Technical details

Field of application

OPAL 5000 is particularly suitable for degreasing and cleaning parts in the service and repair sector. Due to its relatively slow drying time, parts are temporarily protected from corrosion. As drying takes more time than cleaners containing VOC, for urgent cases we recommend using a drying aid, such as a hot-air blower or compressed air.
