As we are sure you are aware, new legislation regarding CLP compliant labelled products came into force in 2009 and a secondary phrase in 2015. We are now nearing the date where the final phase comes in, which is compulsory and it will become illegal to sell such old style labelled products from 1st June 2017.
The Rozone Smartwasher is our unique parts cleaning system that is both self-cleaning and non-hazardous. Many different businesses have benefitted from its safe to use and effective design.
Sam Humpheson, who is the owner of Look Mum No Hands, a combination of a café and one of the most reputable bike workshops in London, has been using the Smartwasher ever since the company was founded in 2010. So far, he has loved the product and has given us the following testimonial.
"When we opened in 2010 I knew that we needed a parts washer but did not want the smell, expense or disruption of a traditional solvent-based system.
Rozone have proven to be the solution to these problems with their low impact, environmentally sound Smartwasher.
Our Smartwasher has been hammered every day for 7 years and is still producing great results, needing nothing more than a fresh filter every month and a little topping up of fluid every now and then.
I couldn't imagine using any other system, and it is a nice bonus that the team at Rozone have been an absolute pleasure to deal with."
The Smartwasher has 3 essential components; the parts cleaning machine; powerful water based degreasing solution (Ozzy Juice) and microbe impregnated mat (Ozzy Filter). The combination of these 3 components, creates one of the most cost effective and thorough parts cleaning systems on the market.
Thank you Sam - you have also been a pleasure to work with.

We talk about our duct-tech solution a lot. But you don’t need to take our word for it, here is proof of just some of the amazing results our customers have been getting from the duct-tech range of products.
We recently tested our duct-tech power clean and duct-tech gel for a kitchen canopy and duct clean. The product previously used by our customer is classed as a corrosive which means it can be harmful to users. Our product on the other hand is an irritant which means it is much friendlier to use.
As shown in the pictures below the duct-tech worked very effectively. The customer even mentioned that he noticed significant improvements from the original product. The team also found it more pleasant to work with, with a far less aggressive odour. In terms of the clean, a particular difference was seen with the reduction of white marks left after cleaning the canopy, which is a result of Rozone products being less caustic.
The customers were particularly impressed with the duct-tech gel, which comes in a sprayable gel that sticks to surfaces, ensuring that grease is removed with ease.

From 1st September 2016, Rozone will be working in partnership with Edge Equipment Hire in the supply of chemicals, solutions, sanitising, cleaning and deodorising products designed for the UK damage restoration marketplace. Rozone will work alongside Edge Equipment Hire as their official chemical supplier to the water & fire damage restoration industry.
Mike Folkes, Head of Chemicals at Rozone, says: “We are delighted to be working with Edge; I see great synergy and dedication to the damage restoration market from both companies. As well as Edge supplying a comprehensive range of equipment, customers will now also have easy access to the Rozone Range from the five Edge branches and normal delivery channels.
“As a leading damage restoration chemical company, this is an ideal partnership working with one of the leading equipment hire companies in the business, working together to improve standards across the industry.”
Paul Brown, Commercial Director at Edge Equipment Hire, says: “We are very much looking forward to working closely with Rozone and supporting the restoration industry further with their chemical and solution requirements alongside their specialist drying equipment. This is an ideal partnership as we provide the very latest in drying technology to the industry, and they have an excellent range of chemicals and solutions for the tough jobs our customers face – and they provide excellent advantages for the technicians and the environment.”
Rozone develops cleaning products and technologies which provide the best possible combination of sustainability and performance. Specialising in solving problems that have traditionally been the preserve of potentially hazardous chemicals products, Rozone replaces these wherever possible with water-based or safer solvent-based solutions, assisting with the protection and wellbeing of users whilst offering environmental benefits to the organisations using them.
Edge is a dedicated and specialist equipment hire company catering for the needs of the professional damage restorer or through supporting flood and fire restoration companies.
Last week we put two of our products to the test in a commercial kitchen at the Northamptonshire Police Headquarters. The products under the spot light were; The Duct-Tech Power Clean (DPTC) via foamer and the Duct-Tech Gel (DTG) via jet sprayer. Both of which are from our Duct-Tech range which offer a non-toxic, non-corrosive and pH neutral alternative to harmful chemicals usually used for heavy duty cleaning.
Firstly, the products were tested on fryers. We found that for softer grease DPTC worked very effectively, but for harder grease DTG worked better. Both of the Rozone products produced better results than Blast and are considerably safer to use due to the none caustic and pH neutral nature of the products.
The products were then tested on a commercial oven. Similar to earlier results the DTPC was very effective on softer grease. DTPC foams allows the product to cut through and absorb the grease, where it remains suspended until wiped off. For the harder grease on the doors and the canopy both inside and out DTG was effectively used. The team unanimously agreed this product cut through the grease quickly and easily.
At the end of the commercial clean, the customers noticed a significant reduction in chemical odours or what they described as “the stuff that hits the back of your throat”, and still produced the high quality results expected from a deep clean.

The Smartwasher® could be the most profitable tool in your workshop
It makes our job much easier because we can clean a whole bike twice as fast as our previous spray and rag method. We wouldn’t be without it!
Dan Murtagh, Rutland Cycling, Whitwell
The Rozone Smartwasher® has been an incredible benefit for our DIY workshop
Students are able to clean their chains in less than 2 minutes flat, and they marvel at how fast and clean their parts become. It’s so easy to use and the fact that it’s environmentally friendly is the icing on the cake. I don’t see why every bike shop doesn’t have one!
Jenni Gwiazdowski, London Bike Kitchen
“Every quarter, the Rozone team visits our Cleaning House, the HQ training facility, and trains our technicians. This is inclusive within their service to ensure that we are getting the very best out of the Rozone products and technologies that we use. Nobody else works with us in this way.
“The technicians really appreciate the time given to them and they like working with Rozone’s products as they are formulated with the user in mind, whilst balancing performance and sustainability."
Ron Rookledge, Technical Support Manager, Rainbow
“I have worked with Rozone for many years. They provide an effective solution which supports the operation of our business. In addition, Rozone supports some of the more technically challenging situations we are faced with by giving direct industry support as well as chemical and microbiological support.
“This can result in large savings for our insurance customers. For example, with the expert advice we receive from Rozone, we are able to support the insurance companies with invalid claims. On one job alone we were able to save the insurance companies significant funds by using the expert microbiological advice from Rozone.”
Steve Rowen, National Operations Manager, Polygon

We have full confidence that the products supplied by Rozone allow us to undertake decontamination and restoration works to a highest possible level, a key service for us is the ability to tailor any product to the needs of the project they are to be applied to.

"I have worked with Rozone for a number of years and they have always supported us and recommended product to use in different situations, their technical knowledge is great and they offer support when needed. We have used many of their products and in particular the “Res Restore Clean” a light/medium pH neutral surface cleaner that dries quickly and leaves a great finish, this is a great all round cleaner that has adjustable dilution rates to take on anything from dust to a fire, as the product is diluted this saves us thousands of pounds per annum."
Paul Newland, General Manager, Relko Cleaning and Support Services Ltd
"Over the years I have worked very closely with Rozone by adapting and developing chemicals and equipment to suit best practice and environmental requirements, whilst also taking part in delivering training in the field and in the classroom."
Steve Harsant, Group Training Manager, Polygon
Increased efficiency: Having the Rozone Smartwasher® has increased efficiency in our workshop, allowing us to triple our servicing output on a daily basis.
