Water Based Latex Stripper and Latex cleaner : Latexsol
6840 is used for paint removal of cured & Uncured Latex & Epoxy coatings from a variety of substrates
Latex Remover, Urethane Stripper, Epoxy Paint Stripper-6840 Specially formulated for paint removal of Latex and Epoxy from Aluminum and other substrates
DESCRIPTION: NEW Method
: Latexsol 6840 is used in heated tank and
will help you clean latex container .
A common test
for determining whether a dried sample of
paint is oil-based or latex-based is to
contact the sample with xylene. If the paint
sample is latex-based, the sample will
dissolve for easy removal. If the sample is
oil-based, the sample will remain intact.
Because of this selective solvency, xylene
has been used as a commercial latex-based
paint remover, alone or together with other
components. However, because it is an
aromatic compound, xylene also poses a
significant health and environmental risk.
Latexsol 6840 is a new latex paint remover
which mimics xylene in terms of its
selective removal of latex-based paints but
which is more benign from a health and
are typically composed of polymer particles
and pigments emulsified in water. When
applied to a surface, the water carrier
evaporates and the polymer particles
coalesce to form a coherent,
pigment-containing film. Most latex paints
are formulated with acrylic polymers
(polymers and copolymers of acrylic acid,
acrylic esters and acrylonitrile) which may
include ionic cross-linkers to enhance
bonding of individual polymer particles in
the coalesced film.
In a typical oil-based paint, however, the
film-forming specie is composed of a natural
and/or synthetic polymer dissolved in a
suitable organic solvent such as mineral
spirits, turpentine or the like. When
applied to a surface, the organic solvent
evaporates and the polymer deposits on the
surface as a film. Further polymerization
and/or ethylenic cross-linking (curing)
often occurs to make the film coherent.
Because of these differences in film-forming
mechanisms, oil-based paints once dried and
cured are usually stronger and tougher than
their latex-based counterparts. Accordingly,
latex paints are easier to remove than
oil-based paints, which explains why xylene
and analogous materials can effectively
remove latex-based paints but not oil-based
directed primarily to removing dried
Latexsol 6840 In addition to removing dried
latex-based paints can also be used to
remove a wide variety of other lipophilic
materials.. In addition, Latexsol will
remove adhesives, inks, chewing gum, tars,
greases, glues, animal fats, vegetable oils,
tree sap and other lipophilic soils.
Tank Trucks and
IBC Tote Container cleaning: Latex Paint
Stripper, Latex Paint Remover ,Latex Paint cleaning
A dry major latex shipping container isn't hopeless but there is only a little chance it can be cleaned with existing chemical process at tank truck cleaning facilities. Latex acrylic paints are basically water, pigment, and polymer resins. Although quite easy to remove when fresh, (steam extraction methods,) they do become almost impossible to remove once dried.
Removes latex paints by lifting film from substrate
Works well on coated carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum
Minimal airborne health hazard
Low vapor pressure reduces VOC's,
Extended bath life compared to solvent.
Economical to use
High employee acceptance, no offensive odor.
Latexsol 6840 is engineered for high pressure
recirculation spray and soak tank applications.
Latexsol 6840 is used by diluting with water and can be used at concentration form 20 % to 50 % by volume with water @ 140 F to 170 F
Operate at a concentration of 20% to 35% by
volume with water depending upon age and
thickness of Latex. Completely set up latex over
1 week old will require a concentration of 35%
Latexsol and balance water. There should be no
caustic present in the wash solution as it will
have a negative effect on the cleaning process.
Operating temperature is 150 degrees F to 170
degrees F. This wash solution should be
recirculated and reused for long bath life.
Filtering will also extend the bath life.
1. 11/24/09 Hello, Here at our cleaning station
we often cleans alkyd, latex, resin and
polyester. Sometimes the product has dried out
and then we have to board the tank and clean it
manually. Do you have any products that will
make this job any easier? Tank
3/1/10 We have received the Latexsol 6840,
and it works fantastic.
2. I need to purchase Latexsol 6840 . I have
over forty tank trailers with dried in latex
that needs to be removed. Each tank trailer is
between 6300 and 7200 gallons. I would like to
try a gallon of it before I buy in bulk. I
attempted to use your website's shop online
feature but it seemed to be having problems
