MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) has been used for many years in the aviation, automotive and electronics industries.  It is a highly efficient and versatile solvent for surface coatings, adhesives, printing inks, chemical intermediates, magnetic tapes and lube oil dewaxing agents in addition to being a highly efficient degreasing agent for metals.  With many industrial applications it is designed for the specialist, professional user MEK wipes will continue to replace the existing wiping system.

Safer Cleaning With MEK Wipes

The volatility and handling of this solvent during use has been a cause for concern for a number of years along with the VOC (volatile organic compounds) release associated with using liquid dispensing.
Therefore MEK lends itself perfectly for use as a pre-saturated wipe.  By using MEK wipes VOC emissions are reduced by approximately 40%, the storage and handling of the product becomes much more manageable as also does the in-use application.  MEK wipes are the new way to use an existing cleaning agent in a safer way.
We have developed a unique dispensing system that not only dispenses the MEK wipes but is also a UN approved storage vessel for transport.  The product is also available as a refill for the UN dispensing system and is available in the following base non-woven substrates:
  •  DuPont Sontara style 9949; 68gsm ultra low lint spunlace
  •  DuPont Sontara style 9951; 51gsm ultra low lint spunlace
  •  Chicopee Veraclean AMS3819, BMF15-5F approved fabric
