Digesil®NC Conc – 704

DIGESTS CURED SILICONE, OILS, GREASE, ELASTOMER, RUBBER

Catalytic solvent that shears the Si-O bond in the silicone molecule to break down silicone elastomer, rubber, resins as well as oils and greases so that they dissolve in the carrier. The residues can be rinsed away with water or iso-propanol to leave a silicone-free surface. Low solvency for non-silicones means it has little effect on most plastics, paint or powder coating though it will dissolve nylon and butyl. Does not corrode metals and may be used on glass. As the vapour pressure is low, it is not a VOC.
