LP 1040

Synthetic Solvent Degreaser

LP-1040 is a heavy duty degreaser and will attack the toughest soils and yet is easy on the hands. It was developed for the parts washer industry as a replacement for the toxic solvent Mineral Spirits commonly used in “pan on a can” washers. LP-1040 is a water base biodegradable degreaser that allows oils taken up in the cleaning process to separate from the solution for skimming and thereby lengthens the life of the cleaner. The spent solution may be disposed of into the city sewer system. LP-1040 may be used in most cleaning systems, but was designed for parts washers that would normally use solvents. LP 1040 rivals mineral spirits in its cleaning ability if so used.
