Cleaning isn’t much fun, especially when you don’t have the right products. If you need to clean grease, oil and grime then a degreaser should be your go-to. Degreasers are there to minimise wiping and scrubbing to do the job quickly. Many degreasers are water-based solvents that break apart the contaminants with ease. Degreasers are used for both industrial and commercial applications.
A spill kit is an essential part of any Australian workplace that uses hazardous chemicals and hydrocarbons. Working with such materials carries a risk of spills. These spills can be harmful to you, your staff and the environment. So, it’s important to have a plan in place in case this happens. It’s also a legal requirement to have a spill kit. At Ecospill we lead the way in industrial spill kit supply and training. We are passionate about safety in the workplace.
As the name suggests a degreaser is used to remove tough materials. These can include grease, oils, corrosion inhibitors, fingerprints, handling soils, cutting fluids and more. These contaminants cannot be removed with normal cleaning products. Degreasers are usually water-based solvents. They mean minimal scrubbing and wiping. Degreasers aim to dissolve the contaminant as quickly as possible.
