New Product - Hang Ten - 12.5% bleach additive
Permalink  
 


We have a new product "Hang Ten". It was designed to thicken and aid in extending the contact time of 12.5% sodium hypochlorite when used for roof cleaning. Added to bleach or your bleach solution at the recommended rate this product will allow your mix to hold on at even high degree pitch angles of roofs and eves. It will not reduce bleach stability or thin out over time.

Hang Ten will rinse free at low flow rates with cold water but will take a little longer than when not using  the product.

 

The active ingredient is Safe and Bio-degradable and is used in many shampoos on the market today. Contains added penetrating surfactants to accelerate bleach cleaning, so additional cleaners are not needed unless surface is severely dirty. Hang Ten can be used with our Citrus X-terior if desired.

 

Use at a rate of 1 quart per 5 gallons of 12.5% bleach or bleach mix. Sold in gallons, cases of 4/1 gallons and 5 gallon drums. Costs are $30/gal, $110/case and $130/5 gallon.

 

For those going to PWNA we will have show special pricing with UPS shipping for orders taken and paid for at the show.

Did I get that right? $30/gal which will yield 20 gallons of roof mix? So if you need 60 gallons of roof mix, the indicated amount of Hang Ten will cost $43.34 plus shipping when you buy in bulk?

Most contractors will not need this all the time, just when the roof pitch is too steep for a normal mix to stay long enough which causes you to have to repeatedly re-wet the area with chemical. And when a roof is so high up that you do not want to be on ladders or on the roof itself.
5 Gallons, 20 quarts, which will treat 100 gallons. That runs $130 which works out $1.3 /treated gal plus shipping, if needed at this thickness. Some may find they will use less than a quart. This is just our starting point. Some may need more if their equipment adds a lot of water to the mix as it is applied. It was tested mixed into straight 12.5% bleach (no dilution) to be sure it was stable. And it was tested when mixed with our Citrus X-terior straight and into what we would call a normal roof mix: 1 gallon Citrus X, 1 gallon 12.5% bleach and 3 gallons water to make 5 galons of solution with no further dilution. We tested it spraying it out of hand help pump up sprayer. We unfortunitly do not have accress to an X-jet. I do have a local contractor that is giong to do some testing for us with her X-jet equipment but that has not happened yet. I was just trying to get this finished before going off to the PWNA next week. I hope that helps. Will you be at the PWNA?

 Art, I believe his instructions are to mix 1 quart directly to 5 gallons of undiluted 12.5% SH. And then mix your SH with water as normal. Just a little different way of mixing than we're used to.

When I apply that to my recipe, it still works out to $22.75 plus shipping for 60 gallons. I mean no disrespect, but that's still too expensive for us.

I can understand where it may be expensive for everyday use. But for the situations we had been asked by roof cleaners to solve, to keep a bleach solution on steep pitch roofs long enough for the chemicals to work so they do not use multiple repeat application of solution, that is what this acomplishes. Making it unecessary to poar 3-4 times as much chemical as normally needed, keeping technicians off high ladders or steep roofs. For those reasons we feel this asked for solution will be needed and used by some roof cleaning contractors. Unfortunitly the best solutions are not always the cheapest.

 That is High Linda, right now it cost me maybe 7.00 per 50 gallon mix and I can use on steep tile with no problems  very little run off

That's fine. I am glad you have a mix that works for you.

We asked contractors of all kinds at the Tampa NCE and other shows what kind of product, that they do not have now, that they would like and the one we heard the most that they wanted something thicker that could keep their mix solution on a surface. For roof contractors it was for a steep pitch roofs, for kitchen exhaust guys it is for vertical hood vents.

For the roofers we came up with "Hang Ten". For the exhaust cleaners it is with a different chemical mix in a product we are calling "Hood Cling". These are two totally different chemicals due to the make up of the chemicals they interact with, sodium hypochlorite vs. alkiline hood cleaners. Unfortuitly the ingredient cost of these chemicals are not inexpensive, like the simple raw ingredient sodium hypochlorite, I wish they were. We can only try to solve a discribed problem for a resonable cost. Time will only tell wether or not the solution is worth the cost of the problem and will be a viable product. We may find that there is not a market for these products but we call only try to give customers what they ask for and need at a price that we can afford to offer them.

If you are coming to the PWNA this week, please stop by and say hello.

Hi Linda!! Your Citris-x-terior worked well in our tests. We used 1gallon per 65 gallon mix on 2 roofs. I will send you the results this weekend.

Thank you for the update Bill.

If you ever get steep pitched roofs you can also add the Hang Ten to a Citrus X-terior mix, we tested that as well to allow the solution to stay longer on the shingles before rinsing.

Will you be at the PWNA this week? Come get another free water bottle.
