SC-1000 Aqueous Cleaner Concentrate 


DESCRIPTION: SC-1000 Aqueous Cleaner Concentrate is our most versatile and powerful  non-ionic surfactant system used in a variety of industrial and commercial  applications. Comprised of fatty alcohols, free fatty acids and fatty esters,  SC-1000 is a colloidal solution that creates a unique hydrocarbon release  agent that can tolerate tremendous soil load. The powerful micelle cleaning  action of SC-1000 will cause long chain hydrocarbon soils including fats,  greases, oils, proteins and sugars to repel from the surface so that they can  be rinsed away with water, without damaging or reacting with the cleaning  surface. SC-1000 is not a typical caustic detergent or petroleum solvent,  therefore it will not damage or react with the cleaning surface. SC-1000 meets with the following requirements:  

 USEPA Design for the Environment (DfE)

 USEPA National Oil & Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) 1 

 USEPA Vessel General Permit (VGP) Compliant 

 USDA BioPreferred® Program 

 EU REACH Pre-registered 

 CEFAS Reg. 25334 North Sea 

 USDA A1 General Cleaning & L1 Drain/Sewer Acceptable 

 California’s SCAQMD as a Clean Air Solvent. 

 OSHA 29-CFR Ch. XVII 1910.1200 and 40 CFR Ch. 1, Subparts C & D 

 USEPA 600, 4-90, 027 for aquatic toxicity 

 USEPA 601 & 602 for VOC testing 

 NSN 6850-01-474-1273 (5 gal.); 6850-01-474-1311 (55 gal.) 

1SC-1000™ is on the USEPA NCP Product Schedule under Surface Washing Agents. This listing does not mean that  EPA approves, recommends, licenses, certifies or authorizes the use of SC-1000 on an oil discharge. The listing means only that data has been submitted to EPA as required by Subpart J of the NCP § 300.915. 

INSTRUCTIONS: Rinse surface to remove loose particulate soil before cleaning. The product  should be diluted with water depending on the specific application. Less  product may be necessary with increased temperature, dwell time or agitation.  Rinse with water to remove soil and residual product. Water-break or sheeting  action should be observed on smooth hard surfaces.
