How to safely remove 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.

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. While these are effective in removing water-based adhesives, they are harmful to the environment and can damage your health.

At Eco-point, we have developed a powerful industrial cleaner containing natural soda, developed for the external cleaning of glue and labeling machines and their surroundings.

Gluetex NF is eco-friendly, biodegradable, and harmless to you and the environment. It is a concentrated water-dilutable cleaning agent based on fully biodegradable and naturally occurring ingredients.

Gluetex meets all demands that are put on cleaning agents for materials that can make contact with food in the food processing industry. We have specially developed Gluetex for cleaning labeling machines and their surroundings in bottling rooms, breweries, and any other industrial cleaning needs that may arise.

Gluetex is not only environmentally friendly but also a powerful cleaning agent that works.

How to use Gluetex NF to remove water-based adhesives

Sustainable solution

Gluetex NF is the solution for effectively cleaning glue machines in a user friendly and safe way. This water-based adhesive cleaner is also a safe substitute for traditional thinners, tri and aggressive lyes. 

Areas of application

Bonding equipment (external surfaces) and surrounding environment.

Tools contaminated with adhesives.

Floors and walls that are contaminated with adhesives.

Basically, everything that is contaminated with hot and cold glue adhesives.

Solution areas

Production equipment becomes contaminated with residual adhesives. Machines, parts, conveyor belts, chains, floors, etc. become contaminated with adhesive residues. Bottles intended for reuse must be cleaned in such a way that no adhesive residues are left behind. Cleaning with harmful volatile solvents or aggressive alkalis is a dangerous and ARBO-unfriendly job.

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.

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 aluminum, 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.
