Updated Jul 6, 2011

Gunk

Fleets seeking “green” shop solutions now have an alternative to petroleum-based cleaners and degreasers. RSC Bio Solutions has a new line of green shop cleaners and solvents, including its new Gunk Powered by SafeCare and Liquid Wrench Powered by EnviroLogic industrial cleaners, degreasers, and lubricants.

The Gunk Powered by SafeCare products include Truck and Equipment Wash, Heavy Duty Degreaser, Universal Parts Washing Fluid, and a General Purpose Cleaner and Degreaser. The Liquid Wrench Powered by EnviroLogic line features Penetrating Oil, Jack Oil, Aerial Lift Fluid, and Mobile Equipment Hydraulic Fluid. These new, non-hazardous formulas are the company’s first products to market since launching in 2010 as a biobased platform of Radiator Specialty Company (RSC), the 86-year-old company that houses the Liquid Wrench and Gunk brands under its RSC Chemical Solutions division.

“RSC Bio Solutions is committed to producing biobased cleaners, degreasers and lubricants that provide non-hazardous alternatives for applications where both high performance and safety are essential,” said Mike Guggenheimer, Vice President of Business Development for RSC Bio Solutions. “These new products increase safety and efficiency for our customers because if there is an accidental spill in the workplace, no harm will be done to their employees or to the environment.”

The new product line was created through RSC Bio Solutions’ partnerships with Gemtek Products LLC and Terresolve Technologies Ltd., two leaders in the biobased market. RSC Bio Solutions’ premiere products include:
