Elevance Renewable Sciences Inc. offers Elevance Clean 1200, a degreasing and VOC-exempt solvent that outperforms traditional and bio-based solvents for industrial degreasing applications in heavy manufacturing, transportation maintenance and repair (MRO) operations and industrial food processing.

The cleaner is produced from natural oils to create a novel solvent architecture that achieves sustainability goals while improving cleaning performance with tough-to-remove soils like industrial-grade grease, paraffin wax, automotive lubricants, metalworking fluids and corrosion-preventive oils. To suite a variety of applications, the formula can be blended with other solvents or emulsified with the addition of surfactants to provide semi-aqueous systems. In addition, the cleaner can be used in mechanical and touchless (immersion) cleaning applications.

Elevance Clean 1200 also meets restrictive environmental requirements. It is VOC-exempt, readily biodegradable (by OECD method) and nonflammable.
