Oil Eater® Cleaner & Degreaser Original Formula is a highly concentrated, alkaline based cleaner designed specifically to be versatile and powerful. Oil Eater® achieves its cleaning strength through the combined actions of surface tension reduction, coupling ability, builders and alkalinity.
Surface Tension Reduction
Oil Eater® uses a combination of non-petroleum solvents and specially formulated surfactant to lower the surface tension of the water and to penetrate both water soluble and oil soluble soils. Once the surface tension of the water is lowered, more thorough contact of the soiled surface by the cleaner is ac hieved.
Oil Eater® is a very strong coupler. With this capability and its inherent cleaning power, Oil Eater® works to pull oil and water soluble dirt from the soiled surface. Oil Eater’s unique emulsification properties cause the coupling of oil soluble dirt and water. This action keeps the soil suspended in the cleaning solution preventing the redeposit of the soils on the surface being cleaned.
Built for Strength
Oil Eater® uses highly refined chemicals known as builders to improve cleaning strength. These inorganic materials work to disperse solid soils and enhance water softening.
Oil Eater® is a highly alkaline product. This means that the pH of Oil Eater® is above 7.0. Alkalinity is essential to cleaning fats and oils. It works to breakup these soils into small particles. This then allows the other cleaning actions of Oil Eater® to perform more efficiently.
