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.

Exceptional price and performance!

I tried this product based on comments in the Forum, and I am glad I did. This product is at a truly exceptional price point. However, the price wouldn't matter if it didn't clean well. I can attest that it is also an exceptional carpet cleaning product. I use it primarily for vacant apartments, which can be nasty, but do not require the built in fiber protector. It is a perfect application for this segment in my business, and I highly recommend it!.
