NuSolv/NuWet SOR Series of Products is Patent Pending

Non-toxic, aqueous, ultrasonic cleaning solution for removal of silicone oils and greases, inks polishing and buffing compounds, oils, fingerprints, drawing compounds, metalworking fluids, pastes, organic residues and adhesives from a wide variety of substrates.  Safe for use on all metals, including Aluminum.  NuWet SOR-A is the first of its kind silicone fluid solubilizer/cleaner that is a water based/aqueous formula.


NuGeneration Technologies’ NuWet SOR-A is a non-toxic, aqueous cleaning solution used to remove silicone oils and greases from a wide variety of substrates.  NuWet SOR-A is also highly effective in removing inks, polishing and buffing compounds, greases, oils, chlorinated oils, fingerprints, drawing compounds, metalworking fluids, pastes, organic residues, and adhesives.  NuWet SOR-A is safe for use on most plastic and metal substrates, including Aluminum.

Performance Characteristics of NuWet SOR-A

NuWet SOR-A was formulated to be used at both ambient and elevated temperatures.  NuWet SOR-A contains a highly specialized, proprietary mixture of solvents and surfactants that allow tenacious silicone oils and greases to be penetrated and stripped away from substrates, which remaining isolated and dispersed in solution in order to prevent their redeposition.  This mechanism allows NuWet SOR-A to be concurrently effective on a wide range of soils. 
NuWet SOR-A contains no toxic solvents, and has only a mildly alkaline pH, making it the intelligent choice for worker safety, and allowing used baths to be disposed of without a dangerous goods classification.  NuWet SOR-A is effective, cost competitive, and safe alternative to traditional silicone oil and grease removal solutions that utilize toxic, aggressive solvents.  

Directions for Use

NuWet SOR-A is used at 10-25% concentration and should be used at ambient temperatures up to 75 °C (167 °F) for 2 to 10 minutes, in ultrasonics.  The parameters can vary due to the type and extent of soils to be removed.  After the washing cycle, parts should be rinsed thoroughly in water and dried.  Parts may be alcohol-rinsed in order to facilitate drying and water displacement.

Benefits of NuGenTec NuWet SOR-A

  • Non-toxic, aqueous solution that removes silicone oils and greases.
  • Disperses removed silicone oils and greases, preventing redeposition.
  • Safe for use on most plastic and metal substrates, including Aluminum.
