What is the difference between a water based and a solvent based degreaser?
Heavy Duty Degreaser is a non-hazardous, water based, detergent blend that does not contain any chelating ingredients such as EDTA, phosphates or chlorinated solvents. Not soy based. This product is a cleaner / degreaser designed to remove organics from any surface compatible with water.
All solvents work by dissolving the soil; breaking it down into smaller particles and carrying it into the solution and away from the surface being cleaned. Many solvents offer an advantage of a quick cleaning, so the soils dissolve and flow off of the substrate without needing extended prep time, processing time or drying time. Solvent based cleaners remain popular in industrial applications due to their cleaning power; they remove thick, baked on oils, dirt, containments, solder flux, and greases.
