The best remover to clean water-based adhesives

Industrial adhesives are used by thousands of different companies across a number of industries, ranging from packaging, woodworking, to graphic art and road signage.

There are a multitude of glues available on the market that work well depending on the job they are being used to do. A popular glue is water-based adhesive, which is a liquid or semi-liquid glue used to bond one surface to another. Water based adhesives are supplied as pre-mixed solutions or formulated as dry powders which producers must mix with water to obtain adhesive properties.

Issues begin to arise when adhesive glue residue gets into various types of machinery, conveyor belts, chain floors and other vital parts of factory work. These production facilities can get polluted by glue residue, which in turn negatively affects the functioning of these machines and the quality of the products they produce. Cleaning these via volatile and corrosive solvents is harmful to the environment and is not user-friendly.

Gluetex NF - Commercial Glue, Adhesive & Label Cleaner and Remover

While there are many water-based adhesive solvents available, ranging from DIY options such as paint thinner (a hazardous solution that is harmful when inhaled) to aggressive lyes.

How to use Gluetex NF to remove water-based adhesives

Gluetex is water dilutable from 1:1 to 1:50, depending on the degree and kind of water-based adhesive you are wanting to remove. We advise that you contact your product advisor to enquire about the degree of dilution necessary for Gluetex to work as well as possible on your specific machinery. Please note that Gluetex becomes visible after application as most glues turn white while dissolving, after which they can be easily wiped away. This is not anything to worry about, this means that the adhesive glue is being removed!

Gluetex can be applied via spraying, brushing or plunging.

  • Plunging: submerge the object requiring cleaning into Gluetex and let it sit until the water based adhesive glue has been dissolved. Once clean to your desired standards, remove the object and rise with water, then wipe dry.
  • Spraying: spray machinery requiring cleaning using a suitable dilution, leave to soak and then rinse with water or wipe with a moist sponge or cloth.
  • Brushing: use a brush to apply a layer Gluetex to whatever you need cleaned of water based adhesive glue, let it soak and rinse Gluetex and the pollutant adhesive with a moist sponge or cloth.

Using Gluetex safely to remove water-based glues

If using Gluetex to remove water based adhesive glues on glass, ensure to rinse with water immediately. If using on aluminium, make sure to test Gluetex on a small area first. When used in a pure, undiluted form Gluetex may cause dullness to paint. As Gluetex is safe to use and harmless if used correctly, it is suitable for cleaning any machinery in the food processing industry.
