KYZEN Establishes New Standard with VOC-free Solvent

Sep 08, 2016

KYZEN, a global leader in environmentally responsible cleaning technologies, introduces a new line of solvent blends designed for high reliability in a wide spectrum of industrial cleaning applications. With critical focus on meeting increasing regulations and high quality output, KYZEN’s new solvents have affectionately been dubbed “green and clean,” by many in the industry.

From “vapor only” to immersion, ultrasonics and turbulation, these innovative formulations meet or exceed almost any process requirements in place today. KYZEN’s in-house application labs in the United States and around the world help process engineers by verifying “live manufacturing” results for specific parts, materials, soils and process prior to any product commitment. This also ensures that manufacturers can meet their quality standards with required environmental compliance, worker safety and superior technical support.

KYZEN solvents consistently deliver desirable cleaning performance on a wide range of soils including oils, greases, waxes and other fluids. The combined features of low surface tension, non-flammability, and superior solvency maximize cleaning strength to get the job done. Designed to replace AK225, nPB, TCE and other undesirable solvents, KYZEN’s breakthrough clean and green chemistries include:

  • Metalnox M6920 – Classified as a non-VOC chemistry, M6920 is non-flammable and has ultra-low MRI and global warming potential of 1. The chemistry is compatible with stainless steel, copper, iron and aluminum with or without excess water, and has excellent degreasing qualities for most lubes/oils. With PEL limits of 800 ppm, M6920 is a great choice for metals, plastics and elastomers as an effective and safe solvent.
  • Metalnox M6922 – A VOC compliant, M6922 effectively solubilizes ionic contaminants in hydrocarbon-based oils, water soluble soils and electronic fluxes. M6922 also has excellent degreasing qualities for most lubes and oils and a superior solvency for silicone fluids. With ultra-low Global Warming Potential of 1 and low surface tension rating of 12.7 dyne/cm (wettability), M6922 is a great choice to replace harsh chemistries while providing a safe and effective solvency.
  • Metalnox M6900 – Is a non-flammable chemistry used in immersion processes or “vapor” only process. M6900 has a low Global Warming Potential and PEL limits of 220 ppm. This chemistry helps conserve energy due to low operating temperature. It is effective in most metals and has excellent degreasing capabilities.

“KYZEN has pioneered high-reliability aqueous and solvent cleaning fluids for 26 years. We like giving manufacturers high-performance outcomes, while being safer for people and our environment. We know the industry has been looking for this kind of innovation in solvents and processes for a long time. As part of our VaporDegreasing 20|20 TM family of solutions, I’m particularly proud that we’ve set such a high bar and the new standard for this process,” said Tom Forsythe, Vice President KYZEN.

KYZEN is a recognized global pioneer in the development, manufacturing and distribution of high-precision cleaning solutions. KYZEN is renowned for its aqueous cleaners, and for its solvent cleaners, corrosion inhibitors and other specialized products for metal finishing and parts cleaning. KYZEN’s VaporDegreasing 20|20 TM processes and chemistry solutions are the results that are equal to or better than older standards, such as AK225 and nPB, but without the environmental tradeoffs — KYZEN is bringing “green and clean” to vapor degreasing operations.


KYZEN is a global leader in providing environmentally responsible, RoHS compliant precision cleaning chemistries for industries ranging from metal finishing, aerospace, medical, automotive and more to electronics and advanced packaging. Since its founding in 1990, KYZEN’s innovative cleaning technologies, scientific expertise and customer support have been repeatedly recognized with the industry’s most prestigious awards.
