NXT SOLV 400

NXT SOLV 400

Description

NXT SOLV 400 is a proprietary ketal ester solvent. The materials are bio-derived from cellulosic feedstock and are a sustainable replacement for a number of materials including glycol ether acetates, alcohols and d-limonene.

Performance

NXT SOLV 400 has low volatility and meets many low vapour pressure (LVP-VOC) exemptions. It is non-flammable. It has an excellent EH&S profile, is non-toxic and non-sensitising, which complements its outstanding performance.

NXT SOLV 400 has strong solvency, bringing difficult ingredients into formulation with low to no foaming. It is a clear liquid with a low odour profile. It can stabilise formulations and reduce the risk of phase separations, even in concentrated solutions. It can also reduce the viscosity and improve the freeze-thaw properties in concentrates. It has outstanding performance in aqueous hard surface cleaning and degreasing. Its powerful stain-cutting ability makes it applicable for hard and soft surfaces. SV388 compatibilises oil and water without the use of surfactants and enhances phase stability in aqueous solutions.

Applications

NXT SOLV 400 may be used in a broad array of applications including, degreasers, carrier or process solvents, cleaners, detergents and many others.
