Following numerous requests from garages and motorists, Ceramex is now providing its unique Xpurge DPF cleaning technology for cars and light commercial vehicles across the UK in partnership with Unipart Automotive and The Parts Alliance.

Marcus Beament, Account Manager for Ceramex, said: “The combination of our Xpurge DPF cleaning technology and the national coverage of our partners means we can reach every service centre and garage in the UK efficiently and professionally.”

“However, since we modified the Xpurge technology to handle car DPFs we have achieved 100% success rate in cleaning.  The customers also find our inspection report very useful.”

'Andy Leighfield - Emissions Category Manager at Unipart Automotive commented, "we are delighted to be partnering with Ceramex in a technology that is unique in the marketplace and provides our customers with a market leading, cost effective service"
