Customer Experience

National Paint and Coating Manufacturer

Sometime in the morning at a commercial store branch of a large National Paint and Coating Manufacturer in the USA, a paint spill occurred. A five-gallon tub of acrylic paint was knocked over while a delivery truck was being unloaded. Even after the workers’ quick response, at least a half-gallon of beige paint was spilled onto the cement driveway.

Having seen SpillFix in action before, the Branch Manager quickly utilised SpillFix granular absorbent to deal with the spill. The spill was cleaned up in a matter of minutes. They sprayed the stained concrete with a little Simple Green to loosen the drying acrylic paint, then used a second application of SpillFix to clean it completely. Every bit of stain color was removed from the concrete – Everyone was astonished.
