The equipment used in the express wash is a hybrid system and is the most efficient equipment in the market. The hybrid system combines cloth with hi- pressure.
The car is first presoaked and a high-lubricity cleaning foam is sprayed on. Then gently-turning cylinders of continuously irrigated polishing cloth ribbons are rotated clock-wise and counter-clockwise at just the right distance from the car so that only the tips of the very wet, very soft cloth touch the car. The counter-rotation is crucial. The distance of the cylinders from the car is crucial (it is automatically adjusted by our system for the particular car). Once through the cylinder array, the car passes through irrigated curtains of the same polishing cloth ( which cleans the hood and top of the car), with foam strips on the wraps called the mitters which are drawn gently back and forth across the car’s foamed surfaces.Foam strips are a new material being used in the car wash. Foam is a very effective material because it is lightweight, high speed and will not damage the car. By the time the car has passed through the various applications , the cleaning foam has dwelled on the car’s surfaces for over a minute. The dwell time in combination with the cleaning solutions has washed your car clean.
The hi-pressure system of the hybrid wash uses recycled water to get to the areas that the cloth and foam doesn’t reach. We titrate our chemicals to get that maximum cleaning.Our wash is computerized and ran by the ICS tunnel master computer system which applies all the chemicals, including tire shine and rain x. This ensure the optimum wash for a min. price.
The process that Xpressshine Car Wash follows to make your car clean and sparkling is explained in detail below.
- Presoak: Is a high pressure detergent which effectively removes road soils in self service and cloth tunnel applications.The special surfactants and alkaline in this high foaming product aid in cleaning and drying. It all also has a fresh fragrance which adds to the appeal of the car.
- More Room for dwell time: The more time the soap, which is sprayed on the car at the beginning of the washing process, stays or “dwells” on the car, the more effective it is in loosening the dirt and residue from your car’s finish. Xpressshine’s conveyor is 125 feet long. That gives us lots of space for multiple Wet Friction applications during which the soap is allowed to dwell on the car’s surfaces. The shorter the conveyor, the less room there is for the application of whatever the friction medium to the soapy surfaces of the car, and the shorter is the dwell time that results.
- Wheel Shine: We use a unique cleaner which combines alkaline cleaners and solvency to effectively clean and safely remove soils and brake dust.
- Specially Formulated, Bio-Degradable, Non-Hazardous Cleaning Solutions
- Body Soaps: It’s a high foaming lubricating detergent which brightens chrome and auto glass. It helps neutralize alkalinity and accelerates the drying process.It provides excellent lubricity for the cloth and foam brush.
- Polishing: Its called as Trifoam as it applies three colours Red, Blue, Gold, on your car and has triple effect. Triple Foam is applied with a protectant formula that seals the microscopic irregularities in the car’s finish. This is a rich foaming conditioner for deep cleaning clearcoats.
- Sealers & Protectants: It’s a silicone fortified patented micro coating technology with UV protection. It helps combat the effects of sun,scid rain, salt and dirt on vehicle surfaces. We only use premium sealers for our customers.
- RainX: If you demand the best get the RainX complete surface protectant service , it gives the vehicle increased shine, better surface protection and water repellency for safer driving in poor weather. It is a complete protectant for multiple surfaces and is engineered to create a water repellant layer that chemically bonds to all exterior vehicle surfaces, including glass, paint, trim and plastics.After application of Rain X reactive polymer molecules are immediately attracted to vehicle surfaces where they bond and stick to the vehicle’s paint glass and trim. For better adhersion, longer lasting performance and enhanced protection. It also helps level out the microscopic surface irregularities on the surfaces of your vehicle to enhance shine and water beading.
- Tire Shine: We use Black Magic Tire shine which provides long-lasting, extremely high-gloss shine on tire surfaces. The formula is thick and able to adhere to tires better for a longer-lasting shine.
- Drying Agent : We use a concentrated drying agent which accelerates drying, so each and every car moving out of the tunnel should be completely dried and sparkling. The air dryer array is aimed so as to push the water down and off your car. And it uses enough air dryers to get the job done. Last But not the least, we don’t use brushes. We don’t use strong acid-based or alkali-based cleaning chemicals. We don’t rub the surface of your car with sponges or mitts. We don’t use high-powered water jets. We don’t rub the surface of your car with towels. In fact, we don’t rub your car or at all.We get your car really clean and dry without brushing it, blasting it, rubbing it, or putting harsh chemicals on it. We wash you car with biodegradable, high-lubricity foam and low pressure water . We dry your car with gravity and blown air.
