Evening All,

I want some Swarfega "Stop Quick" brake and clutch cleaner in a 5 litre container, not the aerosol spray.

I've tried the web, ebay and google all with no joy.

Can anyone put me onto somewhere to get it local to me (nr. Slough) SL postcode or perhaps someone who will ship it by post?

I've emailed the manufacturer - no response.

Thanks in advance.

Oh - and I don't want to try any alternatives thanks - I have been recommended this specific product by two people I trust so want to track down the exact same stuff please - ta.

Cheers

Thanks for this - perfect (except price and delivery)

Try here
http://www.safeweardisposable.co.uk/product/19/75/
Check out prices though as the lowest for 500ml I've seen advertised is £2.John

Thanks John, perfect - you located it. Only problem is that it is £8 more expensive that I was told in the Pub at the Aldershot Section and then on top of that they want another £8.50 to deliver it.

I'll keep hoping that someone else manages to post on here where I can get it direct/cheaper - but if not have the fall back of using them.

Many thanks indeed for your help.

Cheers

I contacted them - but they didn't reply. Does anyone know what the constituents are?

I've found a number of outlets for this on the net but non in your vicinity , it's a Deb UK Ltd product so I suggest you contact them and ask for an outlet near to you , http://www.deb.co.uk/ukswarfega/(S(psgoej55mhqu2e554zd1fr55))/default.aspx

Hi, I contacted them, but they never replied.

"Comma" products did reply and said that their product is made up as follows:

"The Brake cleaner contains the following:around 60% of light petroleum naphtha, some 30% of pro-pan-2-ol and 10%of n-hexane. "


As I have been so positively recommeneded the Stop Quick product I am reluctant to move away from that.

Has anyone a container of Stop Quick and can check the contents against the above make up of the Comma Product?

I can't find any product details of the Stop Quick product on the internet, hence the request.

Ahhhh well...................

Hi Stuart,
What are you going to use it for and why do you need so much??

Bod

Morning,

Three possible reasons:

1 - Buckfast Tonic Wine is not available!

2 - I'm told my bike will do 200mph on it!

3 - No - actually I was recommended it to use as a cleaning bath to soak/clean all the dissassembled parts from my clutch when I take it apart for inspection as I have a slipping clutch on a hot engine (there's enough free play on the actuating arm). I was also recommended it as a general multi-purpose de-greaser and told it can be re-used - hence make myself up a parts bath, soak and clean and then keep what's left over to use again and again.

I'v now managed to find a local (5 miles) supplier who has it in stock - so I'm off to collect some later today.

Thanks for your interest.

Cheers

Sorted - try these guys if you get stuck....

I've found a number of outlets for this on the net but non in your vicinity , it's a Deb UK Ltd product so I suggest you contact them and ask for an outlet near to you , http://www.deb.co.uk/ukswarfega/(S(psgoej55mhqu2e554zd1fr55))/default.aspx

Afternoon All,

If you need some, or in fact a whole range of ther motor products then I can recommend you try "Motor Parts Direct", http://www.mpdonline.co.uk/

I found them through Swarfega themselves eventually, they are a owned/franchise business with branches all over the South - and great value for money - the best I had found prior was £23 + £8.50 P&P for 5L - well I just picked it up for £14.57 for 5L - good deal.

I bought a range of other stuff from them too - all cheaper than Halfords, they sell usually direct to the trade but private buyers can purchase too.

They have a range of oils, tools, bulbs, batteries,cleaners, degreasers and the like - well worth a look.

Success - thanks to all who helped.

Regards

Hi
I use Quick Stop but having spent all my working life in heavy petrochemical engineering, I have a healthy respect for it's ingredients. I use the spray bottle that comes with the 5 ltr container and use the minimum quantity to rinse the component off, catching the run off in a metal container and I do it outside. I certainly wouldn't pour enough into a container to submerge parts because of the rate at which it evapourates. It's flash point is 2 degrees C so a significant build of vapour is easy to ignite as well as having other side effects for example if used in a small shed (not everyone has a large well ventilated workspace). I have a parts washer and I wouldn't use it in that either. It's a good product if used correctly.
