DEVELOPMENT OF A PHOSPHATE-FREE ALKALINE CLEANER - PAINT STRIPPER

In recent years concern has been expressed about the contents of industrial water discharges. One of the major areas of concern has been with phosphates because of the eutrophication of streams and waterways. Phosphates are commonly used in alkaline cleaners and in alkaline paint strippers to increase efficiency. The report describes the development of a phosphate-free composition which can be used either as a cleaner or as a paint stripper depending on concentration. The composition is suitable for replacing the alkaline cleaner of Specification P-C-436C and both of the paint removers of Specification TT-R-230B.
