If you are looking for an easy, effective and safe tfr or the best way to wash your vehicle, then you have arrived in the right place. We offer one of the best car care traffic film remover (TFR) products that will give your car a brand-new look without damaging its paint work.

A Powerful Chemical Cleaner

A traffic film remover, also known as a TFR, is a type of powerful chemical cleaner that's used directly on the body of vehicles for cleaning purposes. You can use it with a snow foaming bottle through high power pressure cleaners.

Typically, traffic film remover is a unique concentration of different chemicals which work in combination to achieve a sole purpose — make it ten times easier to remove grime and dirt from the surface of your car. Here at JennyChem, our TRF cleaner is powerful enough to make the dirt removal process even more comfortable for you.

The most significant benefit of using a traffic film remover is that it's way stronger than snow foam, car shampoos, wax, or pH neutral washes. It is one of the best ways to sanitise and clean, especially for farm, supermarket, and catering vehicles. It provides sterilised and clean surfaces by removing gunk and other foreign materials.

Traffic Film Removers - Best Vehicle Pre-Wash

We offer two different types of traffic film remover to serve our customers best with their pre-wash. It doesn't matter if you have cars with a lot of aluminium work or if they need heavy-duty degreasing work. Using our traffic film remover snow foam will provide your vehicle with a brand-new look.

Caustic Based TFR

The caustic based traffic film remover tfr in the range is specifically designed for heavy duty degreasing and cleaning. It is best for industrial fleet vehicles, people who travel a lot, and off-road vehicles. It removes thick gunk, grime, and dirt efficiently and quickly, even from the clutch and engine compartment that tend to hold built-up grease.

Some of the caustic based TFR is available on the market also damage or dull the paint of your car. We only use the branded and high-end materials in our caustic based traffic film remover to ensure that it doesn't damage your vehicle's paintwork. We also advise our respective customers to get an extra wax layer applied to their vehicles for more protection after getting the vehicle washed with caustic based traffic film remover.

Non-Caustic Based TFR

Our special non-caustic TFR is made to achieve the same purpose and performance. It's even safer to use because it doesn't strip wax away from your vehicle like other products available on the market do. Our non-caustic based Traffic Film Remover TFR has a high pH value but comparatively lower than caustic based traffic film removers. We recommend our customers who are particular about their vehicle or have tanker vehicles that contain more aluminium to opt for non-caustic film remover TFR fluid. If you are a DIY enthusiast, then you can easily buy a 5-litre bottle or more than five litres of non-caustic TFR to wash your vehicle at home. Using it daily or weekly doesn't harm your vehicle's paint and provides a streak-free shine every time.

Traffic Film Remover Basic Steps

There are many ways to use traffic film removers to remove your road grime for car cleaning or truck washing, but the easiest and most common way is using it with a pump sprayer.

For the best results, here are the steps listed below:

  • Spray on the car surface as a pre wash
  • Let it sit
  • Rinse very thoroughly with water until the gunk falls away. Pay extra attention to any stubborn area's.
  • Make sure you wash a TFR off your car straight away, as it can stain and damage the paint if it’s left to dry.
  • Rewash and Review the body with normal vehicle shampoo
  • Rinse again with water
  • Dry using our Microfibre towels
  • Use our Car Care products to dress and seal your paint work
If you don't have a pump spray kit, consider buying one if you're more of a DIY person. Additionally, using film remover traffic film remover without the necessary precautions can leave some damaging and unwanted results. The following tips will help you to avoid all the potential damages:
  • Never use traffic film remover if the vehicle is in direct sunlight and warm; the surface of the vehicle mustn't be hot
  • Wear recommended glasses and gloves to protect your eyes and skin
  • Test the product on the most sensitive areas such as soft top, wheels, unpainted trim
  • Rinse thoroughly and use normal vehicle shampoo afterwards
  • Traffic Film Remover should be used infrequently - once every few months

With our extensive experience using TRF chemicals, we find it’s advisable to leave the solution on your vehicle for 3-6 minutes before the rinsing process. If you’re looking to go the extra mile, try agitating the TRF cleaner with a wash brush.

Rinsing traffic film remover is more efficient when you use water at high-pressure. That’s not to say you’re utterly helpless without a pressure washer. It’s possible to do the job effectively with an everyday bucket and washer. However, you have to be deliberate about rinsing well.

A TRF cleaner can have a high alkaline concentration. In light of that, it’s hugely important to use protective goggles while using it. If you’ll be working in an enclosed area, better to double up with a protective face mask. This way, you can avoid splash back and inhalation.

For instance, if TRF chemical splashes on a bruise, it will sting. However, there’s no reason to worry about severe side effects. Many auto care experts use traffic film remover with zero side effects. As long as you take proper precautions, you’re good to go!

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some common questions about using traffic film remover:

What is Traffic Film Remover?

By definition, traffic film remover is a specially formulated cleaning product targeting road grime and dirt. This cleaning product can aid the smooth removal of grime without damaging your car’s paint and mechanical components.

If we’re taking the science route, TRF cleaner is a unique blend of ionic surfactants, a chelating agent, and cleaning agents with an alkaline pH rating. Sodium Hydroxide and Sodium Metasilicate are the more common cleaning agents.

Sometimes, traffic film remover may contain anti-watering chemicals or wax. This has no bearing on the product’s efficacy. It only makes it easier to rinse off the product.

What is Traffic Film Remover Used for?

Traffic film remover is useful for removing dirt, grime and oil from the surface of a vehicle. Its effective cleaning action can be used on caravans, walls, aeroplanes, and tarpaulin material. However, speak to a professional before using TRF chemicals on any surface that’s not a car.

How to Use Traffic Film Remover?

Using traffic film remover on your vehicle follows a simple 4-step process. Start by spraying on the surface of your car. Then, leave it on for a few minutes. Rinse well before washing the area with a regular car wash solution. Be sure to wash off all residue while carrying out the final step.

There’s a pre-step that can save you a lot of stress. It involves testing out the TRF on a small area before you start using it. This way, you can be 100% sure the solution is compatible with your vehicle’s paint and material.

How Do You Mix Traffic Film Remover? (TFR Dilution Ratio)

It’s hard to put a finger on the best way to dilute traffic film remover. Typically, the best TRF dilution ratio is a function of several factors. The first one is the concentration of the TRF cleaner.

There are TRF cleaners out there with a less than 10% concentration. However, JennyChem TRF ultra has a concentration of more than 20%.

The right dilution ratio is also a function of the degree of grime to be removed. Mostly, if you are working with a 20% concentrated TRF chemical, dilute the solution in a ratio of 1:4. Then, set your pressure washer to a value of 2% if you’re dealing with everyday grime. However, if the degree of soilage is worse, set the dial for 4%.

Is TFR a Degreaser?

Traffic film remover is more than just a grime remover. It can also work as a degreasing agent for all types of car paints. Basically, the chemicals contained within the product are designed to attack oil, grease and wax. How well it does the job of removing grease is a function of the dilution ratio.

Is TFR pH Neutral?

Traffic film remover can be PH-neutral or alkaline. The PH-neutral variant usually contains citric acid. They are also wax-safe. This means they will remove dirt and grime without affecting wax on your car’s paint. On the other hand, alkaline traffic film remover has a stronger effect and will affect wax.

Does TFR Remove Tar?

Yes, it does. The TRF chemical is hugely effective at getting rid of dirt and grime on your car — regardless of how messy the situation is. In addition to tar, traffic film remover also works on oil and grease.

What's the Difference between Caustic TFR Cleaner and Non-Caustic Cleaner?

The significant difference between caustic and non-caustic cleaner is in the cleaning agent. Typically, caustic TRF is composed of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda). This is the TRF chemical responsible for its alkalinity and its more powerful cleaning property.

In fact, the more caustic soda present in the solution, the stronger it is. This means it cleans super fast and requires less effort to remove grime. However, there’s a slight downside to using caustic TRF cleaner. There’s a possibility that it can affect specific paintwork. You want to do a test patch before you start using it on your vehicle.

Here’s where a non-caustic TRF cleaner is useful. If the caustic product is not compatible with your vehicle, a non-caustic product will do the job just as well. It has sodium metasilicate as the cleaning agent instead of sodium hydroxide.

Sodium metasilicate is a far less aggressive cleaning agent. When used in the correct concentration, it won’t affect paintwork, glass, galvanised and aluminium surfaces.

Our Recommendation

If you use your vehicle for any type of industrial use, then our caustic based traffic film removeris what you need. If you own a family vehicle, then consider buying our non-caustic based TFRfor ensured safety.
