The Lotoxane Range

Lotoxane provides a safer alternative to the hazardous solvents used for general degreasing throughout industry. Highly refined and nonaromatic Lotoxane is used to remove grease, oil, carbon deposits, protective coatings, hydraulic oils and cutting oils from bare or painted metals, plastics and composites.
Odourless and non corrosive in use, Lotoxane® evaporates to leave minimal residue and has therefore been approved to clean effectively without detriment to subsequent coatings. Its very low volatility ensures minimal product loss through evaporation

and enables end-users to achieve real cost-in-use savings whilst complying with the latest VOC emission controls. It is used exclusively by many leading oil and gas producers, engineering and general manufacturing organisations as well as military authorities throughout the world
