Releasit Encap-Basic | Low Cost Encapsulation Detergent

Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning Products 

Regardless of the ups and downs in the economy... At Releasit we're doing something about it. 

Releasit Encap-Basic is a low cost encapsulation detergent. Although it's a cost-effective product it still cleans deep. ENcap-Basic contains the same CRYSTALON3 encapsulation polymer found in the Releasit line of detergents.

Releasit Encap-Basic is ideal for commercial carpet maintenance. High-production / fast cleaning times can be achieved. Extremely low end-use cost. It can be used in commercial and residential applications. Dries to a crystallized residue. No rinsing is required. The non-sticky encapsulated residue will not attract more soil. Carpets stay clean longer than with traditional detergents. Safe for stain-resist, most wool, and all synthetic fibers. 

 Releasit Encap-Basic can be used in many applications: 

  • Cimex Machine
  • Rotary Machine / 175 rpm
  • Bonnet Cleaning
  • Oscillating Pad / Orbital Machine
  • Counter-Rotating Cylindrical Brush - CRB 
  • Spot Cleaning 
  • Recurring Spills 
  • Upholstery 


Shampoo Encap Method: Mix Encap-Basic at 4 oz per gallon for light soil, 6 oz per gallon for medium soil, and 8 oz per gallon for heavy soil. Apply with a coarse tip sprayer or with a shower-feed solution tank. Scrub the carpet thoroughly making overlapping passes with a Cimex, rotary, or cylindrical brush machine. Rinsing is not required. Vacuum at the next scheduled vacuuming interval. 

Traffic Lane Pre-Spray: Mix Encap-Basic at 16 oz per gallon. Apply with a pump or battery-powered sprayer using a coarse spray tip. Apply a heavier amount in more soiled areas. Allow 5-10 minutes of dwell time. 

Bonnet/Pad Method: Mix Encap-Basic at 8-10 oz per gallon of warm or hot water. Apply with a coarse tip sprayer. Scrub the carpet thoroughly making overlapping passes with a damp, clean, bonnet/pad.

PRE-CLEANING NOTE: As with all cleaning products - ALWAYS TEST any questionable fabric to establish (wet-cleaning compatibility and color-fastness) in an inconspicuous spot prior to cleaning.

Great product for low to mid soil encap cleaning.

We have used the ReleaseIt products after trying many other products and found these to be the best performing and cost effective for our business.

Encap basic, What a great product! Used it to clean 60 hotel rooms last cut through nasty soil like a hot knife! I was actually surprised at the performance, as this is a less expensive alternative...and I also like that after cleaning for 10 hrs it didnt bother my sinuses like some other products do! Great product, buy it!
