Elevance Clean® 1200 is an effective industrial grade bio-based and VOC-exempt cleaning ingredient that outperforms traditional and bio-based solvents and surfactants.

It’s suitable for use in formulations for cleaning tar, asphalt and bitumen from the surface of tools, equipment and vehicles. This innovative, bio-based solution can be used in a broad range of aqueous, non-aqueous and organic-based systems while being used in neutral pH (6-9) formulations.

The Elevance Clean® 1200 product line consists of two products containing the same active material. The technical performance of both products is identical.

  • Elevance Clean® 1200XA is a cleaning ingredient without added fragrance.
  • Elevance Clean® 1200HT is Elevance Clean® 1200XA with fragrance added.

Performance 

Asphalt/Tar Removal – Solvent-Based Formulations

When compared to most petroleum-based solvents (e.g. Benzene, Ethyl Benzene, Toluene, and Xylenes-BETX), Elevance Clean 1200 has an improved environmental profile, and when compared to other bio-based products (e.g. d-Limonene) Elevance Clean 1200 is VOC-exempt. These attributes of Elevance Clean 1200 will allow formulators maximum flexibility in developing products that will meet your customers’ most challenging cleaning requirements.

Asphalt/Tar Removal – Water-Based Formulations

Elevance Clean 1200 not only does an excellent job at removing asphalt and tar at ambient temperatures but excels at removing these challenging soils at low temperatures for both routine, low-concentrate formulations and more concentrated spray and rinse formulations used for more heavily soiled surfaces.
