Water Works by Keteca

industrial water-based degreasers

Water Works is a full line of high-performance industrial water-based(aqueous) degreasers that are used throughout the manufacturing world from aerospace to semiconductors and everything in between.  We aim to make the world a safer place by providing people and workplaces a safer degreaser/cleaner alternative to aromatic solvents, oxygenated solvents, and halogenated solvents.

How We Work

Water Works degreasers use the power of a environmentally safer micro emulsion chemistry suspended in water to break down the substance you wish to remove and then the power of water to wash it away.  With Water Works degreasers you can reduce and/or eliminate harsh solvents from the workplace thus reducing worker exposure and disposal costs. 

Here is a short list of toxic chemicals we would like to see removed from our everyday lives:

  • Industrial Alcohols
  • Caustics
  • Acetone
  • Soy
  • Ketones

All of our products are micro-emulsion water-based degreasers and therefore just as effective as a traditional solvent while being safer for the worker and environment than traditional solvents.

Where We Work

Industries you can find Water Works degreasers in range from the Manufacturing industry and CNC machining, to DOT Agencies (Department of Transportation) and oil drilling platforms off of the coast of California and Texas.

The surfaces Keteca Water Works water-based degreasers work on range of materials from ferrous and non-ferrous,  plastics, and other various substrates.  This means for the non-engineer most metals and plastics are compatible but please consult us with questions. 

In conclusion believe with the right chemistry a water-based degreaser can remove anything, just look at the power of water in nature when used alone.  All we add are advanced surfactants to aid the water in doing its job.

Research & Design Lab

 Keteca Water Works has a dedicated Research and Design team in the USA that is well equipped to tackle your toughest cleaning challenges.  We have developed custom degreasers for the oil and gas industry, printing industry, manufacturing industry, and other unique projects where an off the shelf degreaser just wouldn’t work. 

 We are also there to help when transitioning from a toxic degreasers to a water based formula, sometimes it is not as easy as switching degreasers or cleaning solutions. Some processes might need changing depending on workflow and we have seen it.  We can help guide you through that change before it happens and we are willing to get as involved as you need and help you become a more environmentally safer company.
