Citra-Safe®

Replaces MEK, Toluene and MEK/Toluene Blends

Surface preparation, general solvent cleaning, and cleaning prior to sealing and painting for aircraft. For precision cleaning of metal parts and for ultra-sound cleaning, immersion cleaning, and manual wipe cleaning.

Benefits & Uses

Developed for use in the aerospace industry, CITRA-SAFE® is a low-volatility substitute for Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK), Trichloroethylene, Toluene, and blends of MEK and Toluene. CITRA-SAFE® is made especially for surface preparation, general solvent cleaning, and cleaning prior to sealing.  It is literally a biodegradable solvent replacement for mineral spirits, thinners, and chlorinated solvents. 

The use of CITRA-SAFE® can reduce or eliminate the use of HAPs and VOCs. The use of CITRA-SAFE® improves worker health and safety versus traditional solvents. Cleaning will result in a residue-free surface that is fully prepared for paint or sealant application.
