JMN Specialties, Inc. has expanded its BIOCLEAN line of environmentally responsible cleaners with the introduction of a powerful and versatile new product that outperforms leading citrus-based cleaners.

With its patent-pending formulations, the BIOCLEAN line of cleaners are an efficient micro-emulsion that holds more surface oils and dirt, and then breaks down efficiently and completely.

As a business owner, you are probably wondering why would you need another cleaner when there are already so many out there. BIOCLEAN cleaners are different, and JMN Specialties is the first in the industry to introduce a truly safe and biodegradable micro-emulsion cleaner. The difference is the power of the cleaning while being safe to use and safe for the environment.

So what is a micro-emulsion cleaner?

A micro-emulsion cleaner is a unique mixture of water, organic solvents and surfactants.

How is a micro-emulsion cleaner different from an emulsion cleaner?

A micro-emulsion generally has a particle size of less than 1 micron and an emulsion generally has a particle size of greater than 10 microns. An emulsion forms when two immiscible liquids, usually water and oil, are mechanically agitated so that one liquid forms droplets in the other liquid.
On the other hand, a micro-emulsion forms spontaneously and the solvent portion of the micro-emulsion is not intermixed with the water portion, but rather it is an external phase making the solvent and water a continuous phase, thus enhancing the cleaning.

What is special about a micro-emulsion cleaner?

It has properties that are not exhibited by solvents, blends and emulsions. The properties include:
  • Hydrophilic and lipophilic balance which means that it cleans both water-loving and oil-loving contaminants.
  • Solvents and surfactants work in synergy as a continuous phase.

Why should you purchase this product?

  1. It is safe to use and store, is nonflammable, and does not contain chlorinated solvents.
  2. Major components are biodegradable.
  3. Compatible with oily water separator filters at much higher concentrations than other cleaners, it works faster to produce superior results whether it is used: neat or diluted; with seawater or fresh; heated or at room temperature; or on ferrous or nonferrous metals.

With today's strict regulations concerning employee safety and the environment, we make safety a priority by helping our customers comply with the objectives of the ISM (International Safety Management) code.

BIOCLEAN cleaners are the answer if you are having difficulty cleaning heavy-duty greases, baked-on oils, and carbonized deposits. This pleasant-scented product is well suited for cleaning bilges, tank tops, machinery, tools and parts, as well as general deck and engine room maintenance.
