With growing concerns for the environment and workers’ health, it is important that businesses adapt to create new, innovative products which minimise any negative impacts.
Aqueous or water-based parts washers are becoming an increasingly popular and eco-friendly alternative for businesses. Compared to solvent washers which clean parts using petroleum-based contaminants (that are toxic, flammable and polluting), water-based parts washers are much safer and effective, since they use aqueous, non-toxic and water-based cleaning fluids. It’s high performance cleaning liquid cleans tough grease and oil and then recycles it into water and CO2, leaving you with clean parts and minimal waste.
By using a water-based parts washer, your business will also foster a safe and comfortable environment for your employees. You’ll minimise any harmful chemicals in cleaning solutions, which are notorious for causing adverse illnesses and hazardous injuries on workers such as breathing difficulties, headaches, skin irritations (dermatitis) and loss of motor function.
