A clean affair
May 2017 – The German oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY is launching two new products for boats on the market: A universal cleaner and a preservative for motors. "Both new products help to conserve the value of a boat," says Jan Volk, who is responsible for the marine business at LIQUI MOLY.
The Marine Universal Cleaner K is a concentrate that is particularly well-suited to the cleaning of large surfaces. During its development, LIQUI MOLY was able to draw on its experience with its care products for cars, yet the requirements in the boat sector made a completely new development necessary. It is particularly important, for example, that the cleaner be biodegradable. And, unlike with cleaners for cars, it has little foam despite its high cleaning performance.
"We have a broad area of use here for the cleaning of common contaminations such as dark streaks and bird droppings, as well as scuff marks from shoes and fenders," says Jan Volk. The LIQUI MOLY Universal Cleaner K is suitable for painted and unpainted plastics, GRP and Gelcoat as well as textile soft tops, brass, aluminum, stainless steel, chrome, rubber and painted or sealed wood.
The K in the Universal Cleaner K stands for concentrate, which makes its use particularly productive. In the event of tough stains, it is diluted at a ratio of 1:8; in normal cleaning, a ratio of 1:20 is sufficient.
The second new product by LIQUI MOLY is the Marine Storage Fogging Oil. It is used in the long-term preservation of two and four-stroke motors. It is sprayed into the combustion chamber and protects cylinder walls, piston heads and piston rings against corrosion. This prevents any nasty surprises when returning the motor to service.
