AltroClean 48W data sheet

AltroClean 48W™

Altro floor cleaner and maintainer

Part No. FC48W5L/FC48WIL

February 2015


AltroClean 48W is specially formulated to clean Altro rubber flooring and Altro smooth vinyl floorings. It may also be used for Altro safety flooring where these are not required to provide maximum slip resistance as AltroClean 48W contains a special wax and will reduce slip resistance.

Where slip resistance is important, AltroClean 44™ is the preferred cleaning agent. It is the responsibility of the building owner to assess the appropriate level of slip resistance in all areas.

Method of use - one

  4. Remove excess liquid then buff to a shine if desired.

Method of use - two

  1. Sweep the floor.
  2. Apply a fine spray of cleaner (dilution 1:40).
