Discrete is an advance in the chemistry of removing cement and grout residues from concrete mixing and transporting equipment, newly laid tiled flooring and a variety of surfaces affected by cement splash on the construction site.
This human and environmentally safe cleaning product is used in and around the mining, machinery and concrete industries and sites Australia wide.
Some of the sites that are using Discrete Concrete Remover are Olympic Dam, Lady Loretta Mine, Mt Isa, North Parkes, Cadia, Mineral Hill and many more Australia Wide.
A low pH organic salt blended with biodegradable wetting agents. Discrete is based on acid-replacement technology and although low in pH does not contain traditional acids such as Hydrofluoric, Hydrochloric, Sulfuric, Nitric, Citric, Sulphamic, Oxalic and Glycolic.
This proprietary formulation uses newly researched acid-replacement technology where the organic salt, being low in pH, acts like an acid in the cleaning process but has none of the characteristics associated with acid cleaners. This provides the user with all the cement residue removal power they need without the associated dangers of using an acid such as acid burns, fuming and dangerous goods transportation and storage.
Discrete displays a dramatically improved corrosive profile to traditional acid cleaners in respect of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. When used as directed, negligible corrosion occurs and even when used undiluted the level of corrosion to ferrous metals is almost undetectable. However, it should be remembered that Discrete has a low pH and corrosion will occur on metals submerged in Discrete for extended periods.
We have been using Discrete at Lachlan Ready Mix in Forbes and Condobolin for a number of years. We have seven trucks all working in a harsh environment and we are very pleased with the product.
After having the acid based chemical we had been using to clean our vehicles, banned on our worksite, we were forced to look for an alternative acid free cleaner to remove the build-up of mine grime on our vehicles. While the acid based chemical was effective, it was dangerous to use and was damaging to the vehicles and machinery. After the first day of using Discrete, we found it to be just as, if not more effective in removing the build-up pf grime and cement etc on our vehicles and machinery then the acid based cleaner we used previously. In conclusion I would recommend Discrete as a safe alternative for cleaning mining vehicles like never before!
This product has worked well removing concrete from our grout pumps, mixer pumps and bowls. We use Discrete to maintain a high standard of scheduled maintenance.
