The Science



Cataclean contains solvents that can break down deposits formed by oxidation and polymerization of hydrocarbon in fuel delivery systems.  Cataclean also includes acetone which is known to improve the efficiency of fuel combustion.  Acetone has been used in race cars to enhance octane rating and make fuel burn more evenly and completely.

When Cataclean combusts, carboxylic acids, aldehydes and active peroxy compounds are formed.  These compounds in the exhaust vapours work to clean the surfaces inside the converter.  The result is the removal of deposits from the surface of the core, which increases the catalyst's ability to remove harmful exhaust emissions such as carbon monoxide & nitrogen oxides.  Cataclean does not alter fuel composition.

Cataclean is safe for all petrol, diesel and hybrid engines.




How Cataclean works in the Catalytic converter

The build up of deposits in the catalytic converter limits flow and inturn reduces engine power and efficiency.

Cataclean combines with the exhaust gases through the catalytic converter and its compounds break down the build up of carbon deposits.

"The RAC has long known the benefits of CatacleanŽ products. Equipping our patrols with CatacleanŽ Diesel therefore seemed like a natural
extension of our existing relationship as it helps to solve a frustrating DPF problem for motorists." Phil Ryan, Technical Director, RAC
