Elevance Clean® 1000 is a high-performing, bio-based and non-hazardous cleaning ingredient that reduces uncertainty in price and supply for d-limonene. It is ideally suited for metal parts cleaning and general purpose degreasing formulas, and offers better performance compared to petroleum based materials. Made from plant oils with more than 80% bio-based carbon, Elevance Clean 1000 is VOC free, readily biodegradable and non-flammable.

 

Features & Benefits of Elevance Clean 1000

  • Safe alternative to d-limolene
  • Easily formulated with d-limolene due to similar HLB value
  • Higher Kb value than d-limolene providing superior cleaning in many applications
  • Outperforms d-limolene at neutral pH, eliminating the need for highly caustic cleaning products, and the need to preserve sensitive metal substrates
  • Demonstrates higher oxidative stability and lower vapor pressure at elevated temperatures relative to other solvents
  • Non-flammable (ASTM D-93) by OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.106
  • VOC-exempt (Director 2004/42/CE of the European Parliament and the Council)
  • Readily biodegradable by OECD Method 301
