OUR CHEMISTRY AT WORK
Our R&D team is dedicated to providing the best chemical products to our operators and distributors. From our laboratories to the car wash exit, every aspect of the wash process has been considered to ensure best-in-class performance and value for our customers.
A premium product begins with premium ingredients. All Turtle Wax® Pro products contain high quality raw ingredients including reverse osmosis water in chemical blending.
Contact angles are critical to the car wash process. We optimize contact angles so that all cars are cleaned and dried efficiently.
Vehicle Surface Modification Technology (VSMT)
By using complimentary ingredients, our products prepare the surface of each vehicle for optimal cleaning, and maximize protection, water beading, and shine.
Dedicated to Protecting our Planet
Our commitment to environmental protection is part of our business model. All product and packaging development is conducted with the goal of reducing environmental impact around the world.
Our parent company, Transchem Group, has helped establish the guidelines for the Canadian government’s Ecologo Certification Criteria Document for Commercial Car Wash Services.
We are careful in selecting ingredients that meet environmental regulations of all municipal, provincial/state and federal sewer-use by-laws. Our formulas do not contain phosphates, Ammonium Bifluoride (ABF) or Hydrofluoric acid (HF).
