For many years, degreasers have been formulated with ingredients that pose serious considerations with respect to worker exposure and the environment. These products are frequently blended with strong alkalis and solvents in order to enhance their efficiency in cleaning oily or greasy soils. While effective, these formulations have been and will continue to be the cause of worker injury in the form of skin complications or eye damage. Additionally, their use adversely impacts air quality as a result of volatile solvents which can evaporate into the atmosphere.
