When you really begin to get into detailing, you will find yourself needing to make up diluted solutions of various cleaning products on a regular basis. The Atomiza Generic Bottle is ideal for this task, and can be fitted with either an Atomiza Standard Spray Head or an Atomiza Chemical Resistant Spray Head, depending on the aggressiveness of the product being used.
The Atomiza Generic Bottle is made out of translucent high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and will thus tolerate long-term exposure to even the most chemically-aggressive cleaning products we sell. Temporary labels can either be stuck on (3M High Performance Masking Tape is surprisingly useful in this respect!), or written on using a permanent marker pen.
Making up diluted solutions is relatively straightforward, but it is worth noting that confusion can arise from differences in the way that car care product manufacturers quote dilution ratios. Strictly speaking, dilution ratios should be quoted as the number of parts of original chemical in the total number of parts of diluted solution. Accordingly, a dilution ratio of 1:10 would be achieved by making up a solution containing one part neat chemical and nine parts water, i.e. ten parts in total (giving a dilution ratio of one in ten). However, it is far more common for manufacturers to quote dilution ratios in parts dilutant to parts original chemical. Accordingly, a dilution ratio of 10:1 would be achieved by making up a solution containing ten parts water and one part neat chemical, i.e. eleven parts in total (giving a dilution ratio of ten to one). Compared to the strict definition, this produces a slightly weaker solution, and for this reason we recommend that this latter interpretation is adopted whenever doubt about the ratio arises, as it is far safer to work with a solution that is too weak rather than one that is too strong.
