How We Work

Water Works degreasers are the solution to replacing harsh solvents in the workplace.
 
Our degreasers are aqueous also known as water-based and contain a micro emulsion of chemistry that eats grease and oils away. The water then washes the surface and in some cases like Heavy Duty Degreaser it leaves a rust inhibitor for protection. Storm Ultra provides this same protection and operates at high temperatures up to 150°F.  
 
Here is a short list of toxic chemicals we help replace in the workplace:
 
  • Industrial Alcohols
  • Caustics
  • Acetone
  • Soy
  • Ketones

Where Our Products Work

We strive to replace harsh solvents and other toxic chemicals from the daily work life with a cleaner that is safer to use and just as effective. This means you can find our products anywhere naptha, alcohol, or high acidic cleaners have traditionally been used.
 
Our cleaners start with pH balanced water and are not citrus based, this means our cleaners do not use acidity to clean. This can be very important in the manufacturing and maintenance world where the cleaning process cannot alter the part. Over time the residual acid will eat away coatings, base materials, and even the parts washer making it unfit for cleaning. Some of our cleaners have a very specific use for instance Max XT cleaner. Max XT is designed for oil refinery cleaning in the field. cleaning coker charges, asphalt tar, paraffins, drag reduction agents. Max XT cleans crude oil & tenacious soils reducing your cleaning and turn-around time. Our other cleaners; Heavy Duty Degreaser, Xtreme 2, and Storm Ultra are general use degreaser cleaners that overlap in cleaning ability but have specific strengths. Heavy Duty Degreaser is great for parts washers, spray and wipe/brush, dip tanks. With its various certifications it is one of the most environmentally responsible ways to clean. Storm Ultra is normally used where foam can become an issue like high heat high pressure cabinet washers. With its ability to clean at temperatures up to 150F Storm Ultra is the go-to aqueous solution for cabinet wash systems. Xtreme 2 is a great general cleaner but targets heavier grime such as paraffins, asphalt removal, and heavy inks. Its unique ability to target tars and asphalt make it our most extreme cleaner that is safe to use in confined spaces.
