  • Owing to the good wetting effect the product requires only small additions of surfactants to fine-tune the cleaner
  • Miscible in all proportions with polar and hydrophilic solvents e. g. water, alcohols, esters and ketones
  • No crystallization or phase separation occurs at temperatures down to - 30 °C
  • Low foaming
