SOFTsolvent (KREBS Cleaner580)
The SOFTsolvent (previously known as KREBS Cleaner 580) is a hydrocarbon-based cleaning solvent. The solvent, approved according to directives and endorsed by the Hohenstein Research Institute, has excellent dissolving properties for all kinds of oil and fatty stains. Its effectiveness equals that of 1,1,1 trichloroethane. The mechanical impact of the pulsating spray jet and the fast drying system prevents the creation of stain marks. Compared to 1,1,1 trichloroethane this type of stain remover entails less risk of surface damage. It should be noted that hydrocarbons dry slower than halogenated hydrocarbons, which is why devices with integrated drying facilities, such as the systems of KREBS / KREA Swiss, are recommended. Halogenated hydrocarbons such as 1,1,1 trichloroethane are prohibited, because of their ozone depleting effect.
Dangerous cleaning solvent or not?
SOFTsolvent is not dangerous according to ADR/RID and does not contain substances listed in REACH Candidate list. The flash point is >61 ° C, the ignition point > 200 ° C.
