Retain 95% of your solvent chemistry.

Improve Sustainability and Cleaning Costs
The right industrial metal cleaning process can make or break the productivity and profitability of your entire operation. But, today, manufacturers are moving away from highly effective solvent cleaning for more sustainable chemistries.

What if you could refresh, recirculate, and reuse solvent degreasers to effectively clean fats, oils, and grime from precision parts retaining your cleaning efficacy with less environmental impact?

You can with DowClene™.

Dowclene™: The Sustainable Organic Solvent

SAFECHEM® Dowclene™ is the solvent cleaner line that you almost never need to replace, which means less waste – and less cost – for you.

These high performance modified alcohol disinfectant cleaners are stable, low toxicity solvents with a specific formulation for use in closed SAFECHEM cleaning systems. The system is fully contained, and DowClene’s MAXISTAB stabilizers guard against white metal or water based degradation that can prematurely degrade your cleaning solvent.

That means you can reclaim and reuse 95% of your solvent.
Dowclene is certified biocompatible according to DIN ISO 10993-5, 20091 and approved for use in medical and aerospace applications.

Michael Onken, Market Development Manager at SAFECHEM stated: “DOWCLENE 1601™* has the unique properties to remove oils and greases just as effectively as certain polar contaminations like cooling emulsions or solids such as salt, particles and abrasives. This makes it a highly versatile, effective cleaning agent that is used across the most demanding, high-value manufacturing sectors, from aerospace and automobile to medical technology and precision engineering.

“Traditional modified alcohols tend to give rise to organic acids, or don’t react well with sulfurized or chlorinated oils. A distinct advantage of DOWCLENE™* 1601 is that its cleaning process can be optimized and stabilized through the innovative MAXISTAB™ S-Series stabilizers. Not only can the preventive stabilization counteract the effects of organic acids, sulphur compounds, hydrochloric acid and chlorides, it can also extend the lifespan of DOWCLENE™* 1601, reduce the need for bath exchange, and safeguard sensitive parts of the cleaning machine. As a result, users can benefit from a lower cost-in-use due to reduced solvent consumption and maximum process stability, even when cleaning highly chlorinated oils.”
