OPTIMA | 2001CR™ Aqueous Carbon Remover & Degreaser

Concentrated Liquid Detergent – Biodegradable.

Suitable and safe on various Ferrous and non-Ferrous Metals


OPTIMA | 2001CR™ Aqueous Carbon Remover & Degreaser is a heavy-duty, multi-substrate, non-Emulsifying Aqueous-based Carbon Remover "Soot" & Degreaser with a complete corrosion inhibition package. A rapid removal of heavy organic and inorganic soils. Oils and cutting fluids will separate from the product. They can be skimmed off quickly, resulting in a much longer shelf life (wipe, spray, immersion with or without ultrasonic cavitation) with a complete corrosion inhibition package.

Black Carbon, also known as "Soot," is part of fine particulate air pollution which contributes to climate. The complex mixture of particulate matter from incomplete combustion is often called soot. Carbon results from insufficient engine combustion and exhaust systems generated and emitted by aircraft, locomotive, automotive, truck "transportation," break padding, fossil fuels, agriculture, and many other means of transportation and manufacturing. Complete combustion would turn all carbon in power into carbon dioxide (CO2), but burst which has never been completed; it will create CO2 plus carbon monoxide "CO," volatile organic compounds "VOC," and organic carbon and black carbon particles, all are formed in the process.
