Full strength
Use undiluted to remove grease, oil and other heavy contaminants from machinery, parts,
tools and equipment. Wet surface first with water for best results. Apply directly to surface to
be cleaned. Allow to penetrate for one minute or more. Rinse with cold water or wipe with
damp cloth or sponge. Heavy deposits may require scrubbing with a brush or sponge.
Repeat if necessary.

Best results are obtained when using warm water (+50°C) for dilution. After application rinse
with cold water. The suggested dilution ratios (e.g. 4:1 – add 4 parts water to 1 part CRC
Complex Blue) prepared below are guidelines. Every cleaning application will vary in the
amount of soil to be removed. It is suggested to try the lowest (most cost effective) ratio first.
If soil removal is not acceptable, repeat washing or increase the strength of the solution.
