Permatex Fast Orange Hand Cleaner now incorporates MircroGel Technology, a polymer emulsion synthetic solvent that eliminates the need for citrus (orange oil) or petroleum base solvents, while continuing to deliver effective cleaning power.
Infused with the MicroGel Technology, Permatex says Fast Orange is very effective at removing the toughest dirt and stains, including resins, oil, grease, tar, grime, soil, epoxies, paint, adhesives, and gasket sealants.
The use of MircroGel Technology also helps Permatex Fast Orange Hand Cleaner to easily meet new VOC regulations well in advance of the EPA 2013 compliance deadline, which restricts the use of citrus-based (orange oil) solvents.
“While other manufacturers chose to substitute their citrus base with a petroleum solvent, we decided to take an innovative approach and developed our MicroGel formula,” said Diane Phelan, Permatex director of marketing. “Although petroleum can be an effective cleaner, it is not biodegradable, tends to leave an odor, and can cause dry skin.”
