Heavy Duty Biodegradable “Clean-in-Place” Degreaser

General Description

DG-165 is a water-based blend of nonionic surfactants, chelators and penetrants formulated for general cleaning of all types of surfaces not affected by water. DG-165 is an excellent oil emulsifying degreaser with strengths varying with the degree of dilution with water. DG-165 is formulated to be diluted with water and used as a “clean-in-place” detergent for heavy oily deposits. DG-165 is non-toxic, does not contain any caustics, solvents, or any EPA rated hazardous ingredients. DG-165 is easily rinsed with water leaving no residue.


DG-165 can be applied by almost any means including mops, rags or spray equipment. When diluted above 20:1, DG-165 is a very effective spray and wipe cleaner for heavy oily soils on equipment. When used below 20:1, DG-165 is a fast penetrating degreaser that rinses easily with water leaving no residue.
