Deb Launches Powerful Line Of Heavy-Duty Automotive Hand Cleaners

KrestoCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Deb Group has introduced a complete line of heavy-duty hand cleaners designed specifically for the automotive aftermarket industry. KrestoGT offers advanced and powerful products formulated to protect, clean and restore technicians’ hard working hands.

KrestoGT  heavy-duty hand cleaner contains all-natural, biodegradable scrubbers with no harsh solvents or sharp scrubber materials — keeping even the grimiest hands not only clean, but healthy and productive as well.

The issue of occupational dermatitis (acute skin problems caused by exposure to harsh chemicals) is specifically pressing in the automotive environment, where workers rely on their hands and often cannot wear personal protective equipment like gloves. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 40 percent of workers will suffer from occupational dermatitis at some point in their working life. In addition, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that roughly 50 percent of all working time lost to industrial illness is due to dermatitis, which can result in an average of two months away from work. This can have a huge impact on shop productivity and profitability.

“The Automotive industry is flooded with a multitude of low quality hand cleaners,” said Michael Bogdanski, CEO of Deb in North America. “These cleaners are often formulated with heavy and dangerous solvents like petroleum distillates and harsh scrubbing particles like pumice that may severely irritate and damage the skin. Additionally, some service repair professionals use technical solvents like thinners or even kerosene to remove tough materials from their hands, which not only break down the skin, but contain toxins that can be harmful to the body. The new KrestoGT range features heavy-duty hand cleaning products that are free of petroleum distillates, contain skin-friendly scrubbers and VOC compliant ingredients. As such KrestoGT products are extremely effective and safe for cleaning and protecting workers’ hands.”

Developed with the advanced technical expertise from Deb who market the familiar and best-selling products such as Kresto, GrittyFOAM and Travabon; the new  KrestoGT line will offer high-performance skin care products for the automotive industry at a great value, the company says. New products include KrestoGT Orange Boost and KrestoGT Cherry Turbo. These formulations are available in gallon, half-gallon, 2 liter cartridge and wipe formats that address the removal of a broad range of automotive contaminants. KrestoGT Paint Shop is an advanced formulation specifically designed to remove extra tough soils such as paint, tar and adhesives.

The KrestoGT line of products will be available for purchase beginning January 2015. Visit www.KrestoGT.com to find out more about the product line and other market relevant information.
