Degreasing and VOC-Exempt Solvent


Elevance Clean 1200 is a superior-performing degreasing and VOC-exempt solvent outperforms traditional and bio-based solvents for industrial degreasing applications targeted toward heavy manufacturing, transportation maintenance and repair operations (MRO), and industrial food processing. Elevance Clean 1200 is produced from natural oils to create a novel solvent architecture that delivers superior performance. This innovative, bio-based solution achieves sustainability goals while improving cleaning performance in applications such as: 

  • Tough-to-remove soils common to the heavy manufacturing and transportation MRO sectors — industrial grade complex greases (e.g., lithium, molybdenum disulfide), paraffin waxes, automotive lubricants, metalworking fluids and corrosion-preventive oils.
  • Tough-to-clean soils affecting industrial food processing operations — hardened and fluid animal and plant lipids, and cooking greases and oils.
Elevance Clean 1200 can be used as a pure solvent, blended with other solvents or emulsified with the addition of surfactants to provide semi-aqueous systems for a variety of industrial degreasing applications where superior performance and an improved environmental profile is desired. In addition, Elevance Clean 1200 can be used in mechanical and touchless (immersion) cleaning applications, and its specific product attributes include:
  • Outperforming standard degreasing formulations in the market at neutral pH (6-9), eliminating the need for highly caustic cleaning products, demanding and time-consuming personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, and the need to preserve sensitive metal substrates.
  • Surpassing the solvency power of d-limonene, other terpenes and esters including soy methyl esters and dibasic esters, as measured on the Kauri-butanol (Kb) scale.
  • Degreasing up to two-to-three times more effectively and more quickly in metal cleaning when compared to Aromatic 150, d-limonene, methyl soyate and other standard solvents.
  • Demonstrating excellent performance in non-mechanical immersion testing, outperforming Aromatic 150, d-limonene, methyl soyate and other standard solvents.

Elevance Clean 1200 also meets restrictive environmental requirements, a key benefit as VOC requirements continue to become more stringent globally and a growing number of aromatic solvents appear on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Toxics Release Inventory (TRI).  Elevance Clean 1200 meets the following requirements:

  • VOC exempt (40 CFR 59.203 - Standards for consumer products)
  • TSCA listed and REACh registered
  • California AQMD LVP-VOC
  • Readily biodegradable (by OECD method)Non-flammable


  • produced from natural oils
