Was going to say, I use TFR as a degreaser quite a lot on some of my kit, never tried it on the RIB yet, but always wanted to know, does it come in different grades, or is TFR just TFR ?

As people will know from my previous posts from the Valet that was done at Ribshop and using Rib Revive and the 3M stuff I can still vouch for the 3M product and rib revive combo. My rib has now been used a fair few times, always washed off and the boat still looks like new and the water beads much like it would off a ducks back!! Cheers :-)

TFR or Pwa as its also called does come in different grades . the general stuff is usually very powerful dulls paint and streaks alloy etc .
however Wurth sell a higher gade ,higher cost , that seems to clean even better without the damaging effects its called BMF cleaner .

the blurb reads
Environmentally harmless
Biodegradable
High degreasing capacity
will not damage rubber laquer and plastic
Self emulatingieseperates oil within the water .

Machine Mart sell the stuff as a premix or neat - I find the premix a bit too dilute - I use a 50:50 mix with water. The best thing to apply it with is a soft nylon brush - Tesco do some nice ones also great for alloy wheels.

Sorry its called by so many names as to who or what its used for .

PWA =pressure washer aditive

TFR traffic film remover

truck wash

etc etc

then i guess certain marketers have re named it, re coloured it re packaged it and mixed in other chemicals to suit a specific use .

there is Muck Off for bikers at silly prices dyed pink and in posher bottles

Truck wash dyed green in big containers for truckers and the motor trade

Patio cleaner for muppets who shop at Q it all stores

Tfr

This is the best I've used and swear by it. It can be used in various dilutions for all manner of household uses. I've tried others, concentrates etc. and not been as impressed. Beware of using it neat.
