    Innovating at the intersection of science, technology and consumer trends, Univar Solutions partners with customers and suppliers to create high-performing cleaning products and sustainable formulations.


    In metal treatment and finishing operations, the degreasing phase is very important for processing operations such as pickling, passivation, electropolishing, anodizing, electroplating, mechanical finishing.

    The chemical nature of the degreasing substance is very importance for performance, cost and safety of the operation, regulatory compliance, and environmental respect. There are many different solutions in the market to remove organic soils (oils, fat, waxes) and even silicones.

    Lambiotte offers efficient solvents to remove difficult organic soils and silicones from many metal surfaces when water based solutions are not efficient or fast enough.

    Lambiotte acetals provide many benefits in cleaning operations thanks to its low surface tension, high solvent and degreasing power, quick drying time, miscibility with water and synergy with surfactants and numerous organic solvents. Beyond that they have a better Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) classification than senior popular solvents in the market as shown below.
