Solvega 300 is an odourless natural and environmentally friendly industrial and commercial cleaner and degreaser. Based on an esterified natural rapeseed oil, this product removes various oils and fats. Solvega 300 has no hazard labels.
General descriptionSolvega 300 is an ultra user friendly cleaning and degreasing agent. Safe in use, because there are no chlorinated hydrocarbons and aromatics present in the formulation. The product is almost odourless and has no unpleasant smell of oil. Solvega 300 has an effective degreasing action.
Product applicationSolvega 300 is used to clean:
- Machine parts and tools
- Degreasing of metals
- Ball bearings
- Chains and conveyor belts
Due to its solvency power Solvega 300 can be applied as an intensifier in systems with limited solvent ability.
- Solvega 300 has an extremely high flash point: ca. 180°C
- Solvega 300 is free of aromatics and other mineral oil components

- Solvega 300 does not contain chlorinated hydrocarbons such as methylene chloride, 1.1.1 trichloroethane etc.
Solvega 300 can cause neoprene, EPDM and natural rubber to dissolve or swell. For silicone or NBR rubber we advise to test it first. While synthetic materials as PMMA, PE, PP, polycarbonate, polystyrene, polyamide-6 and Viton are relatively insensitive for Solvega 300. If in doubt first try at a less visible place.
Solvega 300 is suitable for the food processing industry. It can play an essential role for food processing companies that have to work according to HACCP standards.
Isega is an independent German research institute that issues certificates for adequacy of cleaning products for the food industry.
Solvega 300 is to be used pure. Solvega 300 can be used by spraying and plunging.
- Spraying: spray directly on the object that is to be cleaned. Leave to soak. Remove remains with a cloth.
- Plunging: plunge the object in Solvega 300. Leave to soak. Take out the object, let it leak out.
Product sector overview
Based on naturally occurring raw materials Eco-Point’s range of high performance, environmental and sustainable industrial cleaning and grease removers are effective, economical, and safe to use. These products are for the cleaning and degreasing of contaminated equipment and environments. Ideal as an engine degreaser, chain degreaser, metal degreaser, parts washers.
Because of their aromatic free formulations, these products are safe to use and odourless and therefore lack the unpleasant smell of traditional products.
Why Choose Eco-Point Grease Removers
Danger to Health & Environment
There are many problems associated with the removal of Grease. These problems occur in many industries e.g. Paint, Construction, Chemical, Woodworking, Furniture manufacture, Ship and Yacht Construction, Interior Construction etc.
The solvents in traditional grease removers contain white spirit and due to the rapid evaporation of solvents, especially in case of insufficient ventilation, create a harmful working environment which is damaging to health.
Eco-Point's solutions you can safely remove all types of grease
- Removal of grease from engines and chains
- Removal of grease from tools and bearings
- Removal of grease from Filters
- Removal of grease from Electrical equipment
Degreasing can be done manually or in a degreasing tray. There are even fully automatic systems available that run a washing program via a pre-set temperature and timer to break down the oils and fats.
Degreasing with benzene and volatile solvents such as thinners
The name 'white spirit' indicates that it can also be used for washing. It is a solvent with substances that are very harmful to the environment. It is flammable and working with benzene can cause health problems. The product is harmful by prolonged contact and by inhalation. During and after use it is therefore recommended to ventilate well, to watch out for fire and to ensure that there are no sparks in the area. This also applies to other volatile solvents such as thinners.
Remove oil and grease
In the automotive and metal industry, heavier contaminants, such as oil and grease, regularly occur. A cleaning method that can be used is ultrasonic cleaning. Ultrasonic sound waves in combination with a cleaning product create small vacuum bubbles (cavitation) in a liquid. When they implode, energy is released that removes the dirt from submerged pieces. This cleans even the smallest spots. Ultrasonic cleaning is a form of automatic cleaning and therefore an attractive cleaning method.
Degrease stainless steel
Stainless steel is a durable material and is used in a wide variety of household and industrial applications. The chrome layer on the material ensures that it is resistant to rust and scale. The amount of chromium also determines how strong the stainless steel is resistant to this. Stainless steel 304 contains less chromium than stainless steel 316. Stainless steel 304 is the most common and with proper maintenance this layer can offer many years of protection. The protective layer can be weakened and damaged by dirt and other pollutants. It is therefore important to regularly clean stainless steel - especially 304 stainless steel - with safe cleaning agents. Be careful with acidic cleaners; these can attack stainless steel material.
Oils, fats and loose dirt give the workplace and the machines an unkempt appearance. Research shows that employees are more productive when they can work in a clean and safe environment.
It is not only unpleasant to have to tinker with dirty parts, but it is also not convenient. Inspecting clean parts yields better results: all defects and problems are visible on a clean product. Good lubrication means less wear and tear, work interruptions, tool retention and less maintenance. Preventing oil and grease pollution is cost effective and preserves materials.
