One Alkaline Cleaner, So Many Uses

Removing Stubborn Label Adhesives from Plastic Spools

Our customer was taking approximately 1,000 plastic spools at a time and immersing them into a 500-gallon tank to remove labels, but its chemistry literally wasn’t cutting it. Existing chemistry was taking some of the label off the spool – doing the job completely, however, was requiring multiple runs. Worse, it was also a high caustic base chemical with a PH above 14.

Hubbard-Hall tested the Emerald HD 2 in the customers’ label removing tank. The Emerald HD 2 removed the entire label in the first session and was also a safer chemical for workers with a PH of less than 10.5.
