AcraStrip 950: An Acetone Alternative

Polychem AcraStrip 950 is a ready to use environmentally friendly biodegradable cleaner that was designed to replace acetone, MEK, chlorinated and fluorinated solvents, toluene, MEK and other hazardous cleaning solvents. This acetone alternative was developed with worker safety in mind due to its low odor and biodegradability. The AcraStrip 950 is used in the composites industry, chemical manufacturing industry, automotive and architectural industries.

AcraStrip 950 Applications

As an acetone replacement AcraStrip 950 is a HAPs free, biodegradeable, non-flammable, PH neutral and recyclable green solvent. This acetone replacement has many different applications, some of which include:

  • General equipment
  • Tool cleaning
  • Roll coaters
  • Line flushing
  • Pump cleaning
  • Gun flushing
  • Pultrusion tanks
  • RTM’s
  • Winding Machines

As an acetone replacement AcraStrip specifically targets polyester, vinyl ester or epoxy resin, gel coats, adhesives, putty, urethanes, and stains. In addition, AcraStrip is a green solvent that can also clean permanent marker and inks. In addition, due to evaporation and its high Kb value, AcraStrip 950 has better solvency than traditional hazardous solvents used in manufacturing processes.

Eco-Friendly Recyclable Solvent

Through its bio-solvents and unique surfactant package the AcraStrip 950 allows for separation thru simple gravity filtration. AcraStrip can also be filtered for re-use. Grease, resin and a host of other contaminants will settle to the bottom of the buckets, drums, totes or tanks for easy disposal. After AcraStrip 950 is filtered it will continue to clean and flush lines for extended use. Once the AcraStrip life/cycle is complete, disposal of spent material dose not typically involve any HAZMAT removal fees.

Acetone Replacement Cost Savings

AcraStrip 950 has a very high Kb value of 750, which allows for a longer life cycle compared to traditional industry solvents. AcraStrip 950 can be recycled inexpensively by using a simple settle, filter and add back process, this process uses very little energy or labor. Additionally, there are no Hazmat shipping fees or special handing associated with AcraStrip 950.
