ACTIBLEND Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an agitator or stick to mix the Components?
No, the Components are formulated to slide into solution with only the gentle addition of water to your container, whether it is a drum or tote.
Won’t the solution foam up as I add the Components?
It is important while filling the container that you keep the end of the water hose beneath the surface of the water as it fills, according to the instructions. This will prevent the solution from foaming.
What if I add the Components in reverse order, and put in the B first instead of the B?
This is not a problem. The Components are formulated to blend together easily, no matter what order they are added.
What if I don’t have equal amounts of A and B – should I produce a drum anyway?
It is not recommended to blend the A and B Components in unequal amounts. They have been specially formulated in balance to provide the best performance. If you have unequal amounts, check first with Nuance or your supplier to remedy this imbalance.
Can I produce a drum using only half of the A and B to save money?
While the solution you produce will function as a cleaner, all of the instructions for use will be incorrect – they are written for a full strength blend. Consult your salesperson for more specific instructions.
Should I put all of the water in the drum or tank before I begin?
It is best to put in a small amount of water first, 5 gallons or so, to make the blending easiest. The balance of the water will blend the two Components together fully.
Since I am blending products, does using this system make me a manufacturer?
No. Think of the combination of the components like a two-part epoxy. You are simply diluting them with water. Until they are put together, they simply won’t work.
What if I put in only the A Component or only the B Component – can I clean?
Neither Component on its own will function as a cleaner. Call you salesperson or our Customer Service for instructions.
What sort of Personal Protective Equipment will I need?
The recommended PPE is listed on the literature and MSDS. Always follow these recommendations for safety.
How do I know which product to choose?
There are several ways; the best way is to have a cleaning needs assessment and survey done by one of our professionals. We also have product matching charts that enable us to “match up” our products with most of the major manufacturers. Supervised trials with a few choices are also a common method for determining the best product for use.
