Macjames® Multisurface Degreaser/Cleaner for multi-surface/multipurpose degreasing and cleaning of all washable surfaces.
Macjames® Multisurface Degreaser/Cleaner is an innovative and economical multisurface/multipurpose degreaser/cleaner with concentrated strength to clean organic and inorganic dirt from all washable surfaces. It is an emulsifying non-solvent and non-acidic based degreasing foaming surfactant cleaner. It emulsifies grease, oil, rust, heavy dirt, carbon deposits, grime, slag, sludge, mud, scales, others alike and cleanses them from the various washable surfaces (metal, plastic, wood, concrete, rubber, PVC, etc) without deforming them (substrates). It can be guided used in cleaning and washing of fabric, upholstery, leather, canvas, etc ,with a dilution of 1part to 5parts water (1:5), depending on level of soil. It was researched, developed and manufactured since acidic, petroleum distillates, solvent and solvent-based cleaners are found to be destructive and inefficient in most surfaces.
Macjames® Multisurface Degreaser/Cleaner was registered by NAFDAC (Reg. No.:02-8179L) on August 6,2013 and introduced into market in October 2013.
Macjames® Multisurface Degreaser/Cleaner is used in degreasing and cleaning machine parts, car engines, heat exchangers, workshop, machines, abattoirs, Silos, tanks, reservoirs, drilling and mining equipment, farming and construction equipment, marine and dredging equipment, oil rigs and superstructures, petrochemical and refineries, and other heavily soiled areas or equipment. It could be carefully used for rugs and upholstery, and thick fabrics cleaning at a dilution rate of 1:50 parts of water. It is applied on the substrate by hand brush, spray gun, or rag-cloth using hand gloves and goggles, and then washing or flushing with water thereby returning the soiled substrates' surfaces to its natural clean state.
1. Use on all washable surfaces.
2. Spray, apply with brush, or soak soiled surfaces and substrates.
3. Allow solution to penetrate for 1-5 minutes, depending on soil level.
4. Rinse or flush with clean water.
HEAVY GREASE AND SOIL: Use full strength concentration.
MEDIUM SOIL: Use 1:5 parts water to 1:10 parts water dilute solution.
LIGHT CLEANING: Use 1:10 parts water to 1:40 parts water dilute solution.
IN THE RIGHT DILUTION,POWER OR PRESSURE WASH CAN BE USED ON SURFACES AND INACCESSIBLE SOILED AREAS.
PRODUCTION AND RAW MATERIALS:
Macjames Multisurface degreaser/cleaner is produced using simple, cost-effective but effective environmentally friendly chemical ingredients, like Sodium lauryl Sulphate, Hypochlorite-5%, deodocylbenzene sulphonic acid, Sodium Hydroxide, among others.
A simple manual or motorized mixer can be used to do the production very easily by adding the chemical ingredients in appropriate sequential order. The chemical raw materials are readily available and cheap.
MARKET AND DEMAND
It has wide cleaning applications in auto, marine, oilfield, petrochemical and refineries, homes, farm, construction, dredging and others alike. Therefore the needs and demands in these areas make it to have a huge market.
Attached are product sample and car engine (example of substrate with different component materials) degreased and cleaned with Macjames® Multisurface degreaser/cleaner (before and after).

Our researches for over 10 years and other researches’ data have it that over 85 million Nigerians depend on borehole/well water for drinking, sanitation and hygiene uses due to lack of public pipe borne water.
Over 50 million of them battle with unsafe borehole/well water as alarmingly analyzed to contain pathogens, heavy metals ions, suspended particles and salts without getting safe water.
Some of them boil water at high costs and environmental pollution, use filters, alum, disinfectants (Waterguard, WaterCare or waterSafe, Hypo/Bleach, etc - (Sodium Hypochlorite based water disinfectants) which only disinfects the unsafe water.
Buy "treated" water or use combinations, but these solutions leave one or more of the discovered contaminants unattended.
THE PROBLEMS WE DISCOVERED
(1). Children under 5 years die in large numbers in Nigeria from waterborne diseases (typhoid fever, diarrhea, cholera, etc) caused by unsafe water and sanitation.
(2). A good number of adults also suffer from waterborne diseases (typhoid fever,
diarrhea, cholera, etc), and deaths by unsafe water and sanitation.
(3). Salt-activated high blood pressure/hypertension from constant drinking of
(4). High cost of laundry and shortened lifespan of clothes by use of hard and
(5). Skin problems.
(6). High medical bills from treatments of waterborne diseases.
WaterAid Nigeria (http://www.wateraid.org/ng) research shows that;
(A). "In Nigeria, around 45,000 children under five years old die every year from diarrhea
caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation"
(B). "57 million people in Nigeria do not have access to safe water"
(B). "Over 130 million people don't have access to adequate sanitation in Nigeria, two thirds of
Institute Water for Africa (https://www.water-for-africa.org/en/water.html) also states,
"At present, over 300 million people have no access to clean water in Africa, i.e. more than 40% the total population. Over 60% of the population have no access to sanitation. The growth of the population will increase the water consumption and water shortage will get worse."
In a bid to solve the above unsafe water problems found from my over 10 years experience, I researched, developed and manufactured this innovative solution, SaferEx - Multi-action Water Purifier.
