home care industrial


Explanation:
This is only a translation from their web site - have no idea whether it is really used in the English-speaking world.

They seem to be talking about home care products as well as stuff in cans, sprays etc that can be used in industry.

neutral  cjohnstone: je vois pas comment mixer home et industrial, remarques ai pas idée moi même donc la critique est aisée et l'art est difficile
12 mins

neutral  Carla Abdel Karim: adjective should preceed the nouns in this case.
32 mins
  -> But these are two separate things: Home care products and industrial products, they are not industrial home care products. (Besides as I stated, it's not my translation, just one I found).

neutral  Drmanu49: Home care products and industrial products are different items IMO
2 hrs
  -> Of course they are! If you look at Favera's site, you see that they put household products and industrial products in the same category - oil/grease etc is not used in households (at least not in mine!)

neutral  B D Finch: They really do need to re-translate or edit their English language website.
2 hrs
  -> I agree it's not a good translation - but it includes two types of products for the household and for industry. BTW, I don't know if this company is the one in question (I've just asked).

agree  Clair@Lexeme: the idea of industrial grade cleaning products

  -> Thank you

neutral  Drmanu49: Home care products and industrial products are different items IMO
1 hr
  -> Perhaps but they seem to be associated in this one expression. Again, it all depends on the context.

household products industry


Explanation:
I realise that this may appear to be taking grammatical liberties but, looking at their website, this does seem to be what they are referring to.

35 mins
  -> Thanks.

neutral  Drmanu49: Household products and industrial products are different items IMO. I don't think so, industriel ménager remains what is being "conditioned", industrial grade product for me.
48 mins
  -> I think that you are missing the point: they produce packaging for the industry that produces household products - generally known as the "household products industry".

So the whole statement would be conditioning or packaging for industrial grade products.
