Powerful, plant-based cleaner and degreaser

TotalBoat Eco Solvent is a safer and more effective surface prep solvent wipe, cleaner, and degreaser that can be used in place of toxic, hazardous, petroleum-based solvents like acetone, MEK, xylene, and toluene. Use Eco Solvent before painting to remove dirt, grease and surface contaminants more effectively than petroleum-based solvents, so coatings adhere better and last longer. It’s also great for flushing resin lines and cleaning composite molds, laminating equipment, and hand layup tools. Best of all, you’ll save money because TotalBoat Eco Solvent evaporates more slowly than traditional solvents, so it lasts longer.

Anything you can use acetone for, such as tool cleaning or surface prep, you can do faster, better, and safer with TotalBoat Eco Solvent. In addition to acetone, Eco Solvent is an effective, powerful, economical replacement for the following traditional solvents:

  • Xylene
  • Toluene
  • Lacquer thinner
  • Mineral spirits
  • MEK (methyl ethyl ketone)
  • Methylene chloride
  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • MIBK (methyl isobutyl ketone)
  • MPK (methyl propyl ketone)
  • TCE (trichloroethylene)

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there advantages to using TotalBoat Eco Solvent over other solvents?

Yes. TotalBoat Eco Solvent is a safer and more effective surface prep solvent wipe, cleaner, and degreaser that can be used in place of toxic, hazardous, petroleum-based solvents like acetone, MEK, xylene, and toluene.

Eco Solvent evaporates completely, and the evaporation rate is 5-10 times that of traditional petroleum-based solvents. It removes paint, ink, varnishes, uncured resin, epoxies, decals, tree sap, grease, gum residue, and Sharpie marks, and removes uncured resins/paints from a number of substrates. For more information, refer to our technical data sheet.

Can it replace acetone as a thinner for TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy?

No, it should generally not be used as a thinner for consumer products. TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy is designed specifically to be used with Acetone, Denatured Alcohol, or Lacquer Thinner.

What can Eco Solvent be used on?

It is safe to use on Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Latex, Nylon, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, PTFE, Teflon, and Fiberglass.

Can this solvent be used to thin polyurethane adhesive sealants?

No. Eco Solvent is intended for surface prep and clean-up projects only.

Can this solvent be used (ie to replace xylene) for paint spray applications?

No. Eco Solvent is intended for surface prep and clean-up projects only.

Can this solvent be used for cleaning painting tools?

Yes. Eco Solvent is ideal for clean-up, especially paint guns, brushes, rollers, and lines. Use it instead of acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), toluene, lacquer thinner, and xylene.

Can Eco Solvent be used with additional solvents for surface preparation?

In general, it is not a good idea to use multiple solvents unless required as part of a multi-step process.

Can this solvent be used to remove amine blush residue from cured epoxy?

We recommend using warm water and a scotch-brite pad to remove residue, instead of a powerful solvent.

Does it safely remove silicone sealant residue?

Always test in a small area first.

What is the flash point?

The flash point is 56 degrees C, or 133 F.

How should I properly store Eco Solvent?

We recommend storing it in a cool, well-ventilated area away from all sources of ignition and out of direct sunlight. Store in a dry location away from heat. Keep away from incompatible materials. Keep containers closed tightly.
