DESCRIPTION

HOLDBRITE XF (EXTRA FOAM) is specifically formulated for the effective removal of heavy duty residues, without harming the paint and the personnel using it. The rich foaming of the product allows it to stick onto the surface, completely removing any residues. HOLDBRITE XF is highly concentrated, comprising special detergents, surfactants and corrosion inhibitors, while being safe to the environment, containing only bio-degradable ingredients.

HOLDBRITE XF is water based, non flammable, biodegradable and IMO-approved. Only cleaners registered in Annex10 of IMO’s MEPC.2/Circular can be used and disposed of at sea for cargo tank cleaning, when the cargo residue slops are disposable at sea.

Its composition meets the criteria for not being harmful to the marine environment according to MARPOL Annex V.

 


APPLICATION

Use on cargo holds on bulk carriers and OBOs. Ideal for cleaning after most dry cargoes, up to “water white standard”. Effectively removes stains and discolouring after discharge of cargoes such as pet coke, coal, and other oily cargoes. Also use to remove greases, waxes, vegetable and animal oils, sludge, soot, carbon deposits, dirt and grime. Use effectively from black to white standards.

Further diluted, it is ideal for maintenance cleaning.

If only HOLDBRITE is available onboard, you may add CHEMO FOAM BOOSTER and increase the resident time, thus cleaning efficiency.

Suitable for most painted surfaces, dries leaving a good shine. Not suitable for zinc silicate coatings. In this case, use our IMO-approved SUPER RED.

Please refer to “CHEMO CARGO HOLD CLEANING SOLUTIONS” Brochure, which summarizes the solutions that CHEMO offers for tackling a variety of contamination and deposit problems.

 


USE AND DOSING

Dilute from 10 to 25% of HOLDBRITE XF in fresh water. Spray the solution onto the surface, using spray foam equipment. Allow solution to penetrate soil for 10-30 minutes and then wash off thoroughly with high pressure fresh water. Repeat the procedure if necessary. Always wash off before chemicals dry on the surface.

The high foaming action of HOLDBRITE XF allows the chemicals to stick to the surface longer, before drying. For heavily soiled areas, a preliminary cleaning is required. If surface is heavily contaminated, higher concentrations of the product in water can be used, even neat if contamination persists.

Apply HOLD BARRIER or HOLD BARRIER XR on the cargo hold surfaces prior to loading, so that the concentration of HOLDBRITE XF in the cleaning solution can be reduced.

For general use, dilute appropriately, depending on the contamination and use conventional cleaning methods, such as brushing, scrubbing or spraying. Allow the product to act and then rinse off with fresh water before drying.

Instructions are based on experience and are meant only as a guide since circumstances for each tank cleaning operation vary. They are not intended to interfere with the judgment of the vessel’s responsible personnel.

 


RECOMMENDATIONS

Safe to use on all metal surfaces and parts except aluminium, zinc, tin and its alloys. It is highly recommended to always test all cleaner solutions on a small area of tank coating, before full scale application.
