they can be really expensive to fix or replace in the event of a cleaning mix-up and damage).

Effective Products Save Time & Money

APT has the knowledge and expertise to assist you in choosing the correct product for your industry, place of work and specific task at hand – whether it is to clean away graffiti, tough grease and oils or a more general purpose clean we will definitely be able to help. Our customer service team has bags of experience and by choosing high quality industrial cleaning supplies from a team you can trust you can guarantee that whatever task is at hand, you’ll finish it with aplomb and leave a surface looking brand new. 

Citrus Degreasers – A Fresh Way to Clean All Parts

Citrus Degreasers – A Fresh Way to Clean All Parts

Industrial cleaning can be tough. We understand this. Especially in factory premises, or industries with heavy machinery and many different types of small mechanical parts, finding a cleaning product to perform the task adequately can sometimes be a struggle.

That’s where we come in – providing high quality industrial cleaning supplies with the knowledge and expertise to offer advice on your specific requirements and exactly which type of cleaning product you would be best to purchase, and how to most effectively use it in your given environment.

Citrus degreasers are a fantastic alternative to conventional solvent degreasers, and here’s why:

A Great Parts Cleaner

Sometimes it’s not just simple surfaces which require cleaning. Grease and dirt can become heavy and stuck to every small nook and cranny in your work premises and within the tiniest parts of machinery. Conventional degreasers have always adequately performed the job of cleaning it away, but citrus degreasers do so with real ease.

Our citrus degreasers are versatile and work in a multitude of environments. There’s a reason citrus degreasers are popular with cyclists for instance – they know they can put it to good use in the tightest spaces on their bikes and clean all parts effectively for a smooth and shiny finish without damaging the parts or the overall make-up of the cycle. The same applies to all surfaces and machinery at home and in a working environment.

Cuts Through the Toughest Grease

In an industrial factory or production line grease sticks to everything. If you are in a business where a degreaser is required on a daily basis you have to be able to trust the industrial cleaning product at your disposal. Our citrus degreasers are proven to remove all traces of grease, oils and other contaminants, ensuring that your workplace remains clean, safe for staff and visitors alike from health hazards, and that your machinery remains functioning at a high level at all times.

With citrus degreaser being so effective at working away grease and oils also means that you will save money in the long term as there isn’t as much struggle, and products used, to achieve a high quality finish.

Environmentally Friendly

We take good care that all of our products are developed to be completely up to date with the latest environmental legislation. With conventional solvent degreasers you have to be wary of volatility of the substance and have in mind careful disposal once it has been used.

With APT citrus degreasers however we’ve developed a product which is water soluble and created using eco-friendly natural ingredients. So you can just easily rinse away any spillages and be in control of a much safer environment in which to clean that if you were using older degreaser products.

Leaves a Fresh and Fragrant Smell

And the final beauty of using citrus degreasers – it leaves behind a nice fragrance once you are finished. Of course this isn’t the most important factor when considering which industrial cleaning product or specific heavy degreaser to purchase, but at APT we ally a highly effective degreaser product, made with environmentally friendly ingredients, to a lasting fresh fragrance.

A pleasant smell adds the finishing touches to a cleaning task and leaves your staff and anyone else in the vicinity feeling much cleaner and happier in the process.

Citrus degreasers have become a popular heavy degreaser for a number of reasons, they cut through tough grease and dirt, have been developed to be environmentally friendly, are great for the smallest of machine parts and best of all can leave behind a pleasant smell when you’ve finished cleaning. What more could you ask for?

APT has a range of degreasers and our citrus degreasers come highly recommended for the reasons outlined in this article. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer service team who have bags of experience in assisting companies of all sizes choose the right industrial supplies for their business.

Help the Environment with Quality & Concentrated Cleaning Products

Help the Environment with Quality & Concentrated Cleaning Products

In the past to ‘go green’ and become a company who not only preaches but practices environmentally friendly procedures it could end up costing you a fair wedge of your budget. When it comes to cleaning products this was especially evident, but luckily there are now a multitude of choices for environmentally friendly cleaning products for commercial, industrial and household use and APT are proud to be one of the leaders in the field.

Why Go Green?

Saving the planet and leaving our children, grandchildren and future generations with a sustainable future is something that the majority of us clearly want. We understand that the big issues can only be solved through everyone pulling their weight in terms of the little things and this isn’t meant as a preachy article telling you you’re wrong if you don’t already purchase green, what we are saying is that it is now possible.

Our cleaning chemicals are highly concentrated which leads to a domino effect of environmentally friendly benefits such as less product leading to less packaging and less overall carbon footprint. 

The Benefits of Buying Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Chemicals

There are a number of benefits to buying environmentally, concentrated cleaning products from APT Chemicals. Here are a few of them:

  • Every product you purchase from APT has been developed using only the highest quality ingredients from a natural source. We achieve this without adding on a large price tag.
  • Our commercial cleaning chemicals are highly concentrated and therefore much better for the environment than traditional cleaning products. With less liquid in the bottle achieving the same, if not a better outcome, you’re using less to do more.
  • Packaging and transport costs are lower for concentrated products as when you add up the difference in size over large quantities it really does add up to being environmentally friendly.
  • Re-usable and recyclable materials are used where possible so you can refill your bottles over and over again, or recycle them after use with ease.
  • As the concentrated products are less toxic than previous incarnations of cleaning chemicals, disposal of leftovers or the clean-up of spillages is also much safer and more environmentally friendly.

Scientific advancements in the production of commercial cleaning chemicals have meant that now more than ever you have the ability to purchase and use products that are environmentally friendly. It has become another key condition to check off the list – budget, effectiveness, short-term or long-term use, environmentally friendly.

At APT Chemicals we have put in a lot of hard work to develop concentrated cleaning chemicals for commercial and industrial use that tick all of the boxes. You’ll find environmentally friendly, concentrated chemicals in recyclable packaging and to suit a any budget over the short or the long term. Speak to a member of our customer service team today to discuss your specific needs and how we can help you go green when it comes to selecting cleaning products for your specific situation, company and industry.
