This method of industrial laundering is commonly used to remove heavy soil with a combination of higher water temperature (160°F max) and harsher chemistry; pH should be held to 11.5 max. More aggressive wash formulas may be necessary to remove heavy soils but may result in accelerated color loss, deterioration in performance of retroreflective trim and overall reduced garment service life.
This new method of industrial laundering is specifically used for garments with Red Kap’s exclusive OilBlok Technology finish. Water temperatures of 140°F or less with a max temp of 150°F and cleaning agency with moderate pH (9.0 max) are used to remove heavy soil without negatively affecting the finish. As with Heavy Soil Industrial Laundering, accelerated fading, increased shrinkage and reduced service life may occur.
This less aggressive industrial laundering process is commonly used on uniforms which are lightly soiled or made of fabrics that are not designed to withstand higher wash temperatures or harsher chemistry. In a typical light soil formula, water temperatures are usually held to a maximum of 140°F and pH to 10.5 max.
A laundering process normally defined as washing in a residential type top- or front-loading unit followed by tumble drying. Detergents used in this process are formulated for home use and are readily available on the consumer market.
