Certification mark for wheel rim cleaner and front windshield cleaner

Scope:

The certification mark applies to wheel rim cleaners/ front windshield cleaners and thus to special agents used for cleaning wheel rims made from steel, aluminium, chromium etc as well as front windshields.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. For the practice test, TÜV SÜD experts developed a new, comprehensive test scheme. The chemical tests are based on the legal limits. Certified wheel rim cleaners/front windshield cleaners must not exceed these Limits.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • Cleaning Performance
    The wheel rim cleaner/ front windshield cleaner certified by TÜV SÜD Product Service effectively removes dirt on wheel rims, including brake dust as well as dirt from front windshields.
  • Paint compatibility

    The cleaning agent does not attack the paint finish on the vehicle or rim. The wheel rim cleaner/ front windshield cleaner thus does not cause any permanent damage to the paint finish.

  • Chemical compatibility with plastics
    The cleaning agent does not attack, or cause any permanent damage to, plastics.
  • Production monitored

    Periodic surveillance of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification which includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product check.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
