Biodegradable & Environmentally Safer Degreaser
Water Works™ 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.
Unlike traditional chemistries such as mineral spirits, high alkaline or hazardous chemicals, Water Works™ Heavy Duty Degreaser uses the power of water. This technology is proven safe for the material being cleaned, the trained worker and is environmentally responsible. Heavy Duty Degreaser Concentrate is packaged in concentrated form for cost effectiveness.
How Heavy Duty Degreaser Concentrate Works
Heavy Duty Degreaser concentrate’s environmentally safer advanced cleaning agents work with the power of water to remove common oil, grease, and other organic deposits by breaking through the sticky bond they all share. Once these bonds are broken water can then wash away the grime in an environment it normally couldn’t.
What about RUST!!! We thought of that! Heavy Duty Degreaser has built in rust inhibitors so your parts are protected from flash corrosion by a thin invisible layer until they are rinsed clean.
Because water is an important part of cleaning/degreasing with Heavy Duty Degreaser the dilution ratio is equally important. Our recommended dilution ratios are a great starting point but you may find a better dilution ratio for your cleaning method depending on a variety of factors including the viscosity and density of the material being removed. Once you see what you can do without harsh solvents and other toxic ingredients you will never clean the same again.
Green Seal Certified GS-34
Heavy Duty Degreaser has meet the following requirements to be certified by GreenSeal.
The Green Seal Standard for Cleaning and Degreasing Agents, GS-34, establishes environmental requirements for agents suitable for cleaning soils in production and maintenance applications. Suitable agents do not include those for specialized cleaning/degreasing operations such as the removal of paints, sealants, rust, and adhesives; handwiping parts; preparation of surfaces for electroplating, organic coatings, and parts testing; or the cleaning of hydraulic components, medical supplies, electronics, and optics.

South Coast AQMD Certified Clean Air Solvent:
Heavy Duty Degreaser has meet the following requirements to be certified by AQMD as a Clean Air Solvent.
The low VOC requirement of the rules and the availability of the new solvents generate a new class of solvent called Clean Air Solvent (CAS). In order to be qualified, the clean air solvent has to meet all of the following criteria:
- VOC concentration is no more than 25 grams of VOC per liter of material, as applied;
- Composite vapor pressure is no more than 5 mm Hg of VOC at 20°C (68°F);
- Reactivity is not higher than toluene; and,
- Contains no compounds classified as Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) by the federal Clean Air Act, Ozone-Depleting Compounds (ODCs), or Global Warming Compounds (GWCs).
This product is a cleaner / degreaser designed to remove organics from any surface compatible with water.
Organics (materials originating from the chemical element carbon) originate from people/animals, plants and petroleum.
