Whether you’re a specialist mechanic, classic-car collector, amateur racing driver, or a DIY vehicle enthusiast, you’ll know that CRC Industries is synonymous with expert-quality automotive products.

Boasting one of the widest selections of aerosol solutions on the market, here are CRC Industries’ Top Five products most commonly found in professional workshops worldwide.


When it comes to vehicle servicing, few jobs are grimier than brake-part replacements. But aside from being dirty work, making sure that your brake surfaces are clean (before installing new components), is an important part of doing the job right the first time.

CRC’s Brakleen is arguably the largest producer of brake-parts cleaner in the world, and a global leader for more than 40 years. It’s also designed to do most of the hard work for you by blasting off brake dust, grease, oil and road grime. However, Brakleen can also be used for…

  • CV joints
  • Clutches
  • Housings
  • Springs, bolt, fasteners and all brake hardware, and…
  • The cleaning of engine parts


If your vehicle is showing signs of a rough idle, loss of power, or even a “Check Engine” light warning, there’s a good chance that your Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor is dirty.

These days, most fuel-injected engines are equipped with a MAF sensor; this device measures the amount (and density) of air entering the engine. The computer then uses this information to determine how much fuel must be injected into the engine.

In most cases, the MAF sensor gets dirty with accumulated debris; usually oil, dust and pollen that can cause inaccurate sensor readings and negatively affect the engine’s air-to-fuel ratio.

Signs of a dirty MAF sensor include:

  • Loss of engine power
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Stalling
  • Rough idle, and…
  • Excessive emissions

CRC’s Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner is specifically developed to clean MAF sensors without damaging or degrading plastic, painted surfaces or sensitive components.


Debris, dust, flux, oil, grease and corrosion tend to build up on electrical contacts, and if left unattended, can lead to contact failure and malfunction. CRC Industries’ QD Electronic Cleaner is a precision cleaner that’s designed to improve electrical connections in your vehicle.

But because the formula is plastic safe, dries quickly and leaves no residue, you don’t have to worry about overspray harming any plastic components, housings, or parts near the area you’re cleaning.

Use CRC’s QD Electronic Cleaner for:

  • Ignition systems
  • Electronic components
  • Spark plugs
  • Tool battery connections
  • Circuit breakers
  • Relay switches
  • Thermostats
  • Light sockets


CRC Industries’ White Lithium Grease is a super lubricant that combines the convenience of a liquid-oil, with the performance benefits of a high-viscosity grease. In other words: It sprays like a liquid, but sticks like a grease!

White Lithium Grease is also water-resistant, highly tolerant to extreme pressures, and boasts a working temperature range that extends from –25Cº right up to 130Cº. On that note, White Lithium Grease is ideal for long-term lubrication, vertical applications, and where the prevention of water ingress is a requirement.

Other notable applications include:

  • A break-in lubrication for bearings and engine assembly
  • Door hinges
  • Pivot points
  • Sunroof rails and sliding panels
  • Bonnet latches
  • Pistons
  • Cams
  • Pulleys
  • Winches
  • Bearing
  • Cables and chains
  • Trailer couplings


No workshop’s tool cabinet is complete without some form of penetrating oil. While many multipurpose oils claim to have excellent penetrating properties, if your job frequently involves loosing overly tight or seized components, then a dedicated release agent such as CRC Industries’ Knocker Loose, is what you really need.

Rather than relying on a thinned-down oil to do the job, Knocker Loose goes a few steps further by including several additives in its formula. These additives include:

  • A high solvent value for better oil, dirt and grime breakdown
  • An oil-based acid for rust removal, and…
  • A corrosion inhibitor for future rust protection

On that note, if your day-to-day job or weekend hobby frequently involves stubborn nuts and bolts, then save your knuckles and let Knocker Loose do all the hard work for you.


If you’re an automotive enthusiast or workshop owner you’ll know that finding an effective way to clean vehicle parts is only half the problem; the bigger issue is disposing the toxic waste when you’re done.

Fortunately, there’s now a smarter way to clean vehicle parts thanks to CRC’s SmartWasher®.

The SmartWasher® uses a scientific process called bioremediation, which means: It uses microbes to break down and neutralise hazardous substances and contaminants.

The CRC SmartWasher® consists of three main components:

• The parts washer
• The OzzyJuice
• The OzzyMat

OzzyJuice is a powerful water-based solution that’s non-hazardous, non-flammable, but tough on oil and grease.

The OzzyMat is the most important feature of the CRC system.
Microbes, within the filter, are activated by the OzzyJuice. These microbes then work to break down the washed-off oil and grease and produce a harmless byproduct of carbon dioxide and water.

In short: OzzyJuice cleans the parts, and the microbes within the OzzyMat clean the OzzyJuice.

This bioremediation process keeps the OzzyJuice clean and strong for repeated uses.

The SmartWasher® is fully mobile and easy to move around your workshop or garage area.
