GEM can be used from 1-4% by weight of bath for complete removal of soils. The temperature of the bath should be at least 140-190o F to help activate the surfactants and to prevent foaming. If severe foaming occurs, the addition of Defoamer WTC-10 or Defoamer ML will eliminate the problem.

The above recommended usage levels may differ, depending on the application.
