Hallweld Bennett appointed Australian distributors for a German product range that’s cleaning up in Europe!

Hallweld has announced its appointment as distributor for a range of concrete equipment cleaners produced by respected German company LEYCO CHEMISCHE LEYDE.

Hallweld Sales Manager, Carl Wildman, says that LEYCO “spray-on” concrete equipment cleaners have proved to be extremely successful in Europe because they “do everything they claim to do. The products that we’re handling have been developed for the concrete industry in conjunction with the concrete industry. The result is superior products that honestly save big dollars for those involved in the making, transporting and usage of concrete. They dramatically cut cleaning and maintenance times, and because there’s no need for the primitive hammer and chisel treatment they protect valuable equipment, reduce worker injuries and thus present a far better bottom-line.”
Products are also highly biodegradable, use no dangerous solvents or heavy metals, contain corrosion inhibitors and can safely be used on rubber, glass and painted surfaces.
Two products in particular have a special relevance for Australian conditions:

ZE-KA-FIX quickly and thoroughly cleans concrete from equipment and tools. It is applied with either brush or sprayer and immediately it hits the surface you can see it attacking the cement. The product is chloride-free, has no adverse effect on concrete and will not cause corrosion within the concrete. It will not damage surfaces meaning there’s less maintenance and repainting. And hard physical chipping and scrapping is a thing of the past. The manufacturer claims it to be very economical as it can be diluted with up to 10 parts water.
It clearly has applications on building sites, in ready-mix plants or within precast factories.


ZETOLAN-MEK Plus is a completely new “spray-on” protection and maintenance system that’s active on hard existing concrete deposits but harmless to fresh concrete. It penetrates and removes hardened concrete layer by layer and at the same time helps prevent the formation of new deposits. Applied at the end of the working day ZETOLAN-MEK Plus works overnight readying equipment for the morning start. Again hard physical cleaning is averted and cleaning times can be cut by up to 50%.

The product is ideal for the cleaning and protection of mixers, trucks, pumps and anywhere that concrete adhesion is a problem.

Another product of interest is LEYCO®-SLICK…the quickest and easiest way to prime a pump. It can be used with any type of concrete pump and is “friendly” to concrete. LEYCO-SLICK comes in ready-to-use pouches and is a unique compound of high performance components which offer superlative cost reductions by saving time and by protecting pumps and pipes. It’s effective, economical and environmentally safe.
