Water Based Cleaners Used As Safer,
Greener Alternatives to Solvent Chemistries
Global, national, state, and municipal regulations continue to limit the cleaning choices available to manufacturers.
These regulatory pressures force manufacturers to evaluate new cleaners and cleaning processes to overcome these hurdles. In response, water-based cleaners are becoming more common in the industry. Unfortunately, because of poor formulations of the past, water-based cleaners have a reputation of poor performance. Water-based cleaners are innately neither better nor worse, but they work very differently from their solvent counterparts.
