NEW PRODUCT RELEASE
Bio-based Cleaner Removes Grease And Stops Rust
From its new generation of soybean derivative products, Cortec® is introducing a full strength,
industrial grade surface cleaner and degreaser. Dilutable with water up to 1:1, the EcolineTM
Cleaner/Degreaser can be used in both industrial and commercial applications. Specially designed for environmental and safety characteristics, the heavy duty cleaner has a nearly neutral pH so no special
safety equipment is required during use. Utilizing soybean methyl esters, the product removes tough grease build-up and still provides complete biodegradability.
EcolineTM Cleaner/Degreaser can be used for all types of hard surfaces including plastic, composites, laminates, and metal. After cleaning, the surface is simply rinsed with water for
streak-free appearance. Once metal has been thoroughly cleaned and degreased, it normally rusts in just a few hours. EcolineTM Cleaner/Degreaser incorporates Cortec® patented VpCITM technology to stop flash rust. This unique corrosion inhibitor forms a monomolecular barrier that keeps corrosive
agents and humidity from attacking the metal surface for up to 2 weeks.
With its greater safety for people and the environment, EcolineTM is the new generation replacement
for cleaners that incorporate mineral oil or solvents for degreasing. While providing powerful degreasing action, the EcolineTM formulation is VOC free and does not contain any flammable
solvents. This eliminates the need for hazardous storage and higher costs for special disposal.
The EcolineTM VOC free formulation provides a noticeable improvement for an industrial strength
cleaner. It offers a neutral, mild fragrance and does not permeate the air with harsh chemical vapors. The product is available in 16 oz trigger spray bottles for hand application and containers from 5 to
55 gallons for industrial applications with dip tank, brush and pressure spray.
