Forgot To Dilute KBS Klean With Water. What Should I Do?
KBS Klean is a powerful concentrate cleaner and should always be diluted with water at least 1 to 1 for maximum effectiveness. You can remedy this situation by taking some clean water and a green scotch brite type pad and gently rinsing the surface with the clean water and green scotch brite type pad.
I have some new metal straight from the factory so it's clean. Do I still need to use the KBS Klean?
New metal straight from the factory has all sorts of solvents, manufacturing residues, and oils on it, so it is absolutely critical to wash the surface down with KBS Klean before you proceed on to etch the surface with RustBlast.
On top of that, new metal is usually very slick, so be sure you spend plenty of time on the RustBlast step to ensure you get a great etch on the surface creating an ideal anchor pattern so RustSeal sticks really well.
Yes, KBS Klean is ideal for cleaning unpainted aluminum surfaces. The best practice is to mix 25-Parts Hot Water and 1-Part KBS Klean and clean with the use of a very soft non-abrasive cleaning pad. Rinse the KBS Klean solution immediately making sure you do not let it sit on the surface and dry in a way that minimizes any water stains.
Can I use KBS Klean full strength or is KBS Klean always supposed to be diluted?
KBS Klean is designed to be diluted. A full-strength dilution would be 1-part hot water with 1-part KBS Klean. But you can go up to 10-parts hot water and 1-part KBS Klean and even 25-parts water and 1-part KBS Klean depending on your job.
My tank has an internal fuel pump and fuel strainer assembly consisting of a mix of plastic and metal parts. Is it safe to use KBS Klean on these parts?
Yes, you can absolutely use KBS Klean on the plastic and metal parts on the inside of the tank as KBS Klean will not harm plastic. You can also run KBS Klean safely through the fuel pump to clean it out.
