New cleaning spray for the food and pharmaceutical industries eliminating oil, grease, resin and adhesive

The new Klüberfood NK 1 Z 8-001 cleaning spray removes oils, greases and resins from metal and plastic surfaces

Munich, July 2011 - Klüber Lubrication presents its first surface cleaner and degreaser for the food and pharmaceutical industries, Klüberfood NK 1 Z 8-001 Spray. The newly developed cleaning spray rapidly and thoroughly removes oils, greases and resins from metal and plastic surfaces. The cleaner also reliably removes adhesive residues, e.g. on labelling machines. Klüberfood NK 1 Z 8-001 has been registered by the NSF according to K1 and K3 and therefore complies with FDA 21 CRF and is approved for use as an operating supply in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. NSF registration letters are valid all over the world and confirm the suitability and compatibility of the operating supplies during audits. Therefore, they constitute important compliance documents.

Klüberfood NK 1 Z 8-001 Spray does not contain extremely flammable propellants like butane or propane, but uses a VOC-neutral propellant obtained in a non-polluting way instead. The additional benefit of this propellant is that the active substance content in the spray could be more than doubled, i.e. a very little quantity of the spray is sufficient for a good cleaning effect.

The NSF institute took over the "nonfood compounds listing" registration programme for the food and pharmaceutical industries from the USDA. Category K1 stands for solvent cleaners removing oils and greases. K3 stands for cleaners removing adhesive residues. As K1 and K3 products are solvent-containing operating supplies, they can only be used outside the process area.
