LORD® LokRelease™ 800 Adhesive Stripping Solution

Product Overview of LokRelease™ 800

LORD® LokRelease™ 800 solution is a chemical stripper designed for removal of Flocklok®, Chemlok® and other adhesive products used in storage vessels, baths, pumps, and transfer lines. This stripping solution allows accumulated material to be removed without being dissolved. LokRelease™ 800 adhesive stripping solution is specially formulated to create swell in the dried-on adhesive, causing material to fall off in large chunks which can then be filtered out of the stripping solution.

Features and Benefits of LokRelease™ 800

  • Environmentally Recommended: Provides a less aggressive solvent blend than typical cleaners; eliminates need for EPA strippers with special handling requirements.
  • Economical: Provides more effective removal process than standard solvent cleaning; solution can be recycled, reducing waste-disposal costs.
  • Process Enhancer: Eliminates need for most mechanical removal processes; allows for unattended cleaning of processing equipment, reducing amount of time spent cleaning vessels.
