NuGenTec's Approach to Silicone Oil Removal NuSolv SOR Series. A New Patent Pending Product Line.
As anyone who’s attempted silicone oil removal knows, silicone oils spread a thin film over everything they touch. Because silicone oil is hydrophobic, it requires a bit more than a good scrub to remove. In fact, when using a detergent for silicone oil removal, the silicone oil will avoid the water tenaciously; dropping out of emulsification and redepositing onto the surface.
Because it is difficult to lift silicone oils and keep them in solution, approaches to silicone oil removal are often aggressive, can be dangerous and can cause damage to the material being cleaned.
Silicone Oil Removal: Out With the Old, in With the New.The traditional approach to silicone oil removal alters the material being cleaned and poses hazards to human health. The old generation of silicone oil removal methods use halogenated solvents combined with extremely high or low pH to “activate” the solution and break siloxane bonds. This aggressive approach can damage part components and discolor surfaces.
NuGenTec approached the field of silicone oil removal with the following knowledge about consumer needs:
With these assumptions, NuGenTec formulated three Silicone Oil Removers that are safer, more effective, faster-acting and less costly than any other silicone oil remover on the market.
Using Solvents for Silicone Oil RemovalFor solvent chemistry, NuGenTec’s NuSolv SOR Silicone Oil & Adhesive Remover and NuSolv SOR-C Non-flammable Silicone Oil & Adhesive Remover are the top of the line.
