Afrifix Degreaser

Eco-friendly bio-enzyme non-caustic cleaning and remediating product which converts tough to clean greases from organic fats and hydrocarbon oils into a permanently stable non-hazardous substance.

Green Cleaning Technology:

Billions of years ago Mother Nature had already solved the problem of how to keep the Earth clean, naturally. By using enzyme producing beneficial bacteria virtually any grease build up, stain, odour, septic system,  or FOG’s (fats, oils, greases) can be safely cleaned, bio-degraded and removed quicker and more cost effectively than traditional harmful chemicals.

Enzyme Cleaning Explained:

Afrifix Grease Shock microbes are so powerful that they quickly remove even the heaviest build-ups of fats, oil, grease and grime from the toughest industrial environments. AfriFix bacteria intelligently produce enzymes to digest practically any grease into water and carbon dioxide, in an ongoing and repeating process. AfriFix microbes are uniquely cultivated from South African soils giving them a massive home ground performance advantage. They are safe, non- pathogenic with no hazard potential.


Afrifix Grease Shock is an excellent eco-friendly multi-purpose hard surface cleaning and remediating product that irreversibly breaks down greases from organic fats and oils as well as greases from hydrocarbons, and converts them permanently to an inert state. Through a quick and natural and chemical reaction, Afrifix Grease Shock neutralizes these greases, fats and oils into a non-hazardous substance.


Environmentally Friendly:

Afrifix Grease Shock is a much safer option than harsh solvents or detergents, and is safe for use in food preparation areas and environmentally fragile areas. One of the raw materials present in Afrifix Grease Shock is considered as safe by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in washing mixtures for fruits and vegetables, in sanitizing solutions for food-contact surfaces and in boiler water (the above applications do not apply to Afri Grease Shock)

Using Soils To Clean Better:

The raw cleaning power provided by Afrifix Grease Shock converts fatty soils into readily dissolvable soaps, thus turning them into an extra free cleaning agent, which further contributes to the emulsification and removal of greases and oils. This extra cleaning power also neutralizes acid soils, while breaking down proteins and starches.


Proprietary Buffer Action:

Acidic greases significantly lower the pH of cleaning solutions to well below optimum levels for great results. Afrifix Grease Shock is an excellent buffer and the effect of acidic greases is nullified, keeping the solution at a constant pH over an extensive loading of acidic greases, ensuring its effectiveness in cleaning functions involving the conversion of greases and oils, and the suspension of particulate soils.


Science of Cleaner Surfaces:

Any effective cleaning process involves removing the soil from the surface, dispersing the soil in the solution and preventing re-deposition of the soil on the surface. Afrifix Grease Shock contains an optimum formulation for heavy duty cleaning which involves the removal of high loadings of fatty and oily soils and particulate soils. These grease and dirt deposits are scattered into small suspended particles that are easily rinsed away without re-depositing on freshly washed surfaces. Afrifix Grease Shock removes particulate soils by charging both the soil and the surface with negative charges. The soil is broken into fine particles, making them easier to remove and easier to suspend in the solution. The negative charge of Afrifix Grease Shock has an additive effect on the negative charge of the particulate soil. The repelling forces keep the particles apart and prevent them from agglomerating and forming larger particles.


Corrosion Inhibitor:

When metals, glass and ceramic surfaces are cleaned with Afrifix Grease Shock, a natural protective barrier is formed protecting against harsh detergent ingredients such as phosphates, synthetic detergents and other alkalis. The active ingredients in Afrifix Grease Shock are negatively charged and adsorb onto metal surfaces forming a thin corrosion inhibiting monomolecular film which inhibits corrosion. The film does not build on itself and will not form excessive scale. The film is an electrical insulator and blocks the electrochemical reactions of corrosion, yet is thin enough that it does not obstruct water flow.


Recommended Applications:

Directions For Use:

Afrifix Grease Shock should be sprayed directly onto the surface using a spray bottle or pressure sprayer ensuring full coverage. For the very heaviest grease and grime deposits, allow the product to first soak for 15 – 60 minutes. For extra effectiveness in kitchen applications, pre-heat the surface to the point that the surface is warm to the touch. The surface should not be so hot that any evaporation occurs. Keep the surface wet by re-applying as and when necessary. Thoroughly scrub or agitate with cleaning machines, or for best results use a high pressure water sprayer. Rinse clean.


Safety Precautions:

Wear Personal Protective Equipment (P.P.E.’s) at all times.
