Ecolab introduces KAY
Super Contact Cleaner, the first super contact cleaner for the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry that clings to vertical and inverted surfaces for faster and easier removal of tough kitchen soils.
“Cleaning angled surfaces such as oven interiors and the inverted areas of grill and oven hoods is a consistent challenge for the foodservice industry,” said Jesse Whitehead, vice president of Marketing, Ecolab Global QSR. “KAY
QSR Super Contact Cleaner is versatile and can be used for effective pre-treatment or restorative cleaning.”
Build-up of soil on a food contact surface prevents proper sanitization and can increase the risk of foodborne illness. The longer-lasting cling of KAY QSR Super Contact Cleaner provides greater surface contact time, which helps increase the efficacy of the cleaner and helps reduce scrubbing and overall cleaning time, even on carbonized grease. The longer cling also helps prevent drips and run-off, reducing the amount of product required to properly clean an angled surface.
QSR Super Contact Cleaner is applied, it penetrates and breaks apart the soil, lifting it off the surface,” said Jeremy Finison, principal chemist for Ecolab Global QSR and a developer of the product. “After five to ten minutes, the soil can be easily wiped away with a sponge, cloth or paper towel.”
KAY QSR Super Contact Cleaner is safe to use on aluminum surfaces and does not require use of personal protection equipment (PPE). For more information, call (800) 529-5458 or visit
