Lemsolv Industrial

Fast Working, Heavy Duty, Water Rinsable Degreasing Solvent

A highly efficient heavy duty solvent degreaser.

Environmentally friendly and readily biodegradable, Lemsolv Industrial removes the most tenacious grease, heavy oil, wax, asphaltines and bitumen emulsions.

A blend of biodegradable surfactants and performance enhancing solvents, Lemsolv Industrial has a very high solvency factor (+100Kb), enabling it to penetrate and lift even the heaviest of oil contamination quickly and safely.

Our new formulation of Lemsolv Industrial has an elevated Flash Point (65°) and is no longer classified as flammable for transport. A safe to use and eco-friendly alternative to some of the more hazardous and highly flammable solvent degreasers currently on the market.

  • Heavy duty degreaser and parts washer cleaner
  • Water rinsable and separator friendly
  • High solvency and high flash point
  • Readily biodegradable 
  • Free from chlorine and other hazardous solvents
  • Free from D-limonene (see FAQs section here)

Why did we make these changes?

  • Removal of D-Limonene - reduces VOC contents and environmental and user hazard.
  • Increase performance - new solvent has higher solvency value for effective cleaning properties.
  • Reduce environmental impact - biodegradable, non-toxic and with no potential for bioaccumulation.
  • Increased Flash Point -  to increase the safety of Lemsolv Industrial, we increased its Flash Point by 8˚, making it less hazardous and no longer classified flammable for transport.

Benefits

Our new Lemsolv Industrial has all the power of our old formulation but with improved safety and environmental benefits!

Where to Use

Removes heavy oil, wax, grease, asphaltines and bitumen emulsions up to 10 times faster than traditional solvents from cleaning oil storage tanks and equipment.  

Lemsolv Industrial is extensively used throughout the engineering and transport industry as a cleaner and degreasing fluid for:

  • Heavy plants
  • Workshop floors
  • Engines
  • Chains
  • Machinery
  • and many others...

How to Use

  • Use as a contact, dip, immersion or spray on degreaser.
  • Apply undiluted to the oil contaminated area and allow a contact time of 10−15 minutes before rinsing with water.
  • Allow up to 60 minutes when used in the cleaning of oil tanks or heater tubes.
  • For best results use hot water to rinse clean.
