CARY, N.C.—Lord Corp. has developed a chemical stripper designed to save time, lower toxic waste disposal and reduce labor costs.

The firm's LokRelease 800 series adhesive stripping solution is a chemical cleaning product designed to remove adhesive products used in chemical manufacturing tanks, storage vessels, baths, pumps and transfer lines.

The product allows accumulated material to be removed without being dissolved, balancing dispersion, polarity and hydrogen bonding to swell dried-on adhesives.

Lord said traditional products dissolve stuck-on adhesives, but LokRelease 800 caked-on material swells and falls off in large chunks that can be filtered from the solution. The cleaning solution can be recycled when contaminated media filters out, resulting in the disposal of significantly less hazardous waste and eliminates manual power washing/scrubbing of tanks.
