Industrial Cleaning Agents

Industrial cleaning agents need to be strong and should be able to strip away dirt and debris and other substances that are hard to remove with normal cleaning products. In addition, these industrial cleaning agents need to be safe and they should also be eco-friendly. A good example of these industrial cleaning agents, the water based degreaser serves many useful purposes. The degreaser is usually highly concentrated and so needs to be diluted with water before it can be used.
