ASTRO MAX #1 is a low to no-foam maximum strength concentrate for use as a degreaser and carbon remover. ASTRO MAX #1 is low foaming for top performance in circulation, boilout, and soak applications. Removes carbonized grease residue, smoke deposits, burned on food soils, fats, oils and greases from food processing equipment.
ASTRO MAX #1 penetrates rapidly and works fast to soften and suspend soil so that it can be easily rinsed away. Use as a degreaser or carbon remover for food cooking or smoking equipment, utensils, or other associated surfaces in official establishments operating under the Federal meat, poultry, shell egg grading, and egg products inspection programs. Low foam makes rinsing very easy and complete resulting in a nice sheeting action when rinsed and with shorter drying times. May also be used as a rust remover and paint stripper.
