Chemetall Oakite Products Effectively Remove Traditional and Polymerized Asphalt

New Providence, NJ - Chemetall Oakite, a leader and innovator in surface treatment chemistries, has designed a product line to meet the cleaning needs of the Road Paving and Maintenance industries.

Oakite® 12 is an effective asphalt release agent. Because it is utilized in low concentrations, Oakite® 12 is cost effective. When applied to a surface before coming into contact with asphalt, Oakite® 12 acts like a lubricant to allow the asphalt to slide off without sticking.

For tar asphalt removal, customers trust Oakite® 214 M. A preferable alternative to diesel fuel or naphthalene, Oakite® 214 M can be used inside the maintenance area to bring trucks and equipment back to metal quickly and easily. For polymer asphalt removal, Chemetall Oakite created Ardrox® 6076. Made from natural citrus, Ardrox® 6076 effortlessly cuts through polymerized asphalt, and does not add any environmental impact.

To remove soils from hot oil heat transfer systems, Chemetall Oakite has developed a simple two-stage chemical cleaning process. Using Oakite® 214 M or DZL, Oakite® 85 or Gardacid P 4462 and Oakite® 77 or Dynadet will remove carbonized oil and scale.

In addition to supplying the right products for asphalt removal, Chemetall Oakite also offers the equipment, such as Asphalt Release Spray-Alls, Airless Foamers & Compressed Air Foamers and Rapid Drive thru Asphalt Release Systems, needed to make the job easy.
