PCA Formula 4 Powdered Cleaning Agent for hot water extraction cleaning

The optimum in commercial grade cleaning agent emulsifiers, PCA Formula 4 is safe and recommended for most types of extraction equipment. It contains unique surfactants for maximum cleaning and solubility required for siphon-feed induction type equipment, as well as special chemical complexes that increase production and decrease drying time for portable type equipment.

PCA Formula 4 is highly concentrated and contains 100% active ingredients, descaling agents, plus pile-softening, anti-foaming and odor-controlling ingredients. It is not affected by extreme hot water conditions and can be mixed and stored in a concentrated form without settling or potency loss occurring. An excellent product to use in restaurants, trashed apartments and heavily soiled carpets.

  • PCA Formula 4 is outstanding on removing oils from oil-loving olefin carpets.
  • PCA Formula 4 should never be used with equipment containing aluminum pumps or water tanks.
  • PCA Formula 4 has been designed for commercial only. Do not use on stain-resistant nylon fibers, natural fibers, upholstery, prints, or BASF Zeftron® 2000.
  • For professional use only! Not for use by consumers!
