The introduction of the AQUAQUICK products
The producers off the AQUAQUICK products originated from a company called TKF (Twentsche Krijt Fabriek), which was founded in 1957. At that time the most important products were various kinds of chalk, like school board chalks and textile marking chalks.
The well known yellow coating on school board chalk was an invention of Henri de Vries. Another invention was GARBOSOL, a patented textile marking chalk which was easily removable with water. GARBOSOL was sold worldwide.
Reacting to the demands of the environment- and user-friendly cleaning products, the inventor Mr. Henri de Vries, developed AQUAQUICK 2000 in close cooperation with the University of Twente. AQUAQUICK 2000 has been available on the market since 1988. Since then the AQUAQUICK products have been tested and examined on a regular base in numerous independent international research institutes worldwide.
This wide range of approvals and certificates guarantees that the AQUAQUICK products are completely safe for the environment and user. Since 1998 AQUAQUICK 2000 is a market leader in the Netherlands for the Dutch Fire Brigades (Cleaning road surfaces after oil spills).
The AQUAQUICK products have been developed by paying particular attention to the physical and biological processes that make it possible to form a microemulsion with and stimulate the biodegradation of hydrocarbon.
