Scavenger cleaning agent to be dropped from range

Posted on 20th Jun 2019 @ 4:48 PM

Last year's implementation of new, EU rules on packing, labelling and chemical substances registration, have made continuing to manufacture SCAVENGER cleaning fluid not profitable for us, so I'm afraid those trade customers who use it for PPE cleaning, Ultra-sound baths and oxygen clean work, will no longer be able to purchase it after June 30th.

I very much hate making a decision to can the best product on the market - one which leaves no crystalline, invasive or toxic residues and which is benign for all elastomers, polymers, light alloys, brass copper and Nickel.

I regret it very much, having spent so much time developing it from a perfect mixture of various chain length, fatty-acid-ethoxylates - but EU rules make its continuance wholly a labour of love and my business needs profit, too.

Also, quantities are a problem since VAT and European taxation has driven most of our chemical industry to China, so that, instead of buying materials in Runcorn or Redcar, we must buy ship-loads from Chinese chemical giants. Made in Europe is just a meaningless, CE label, these days, glued on by an importer, I’m afraid.

Well - There We Are Then.

We will be continuing to make Scavenger for our own use in service work and for the production of our oxygen kits but we are unable any longer to share it with you!
