Punch verse Hydrox

November 7 2011 at 10:37 PM

I used to use all encap punch all the time until the hydrox came out and i have been using that since. I use it for residential cleaning with the bonnet pad system. My question for someone is one better than than the other??

Wouldn't say that one is better than the other. They're just built for different purposes.

As an overall pre-spray, Encap-Punch is a great product. It can tackle most soils loads. And since it is a serious encap product that truly crystallizes very well, it doesn't need rinsing! Encap-HydrOx is more specialized for where there are organic soils or browning. That's not to say that Encap-HydrOx won't work on a wider range of soils - it will; but its target is organic soil. Encap-HydrOx is packed with a very active hydrogen peroxide formulation so it is a serious player for browning and any type of organic based soil conditions.

You might want to watch the videos on the bottom of each respective page for a broader explanation...
