An innovative, easy-to-clean concept with hydrophilic protective layers formed by functional collagen peptides on cleaned surfaces, has been successfully employed in professional vehicle cleaning applications. This has allowed for the reformulation of cleaners to less alkaline and more environmentally friendly conditions. In addition to improved cleaning results, extended cleaning cycles and reduced water consumption are well documented benefits. Meanwhile these protein protection layers are also finding use in hard-surface cleaners.
