Quick Break Emulsifying Cleaner & Degreaser

Quick Break Emulsifying Cleaner & Degreaser

Accepta 3538 is a high performance solvent based, self-emulsifying cleaner designed, researched and developed to carry forward the concept of solvent degreasing into an environmentally conscious world.

Traditional solvent and water based emulsifying cleaners and degreasers produce stable emulsions with oils and greases which are subsequently rinsed to drain. Current environmental legislation regarding effluent discharges to surface drains, limits the discharge of oils and other hydrocarbons to 15 ppm.

Using Accepta 3538 will enable you to meet that 15ppm limit on hydrocarbons and oils for discharge.

A highly efficient emulsifying cleaner and degreaser with a quick break action means that the oils and greases are emulsified for rinsing but the resulting emulsion is unstable and breaks back to form an easily disposable supernatant waste.
