New Providence, New Jersey - Chemetall Oakite, a leader and innovator in surface treatment chemistries, presents Oakite® Barrell Kleen Safe. This organic product is a safe alternative to the use of hazardous concrete cleaning formulations . Said Julia Murray, Vice-President of Technical Marketing, "Our customers were looking for a substitute for traditional acidic concrete and cement cleaners. Chemetall Oakite's response is this exceptional new product.
