DEGREASER A (DG-A) is a water-based blend of nonionic surfactants, chelators and penetrants formulated for general cleaning of all types of surfaces not affected by water. DG-A is an excellent oil emulsifying degreaser with strengths varying with the degree of dilution with water. DG-A is suitable for degreasing and decontaminating barges, ships, tanks, vats and for all engine room maintenance.
