Solvents & Parts Cleaning

Solvents have many useful applications including metal cleaning, parts cleaning, surface preparation, degreasing, paint thinners and lubricants. Because of their widespread prevalence in many industrial products, solvents are among the most commonly used chemicals in the workplace.

Many solvents are “organic”, petroleum based chemicals which have very powerful substance dissolving properties. Unfortunately these organic solvents can be extremely hazardous to worker health and safety, causing a wide range of short term injuries and long term illnesses, and posing significant challenges to business to manage the safe handling, storage and disposal of waste products.
