Key metrics

72.8% DROP


To minimize cost and inventory this carwash wanted to replace its two-component touchless chemical with a single product. The new product had to be high foaming (show) and clean all vehicle surfaces. To eliminate customer complaints, no road film or residue could remain, especially on chrome, windshields, and black vehicles.


Guardian Chemicals replaced the competitor’s two-part product with a single product: NuTech Grand Slam. Prior to replacement, the volume of the competitor’s product used per vehicle was measured to compare cost per wash and determine success.


Effective Cleaning of all Vehicle Surfaces

NuTech Grand Slam effectively cleaned all vehicle surfaces eliminating the need for two-products. Difficult to clean road film was removed from all surfaces, including windshields, chrome, and black paint.

Reduced Cost per Wash

Although the cost per container was higher, by switching to NuTech Grand Slam this customer reduced their cost per wash by 72.8%. NuTech Grand Slam is more concentrated, resulting in cost savings and reduced chemical consumption.

One-Product Solution

This customer reduced their chemical inventory to a single product for their touchless and wand wash operations.
