An industrial parts degreaser is basically a chemical substance designed to disolve specific or broader types of residues into a determined solvent (in most cases water). The use of water based cleaners is widely popular given that they are a cost effective and usually safer alternative to solvent based solutions. The most common way in which water based industrial cleaners work is by having a lipophilic/ oleophilic part and a hydrophilic part to their molecular structure. This causes oil / grease based substances to be emulsified in water and carried away from the part's surface.
What Makes Our Industrial Cleaners And Degreasers Special?
VpCI® cleaners are a helpful line of products that can remove a variety of materials including oils, grease, process fluids, etc. using water based chemistry with no VOC or flammability risk. Having the products powered by Nano-VpCI® makes this line of cleaners specially good to prevent flash rust after cleaning.
How to Use Our Cleaners?
These products should be diluted with water in most cases before use. It is recommended to change the dilution ratio depending on how tough of cleaning is needed to get the most cost effective solution. Please see the options below for approximate ranges of dilution:
• 1% to 3% for very light cleaning, may require increased temperature and agitation/scrubbing
• 3% to 10% for light to medium cleaning or for easy to remove contaminants
• 10% to 30% for heavy duty or faster cleaning
• 30% to concentrate for the very toughest contaminants
It is recommended to dilute with clean water, but typically water with minerals can still be used without affecting the stability of the cleaner. It should be noted that minerals could cause water spotting.
