System K4 has very different properties from conventional solvents in dry-cleaning.
It is a halogen-free, Organic solvent with a pureness of > 99 % and excellent cleaning performance.
The innovative solvent is not only able to dissolve and absorb lipophilic (fats, greases and oil)
but also hydrophilic soil (water soluble soil). Besides the excellent cleaning power of System
the cleaned textiles also have a pleasant and smooth feel. Noticeable is also minimized
fiber abrasion during the cleaning process and also less creasing. In Europe System K4,
similar to HCS respectively cyclosiloxane D5, underlies the VOC directive, in Germany implemented
by the 31st Federal Emission Protection Ordinance (BImSchV). According to the current status
of legislation in Europe System K4 is neither a hazardous material nor a hazardous substance!
Even after the, as of December 2010, for materials valid CLP classification System K4
still does not require any hazardous labeling on the European market. System K4 is
biodegradable and dermatologically tested with “Very Good“.
The named properties in combination with a very favorable classification within
the framework of the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances are unique and have not been achieved in the past.
The results of pre-market-tests demonstrate that SOLVON K4 has the potential of becoming a paradigm for dry-cleaning.
All advantages at a glance:
- Halogen free.
- Pureness > 99 %.
- Excellent cleaning performance – effective against lipophilic AND hydrophilic soil.
- Easy fi nish and pleasant feel.
- Neither a hazardous material nor a hazardous substance in Europe (CLP).
