While this list is extensive, there are other substrates that HD Britenol may be suitable for that are not listed.

Britenol can be used on a variety of masonry surfaces, polished stone surfaces, limestone, fiberglass, tile, porcelain, metal finishes, concrete, wood, painted aluminum and vinyl siding.

Redwood Deck - The most remarkable attribute of HD Britenol was being able to restore the wood to new while not causing any damage to the surrounding plants or surfaces. For removing the environmental stain, two applications of HD Britenol was used with a low pressure rinse with a wide fan nozzle to avoid damaging the wood.

HD Britenol in an all-purpose cleaner designed for residential and light duty commercial applications.

HDBritenol works great on most substrates and will not harm people or animals when used as directed, however care should be taken to protect plants. 

HD Britenol is sold as a concentrate and ships not regulated by the D.O.T.

• Safely replaces bleach on most applications
• Cleans using brushless application
• Can be used on multiple substrates
• Great for use in either commercial or residential applications
• Improves productivity
• Do not allow product to dry on the surface. Always
rinse thoroughly.
• Generally, not effective on very old thick-crusted carbon deposits
• Not a restoration detergent
• Diamond Deck can blush, even when using this product at high dilutions. 

Perform spot testing when unsure the surface you are cleaning is compatible. 

Coverage Rates
Coverage rates will vary based on dilutions, porosity severity of stain, application method, and other factors.
Proper testing will determine actual coverage rate.
Application Instructions
1. Pre-wet the surface (do not saturate) with water before applying HD Britenol.
2. For best results, apply HD Britenol twice to the surface. Allow several minutes in between
applications - do not allow the product to dry on the surface.
3. HD Britenol can be used as a one-step cleaner or in a two-step cleaning system (acid then alkaline like Post Rinse) with Cleansol BC.

The two-step system creates neutralization and will boost performance in difficult areas such as under eaves.

Proper rinsing techniques determine the final look and quality of the job. A thorough rinse job is always recommended; however, our chemistry never requires flooding the surface. 

HD Britenol can be rinsed using cold water and low pressure. 

Pressures that mark the surface should be avoided. 

When in doubt, follow the manufacturers recommended P.S.I. for the substrates.

Do not use a zero-degree nozzle.
Caution: Do not allow the product to dry on a surface.

Polished Marble - The Ridgewood Savings Bank in Laurelton, NY is comprised of polished marble which can be as tricky to clean as polished granite. HD Britenol is a great choice for both surfaces since it won’t ruin the polished finish.

Wood Fence - HD Britenol removed the black environmental stains from this wooden fence.

Protect adjacent surfaces and surrounding building hardware not intended to be cleaned from exposure to the cleaning solution. 

Avoid direct contact with foliage, wet the foliage with water before and after cleaning. 

Avoid wind drift on surrounding surfaces such as auto and pedestrian traffic.

Surface & Air Temperatures
Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results and possible harm. Best cleaning results
are obtained when air and surface temperatures are above 40 degrees Fahrenheit and less than 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for the surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit, cool the surface with water before applying product. 

Do not allow products to dry on the surface. 

Always rinse thoroughly while still wet.

Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations. Pre-testing will determine suitability and effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be cleaned. Pre-testing will also determine dwell times and number of applications required to achieve desired results. Pre-testing will show any potential or adverse reactions to adjacent surfaces. Allow test areas to thoroughly dry before
evaluating final appearance and results.

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water. Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. Proposition 65 became law in November 1986, when California voters approved it by a 63-37 percent margin.  The official name of Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.

The list of chemicals contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that include additives or ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, drugs, dyes, or solvents. Listed chemicals may also be used in manufacturing and construction, or they may be byproducts of chemical processes, such as motor vehicle exhaust.  For more information visit www.p65warnings.ca.gov/
