APT understands that household and commercial hand cleaners are not specialised enough for workers in industrial settings to clean their hands. Factories, workshops, labs, and garages must provide industrial hand sanitiser that effectively and safely removes oils, grease, adhesives, paints, resins, carbon, and other substances quickly and safely.

Every industrial hand sanitiser must cover the industry’s needs, and many industrial hand washes contain potent ingredients, including petroleum distillates. These are potentially harmful to the skin because they can create dry skin, cause inflammations, and possibly are carcinogenic.

At APT, we have developed a range of effective industrial hand cleaner supplies to meet the needs of the mechanical, engineering, food, and medical industries.

What sets our industrial hand cleaners apart is their incorporation of skin conditioners. We understand the importance of maintaining healthy and protected hands, even in demanding work environments.
