Solon, OH… Permatex®, a leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, will be introducing Fast Orange® Antibacterial Pumice Hand Cleaner, the only heavy-duty hand cleaner on the market to include antibacterial agents capable of killing 99% of germs.

Fast Orange is one of the most trusted hand cleaners used by professional automotive technicians and DIYers. While cleaning grease and grime remains important, technicians are now also tasked with eliminating germs. Formulated using premium grade surfactants and pumice, along with primary ingredients found in antibacterial hand soap, Fast Orange Antibacterial Pumice Hand Cleaner is the only hand cleaner capable of handling both grease and germs.
