The Lustra division of Cleaning Systems Inc. has added LustraShield with BDR to its Ultraflex product line. The sealant is a reformulation of the company’s LustraShield Total Surface Gloss with the addition of a brake dust repellent.
“It’s suitable for tunnel, in-bay automatic and self-serve, and can be applied as an overall sealant, wheel treatment or both in one step,” said Doug Marquis, Lustra vice president.
The formula’s polymers adhere to the wheel surface to form a protective layer that repels dirt and dust to keep the surface cleaner and, therefore, easier to clean, company officials said.
“We have known that there has been a need for a product that can make wheel maintenance easier and this offering gives carwash operators a competitive edge,” said Mark Brock, Lustra’s vice president of marketing.
