    A CRB or Certified Pile lifter are not vacuum cleaners (two brushes pulling up)---and no vacuum cleaner has near the suck of even a small TM.

    Sold many Certified Pile Lifters lately?

    I'm just here to agitate----grin

    Never in my life have I seen such over hyped products. Making up stupid names for the polymers . When in reality they probably are just a form of floor wax. But I guess you have to over hype to get $45 a gallon.

    Most over hyped products in our industry.

    They are required by some manufacturers for commercial carpet warranties.

    For good reasons.

    How long did it take for a gallon of rtu product to evaporate?

    Can you duplicate this experiment?

    Jug was left unattended for about a month in our dehumidified shop. Sure I can try this again.

    So can you admit that all it leaves is a dry residue? Encapsulation is a fancy marketing term to sell more product.
    Stay away from any yellow or white residue. You want a clear crystal ( Powder)

    Did you know that chemspec's formula 90 also leaves a DRY RESIDUE that can be vacuumed up?
    Read the product description. Why you can use that as a bonnet cleaning solution at 1 oz per 5 gallons of water and be assured it will leave a DRY residue that can be vacuumed up : )

    All are film former's! But all situations are not the same, and I've made money on HWE & Encapping.

    There would be less debate about this method if a proper vacuum process was actually necessary to achieve the same level of appearance improvement that the method is able to achieve without it.

    To the benefit of the manufacturers of course.

    Sometimes i think we all over think, over complicate, and over analyze things on lots of topics, not just this one
    if product A works good and product B does not then i buy product A end of story,
    i'm no chemist and don't concern myself with how a product does what it does,
    if it works good and doesn't kill me or my customers i'll use it.
    I am not an automobile mechanic nor do i totally understand how they work, I just know i get in, turn the key, the thing starts, i put into gear and drive. Don't care how it does it but only that it does. That was just an example, maybe not a good one but i think maybe i made a point.

    Dilute it per directions than let it evaporate.
