Citra-Safe® Cleaner

CITRA-SAFE® cleaner was developed for use in the aerospace industry, as a low-volatility substitute for Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK), Trichloroethylene, Toluene, and blends of MEK and Toluene.
CITRA-SAFE® is made especially for surface preparation, general solvent cleaning, and cleaning prior to sealing. It is a plant based, bioderived solvent. In addition to reducing or
eliminating the use of HAPs and VOCs, the use of CITRA-SAFE® improves worker health and safety versus traditional solvents. Cleaning will result in a residue-free surface that is fully
prepared for paint and sealant applications.
