Minimizes Health and Safety Hazards
D-Greeze™ 500 is the first safe degreaser/cleaner to outperform Trichloroethane (based on independent testing at a major U.S. university). It dries spotless, leaves no residue, and requires no rinsing. D-Greeze 500 can be used at room temperature in most any existing cleaning tank or equipment. Unlike other cleaners, there is no need to invest in new systems and no heating is required.
For waste reduction and economy, D-Greeze 500 lasts 2½ times longer than a chlorinated solvent and is designed so that it can be recycled on-site. Solvent Kleene offers automatic solvent recovery equipment which reclaims D-Greeze 500 from a contaminated solution using a distillation process. vapor degreasers (no heating, no cooling)

Minimizes Health and Safety Hazards
D-Greeze 500 is a powerful, non-chlorinated degreaser/cleaner specially designed to minimize health and safety hazards. It contains no halogens, CFCs, or SARA-listed chemicals. D-Greeze 500 is non-flammable, non-carcinogenic, non-corrosive, non-reactive, non-ozone depleting, and has no air pollution potential.
Cleaning with D-Greeze 500
D-Greeze 500's aggressive cleaning action will penetrate, dissolve, and remove lubricating oils, grease, adhesive deposits, low-melt waxes, printing inks, and other contaminants. It can be safely used on aluminum, brass, magnesium, copper, carbon steel, stainless steel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
D-Greeze 500 cleans quickly at room temperature. It has no water content and needs no rinsing. D-Greeze 500 eliminates the following problems associated with water-based cleaners: high cost of new equipment, treating a large amount of contaminated waste water, water deionization, corrosion potential, water consumption and rising sewer fees, and ground water pollution potential.
On-Site Solvent Recycling
D-Greeze 500 is formulated so that it can be recycled, enabling your company to comply with the EPA's waste reduction mandate. Recycling involves the removal of usable substances from waste and returning them to productive use.
A spent D-Greeze 500 solution can be reclaimed when processed in one of Solvent Kleene's solvent recovery systems. This process involves pumping spent D-Greeze into a processing tank and heating the solution to its boiling point.
When it reaches its boiling point, the D-Greeze turns to vapor. These vapors are then passed through a cooling chamber and condensed to a clean reusable degreaser/cleaner while the contaminants remain in the tank. You can reclaim and recycle D-Greeze 500 indefinitely, leaving just the contaminants for disposal.
Using D-Greeze with Existing Equipment
D-Greeze 500 enables you to replace hazardous conventional and chlorinated solvents without having to invest in new capital equipment. You can use D-Greeze with just about any type of degreasing/cleaning process including:
D-Greeze 500 is designed for use at ambient temperatures. You can use it in ultrasonic equipment without turning on the heater. It has a low viscosity and responds well to cavitation.
D-Greeze 500 is suitable for use in vapor degreasers with minor modifications. The heater and chiller coils should be disconnected and the liquid level raised (see illustration). To further facilitate cleaning with D-Greeze 500, you can add air agitation to the vapor degreaser or to any immersion tank. You can accomplish this by inserting a metal or rigid PVC pipe with drilled holes into the tank containing the solvent. The drilled pipe is then connected to a pressurized air line. If you need assistance, our engineers are available to help you.
Quick Drying Options
A quick evaporating solvent dries fast but is an air pollutant and a health hazardous substance. Unlike these solvents, D-Greeze 500 has low vapor pressure and presents no air polluting potential. To accommodate fast drying requirements, D-Greeze 500 can be mechanically dried in seconds without evaporation.
D-Greeze 500 has very low surface tension which allows it to be quickly blown-off cleaned parts, leaving no residue. Displaced liquids are collected, not evaporated. Two simple concepts to remove and collect the dragged-out liquid are: blowing high velocity air across the surfaces and centrifugal spin drying of small parts.

Meets Federal and State Regulations
Section 313 of the Superfund Amendment and Reorgani-zation Act (SARA) mandates that a facility must report to the EPA the use and release of specific toxic chemicals. D-Greeze 500 does not contain any of the components listed in Section 313 toxic chemical list. And, as defined in the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990, D-Greeze 500 is not a hazardous air pollutant.
Compatible with VOC regulations, D-Greeze 500 is not photochemically reactive as defined, for example, by California South Coast Rule 102. With 0.7 vapor pressure at 68°F, it is below the specified limit and meets VOC exempt status in many states. By comparison, the vapor pressure at 68°F (20°C) of 1,1,1 Trichloroethane is 100 MM Hg.
Unlike conventional solvents, D-Greeze 500 has very low degree of acute oral and inhalation toxicity and is free of any chlorinated components.
