After all, our world belongs to the children and Blue Bird Busses safely carry that precious cargo to and from their schools each day,” concluded Bennett.
FogXpt was also specifically designed for the needs of Blue Bird and its customers. A simple spray-on application protects buses for more than a month from the streaking, rusting, corrosion and dulling that can occur during storage. Whether the vehicle is on its way to the customer site or sitting over summer break, FogX keeps the elements at bay. Both Torque PTC and FogXpt are being added to the Blue Bird owner’s manual and warranty as products of choice to wash and protect the hundreds of thousands of Blue Bird buses in operation today in over 60 countries. In fact, starting August 6th, Blue Bird began to treat each bus as it rolls off the assembly line with FogXpt.
“EMS is pleased with the recognition we received today and during the months of testing from Blue Bird and PPG,” said John MacDonald, President of EMS. “It’s always rewarding to find companies like Blue Bird that are willing to discover green and effective alternatives to dangerous chemicals. Like our other OEM partners Mack, McNeilus, Oshkosh, Volvo and others, EMS is certain of the benefit our technology provides the manufacturer, the customer and the environment.”
Powered by EMS’ patented synthetic acid and caustic replacements SynTech and SynClean, Torque PTC and FogXpt carry a triple-zero HMIS score. These products meet or exceed the highest standards created by EPA’s Design for Environment program, including biodegradation per direct release guidelines, and have been submitted for inclusion in this program.
