Quality products start with quality ingredients which is why Armite uses SHELL OIL COMPANY as one of its main suppliers. This solvent is hydrocarbon-based solvent and is used as detergents and cleaners for painted and unpainted metal parts. However, the compatibility between existing paints & solvents should be verified prior to use.
Use on frozen or rusted fittings, bolts or nuts. Helps dissolve rust allowing for disassembly.
It is recommended that this solvent should be used with appropriate recalculated parts washer.
Type II (low odor with high flash point) is intended for use where a solvent with a higher flash point is desired. It is recommended over Type I for safety and regulatory reasons. When Type II solvent is used indoors, ventilation should be sufficient to prevent the accumulation of vapors above the allowable exposure limits.
