– Extended Coverage – Fluoropolymer, Water Based Carpet &
• Concentrated Fluoropolymer water based formula, which bonds
tenaciously to the fiber – even through several cleaning cycles. Wet
and Dry protection in the high 90-percentile range. “Notable oil,
soil, alcohol and water resistance. Will withstand numerous
cleanings and is quite resistant to abrasion.” Extended coverage is
attained by applying it correctly. Safe to use on ALL fabrics not
harmed by water. Ready-To-Use and applies as easily as solvent
• Coverages: Carpet - Low Pile Commercial - Up to 2000 SF per Gallon
Thick Pile Residential - 1000 to 1200 SF per Gallon
Average Coverage – 1200 to 1500 SF per Gallon
Furniture - Couch 16 Oz. to 24 Oz. depending upon fabric
Chair 8 Oz. to 12 Oz. depending upon fabric
• The application of Soil-Blocker to any fabric is the critical step
in controlling re-wetting, and decreasing the drying time
dramatically from other water based protectors which tend to
excessively re-wet fabric. You apply only 2/3 of a gallon of Soil
Blocker to 1000 SF. With competitor’s products, you may apply as
much as 5 gallons to 1000 SF. A power sprayer is the preferred
application device. A minimum of 30 lbs. of sustained pressure
through a number 8001 T-jet tip should be used. Pre-measuring the
correct amount for every job will maintain accuracy, quality, and
lower drying times.
• Chance for Color Bleeding? - ALWAYS pretest first, in particular
with furniture fabrics.
• Drying times will vary depending upon the cleaning method used,
and the skill of the technician in leaving the fabric as dry as
possible during the cleaning process. Outside weather conditions,
and indoor humidity conditions will also play a part in drying
times. Airflow should be accelerated by running the furnace fan.
Most fabrics should be “touch dry” within 1 – 2 hours under “normal”
conditions. This time frame will ordinarily satisfy most customers.
IF DRYING TIMES ARE A CRITICAL ISSUE FOR YOUR CUSTOMER, we highly
recommend that you use HBCC’s Solvent Based Protector, which will
speed the drying time significantly.
• “It Smells So Clean” is a common exclamation of customers because
they have been taught by the laundry soap manufacturers to equate
fragrance with cleanliness. The judicious use of fragrance enhances
your ability to please the customer – and, separates you from the
pack. Soil-Blocker is offered with 7 great fragrances:
Vanilla-Coconut, Ginger Snap, Razzberry, Lemon, Orange, Peach, and
Melon. We recognize that many customers may prefer NO fragrance, and
Soil Blocker is available unfragranced for fragrance sensitive
• Soil-Blocker has a shelf life of up to 2 years depending upon
storage arrangements. Soil blocker is sensitive to extremes of both
heat and cold, so storage in your van, or a storage area needs to be
monitored for temperature extremes. We do not ship Soil blocker in
extreme cold temperature situations in winter months.
Hard Ball Chemical Company is extremely proud of Soil Blocker, which
has become our Number 1 product. Soil Blocker, like all of our
chemical line, is produced from the carpet cleaning mentality,
rather than the manufacturing mentality, and you – the end user, are
the primary beneficiary.
