Aquus CL-One Water Based Cleaner

Concentrated water based cleaner for all applications in manufacturing, engineering and general maintenance.

Aquus CL-One cleaner is a new formulation designed to deal with all cleaning applications encountered in manufacturing and engineering. It reduces time and costs by removing the need for multiple cleaning products usually needed to deal with the challenges presented by the wide range of soils, oils and other contaminants which need to be removed. Safe for the environment and users, contains no solvents and is biodegradable within 30 days. Typical applications in industry are discussed below but many more will be experienced in day-to-day operations. With only one product for all cleaning applications incorrect selection or dangerous uses can be avoided.

Concentrated Aquus CL-One chemistry is activated by water, varying concentration levels allows the most economical solution to be chosen for specific applications from parts cleaning to surface preparations for finishing or heavier soiling on process machines all from one product. Some of the hundreds of applications are discussed below.


Ideally suited for cleaning protective coatings, grease and soils from new or used parts. Aquus CL-One can be used in parts washing equipment or dipping tanks without modifications and leaves no residue after drying. Oil and grease separate from the water and coalesces on the surface of the cleaning solution which can then be skimmed off for recovery and recycling. Precipitated solids free of hydrocarbons can be removed by settlement or in filtration systems. The cleaning solution can be reused continuously within its chemical parameters for efficient and economical use.


Aquus CL-One is remarkably efficient removing oils, greases, and accompanying dirt from most surfaces. It can be applied by wiping surfaces, mopping or in rotary floor cleaning machines, low or high-pressure spray. Aquus CL-One is also an effective cleaner in industrial kitchens removing grease and baked on deposits on internal surfaces of ovens and trays. For maintenance of machines, engines etc oil and grease is easily removed pre and post-assembly making inspection and repair easier, quicker and cheaper by returning equipment to use.


Aquus CL-One is an excellent choice for cleaning mild steel and ferrous metal parts which are not painted immediately. Process oils and grease on the parts protect the surfaces from changes in humidity but once removed flash rusting can occur while drying. Aquus CL-One prevents this leaving an invisible barrier on the metal surfaces providing extended corrosion protection during storage, fabrication or assembly before finishing. The barrier film can be painted over without additional rinsing and without affecting adhesion of paint or powder coatings. Various cleaning systems can be used, including hand wiping, dip tanks and pressure washing.
