Skywash Industrial exterior Drywash (Application Details)

Skywash is the world’s leading drywash for industrial buildings. Developed to clean buildings in locations with little or no water, the product is approved by every major airline manufacturer including Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell Douglas and AMS.

The product is applied by spraying directly onto the exterior of the building, and spread over the surface, it is safe to apply on all external surfaces including the acrylic glass.

The product has a dry time of a few seconds, or minutes, depending on temperature, and is then wiped off with a second cloth, leaving a surface that is both cleaned and waxed. You can then move onto the next section repeating the process until the building is completed. If for any reason the cleaning process has to be halted, you can leave the building at a suitable stage of cleanliness (such as leading edges completed) and return to finish at another time. The product can also be used in wet or dry conditions, you will simply use more cloths in wet weather as they become saturated.

The reduced set up time for cleaning a building, combines with the flexibility of a non-flammable product which can be used anywhere, allowing considerably improved flexibility in building cleaning options and reduces cleaning costs compared to the scheduling requirements, and equipment requirements for a wet wash.

Extended tests by among others Qantas Airlines have also demonstrated the improved fuel efficiencies achieved thanks to the layer of high gloss remaining on the surface reducing drag to allow 1.5% reduction in fuel consumption on their long-haul aircraft when drywashed with Skywash.

With increasing emphasis on water in general, and contaminated water disposal at airfields in particular, Skywash not only offers an environmental solution, it does so at a reduced cost when compared to traditional wet-wash methods.

For inquiries about demonstrations, including an Annual Value Package proposal to establish the yearly cost and environmental savings, please contact info@skywashintl.com and we will be pleased to develop a custom solution for your requirements including all the ancillary equipment you need to complete the work, such as; Doodlebug pads, Boeing approved cleaning cloths, long reach cleaning pads.
