RST-5 is 95% water based and is a proven cleaning agent for:
RST-5 is a healthier, safer and much more environmentally friendly
alternative to solvents. It is also more cost effective.
RST-5 works differently to normal organic solvents:
Unlike with acetone, uncured resins do not dissolve in RST-5. Instead,
the resin disperses in the RST-5 and separates, sinking to the bottom of
the washing container. The resin sediment can then be removed and
disposed of quickly and easily, leaving the bath of RST-5 free for
You need only to add more RST-5 concentrate from time to time to
keep the cleaning power of the fluid. Compare that to the dangerous, expensive and
environmentally threatening alternative of acetone.
RST- 5 is:
- 100% solvent free
- pH Safe 7.2- 8.5
- Harmless to humans and the environment
- Economical as the solution is recycled, removing solidified resin
- Easy storage
Using RST-5 will reduce users’ chemical waste and associated costs
Reduction of weight
= Reduction of waste
= Reduction of costs
RST-5 may be used to remove resin, paints, grease, oil and ink from a
wide variety of tools and brushes as well as skin and clothing. RST-5
will work with many polymers and users can even clean hands with RST-5.
It is known that acetone and other solvents can actually promote
carcinogens and other toxic chemicals to being absorbed through the skin,
causing damage to various organs and nervous system.
A perfect degreaser:
RST-5 can also be used as a degreaser for metal parts or for cleaning
industrial filter systems. RST-5 works on the same principle, but
instead of sinking, the grease will float to the surface and then can be
easily skimmed off and removed. RST-5 helps to reduce chemical waste
substantially, as only the resin residue must be disposed of.
Customers report savings of 30% or more by decreasing their cleaning costs.
There have been reports that RST-5 is a straight replacement for acetone
and other hazardous organic solvents and can be used in the same way.
This is not entirely accurate. Although there are some similarities in
the cleaning process, you have to remember that RST-5 is
a soap and therefore must be used accordingly. Think of it like
dishes; when using cold water the result is never as good as when using
warm water and a brush. Use RST-5 correctly at 45 degrees Celsius and
keep the pH of the fluid between 7.5 & 8.5 and
the results are truly astonishing.
