Renewable, biobased solvent removes industrial-grade complex greases

June 27, 2014

Elevance Renewable Sciences Inc. has introduced Elevance Clean™ 1200, a degreasing and VOC-exempt solvent for industrial degreasing in such applications as heavy manufacturing and transportation MRO.

The renewable, biobased solvent, produced from natural oils, removes industrial-grade complex greases (lithium, molybdenum disulfide), paraffin waxes, automotive lubricants, metalworking fluids, and corrosion-preventive oils. It can be used as a pure solvent, blended with other solvents, or emulsified with surfactants to provide semiaqueous systems for a variety of industrial degreasing applications.
