CLEAN SPIRIT-THE SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO WHITE SPIRIT

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Introducing CLEAN SPIRIT, a revolutionary water based alternative to White Spirit, Turpentine Substitute and Brush Cleaner. Due to the minimal solvent content, Clean Spirit is safer for the user and to the environment. The mix of high tech components are all readily biodegradable.

 

Clean Spirit can be used to clean both oil and water based paints from brushes, rollers and paint pads. Containing a specialised conditioning agent, paint implements are left feeling soft and supple. Clean Spirit may also be used to remove paint spills from hard surfaces such as worktops, laminate flooring, glass, etc, as well as from textiles such as clothing and carpets. It also makes an excellent degreasing fluid for removing oil and grease from tools. In tests, users stated there was no difference in cleaning qualities between White Spirit and Clean Spirit, and when removing paint from textiles, they thought Clean Spirit performed better.

 

Classified as Low in Volatile Organic Compounds, with a solvent content of below 8%, Clean Spirit is safer for the environment, especially when compared with traditional solvents that are regarded as Very High VOC’s with 100% solvent content. Clean Spirit, carries no Dangerous for the Environment classification.

 

Clean Spirit, is virtually odourless. Normal paint solvents usually have a very strong hydrocarbon smell that most users dislike, especially when using in confined areas. This means when painting internally, there is no requirement to open windows and doors as when using White Spirit, etc.

 

Clean Spirit, is classified as non-toxic, non-flammable and non-corrosive, resulting in a product that is much safer to use. This also means that it carries none of the label warnings of other paint solvents. There is no restriction on the sale of Clean Spirit, and no need for the usual storage precautions associated with White Spirit, etc.

 

In recent years, the instability of world oil prices have resulted in massive price rises for hydrocarbon based solvents traditionally used in the paint industry. As there is only a small volume of solvent in Clean Spirit,costs will be more stable and not vary as widely. Clean Spirit, is also extremely cost effective, currently costing less than White Spirit.

 

Available in 750 ml and 2 litre Pet bottles. Further information can be found on the Frequently Asked Questions sheet in the technical section.

 

1/8 pallet displays are available for a limited period. We also have consumer leaflets available explaining the benefits of Clean Spirit.

 

We have already received listings from the major UK’s DIY multiples so demand is expected to be high. Don’t delay, speak to our sales office on 01482 678737, or your local Area Manager – NOW!
