AcraStrip 600 B & G Mod Military - Acetone Substitute

AcraStrip 600 B&G MOD (MILITARY) is a ready-to-use environmentally friendly biodegradable military solvent that was designed to replace MEK, acetone, hexanone, cyclohexanone, xylene, toluene, mineral spirits, and other hazardous cleaning solvents. Its composition is an aqueous blend of organic solvents and esters wetting agents. This acetone alternative was developed specifically for military applications where CARC paints are generally used. CARC paints are very resistant to cleaning and have previously required toxic products for cleaning and purging. However, Polychem AcraStrip 600 B&G MOD military solvent was specifically designed to purge (chemical agent resistant coating) CARC paints.

AcraStrip 600 B&G Mod (MILITARY) Applications

As an acetone, xylene, and toluene replacement, AcraStrip 600 B&G (MILITARY) is a HAPs free, biodegradable, non-flammable, PH neutral and water-dilutable composition. This MEK and acetone replacement has many different applications, some of which include:

  • Flushing paint lines
  • Depainting of military-specific paints (urethanes, acrylics, epoxies, waterborne, high solid bake enamels)
  • Electrostatic bell cleaner
  • Gun cleaner
  • Pressure pots & pumps during multiple and rapid color changes

Polychem AcraStrip 600 B&G MOD (MILITARY) replaces solvent materials such as MEK, acetone, xylene, toluene and many other solvents used in military painting facilities.

Eco-Friendly, Aqueous Acetone Replacement

AcraStrip 600 B&G (MILITARY) is completely HAPS free and does not contain any SARA 313 listed solvents. This MEK, acetone, xylene and toluene replacement allows for separation through simple gravity filtration. AcraStrip 600 B&G military solvent 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 this product is filtered it will continue to clean and flush lines for extended use. Once the AcraStrip lifecycle is complete, the disposal of spent material does not typically involve any HAZMAT removal fees.

Polychem AcraStrip 600 B&G MOD military solvent contains only 0.77 lbs/gal VOC at 15% use concentration, which is less than 10% compared to 100% VOC solvents. The technological improvement of surface chemistry coupled with fluid dynamics of AcraStrip 600 B & G MOD (MILITARY) enables it to perform as well as a solvent, but without the toxicity and hazardous waste disposal problems.a tan military vehicle in a sterile white room
