Solvent Cleaners!? There's a lot to be worried about...

“No matter what you do, your job is to tell your story.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

It's a good thing our products are Solvent-Free... no more concerns for your employee's safety! Formulated to meet food industry standards, the Gard Chemicals' collection of products from GlueGuard, are the optimal replacement for the traditional hazardous and flammable solvent solutions.

For instance, our new HAZFREE is a specialized, non-flammable formulation developed for use within the print and packaging industry. HAZFREE will quickly remove cured UV varnish, lacquer and adhesive residues from printing presses and associated machinery components. Available in 5L (4 per case) bottles

Case Study

A company in the UK had struggled for years with adhesive being "walked" across the factory. They had used MEK to clean this area but with the obvious health hazards and the time constraints caused by MEK's quick flash time caused them to ban it from use. This meant the factory was forced to now let the adhesive build up to the point it could be physically scraped off. Clearly, this was not ideal and we introduced our HAZFREE solution to them

Product Replaced:     Solvent Based Adhesive

Method Replaced:     MEK / Physical Scraping

New Method:    Let HAZFREE soak on the surface for 2-3 minutes and agitated it with a stiff brush. For larger areas they ran a small floor scrubber across the surface.

Health & Safety Benefits: Much safer than MEK especially in confined spaces (under machines)

Results:  100% - The picture speaks for itself
