Castrol CareClean AS 1

Hydrocarbon solvent cleaner


Castrol CareClean™ AS 1 is a fast drying, low odour, isoparaffin based solvent cleaner. It has excellent solvency power
and is compatible with all metal substrates and most non-metal substrates.


CareClean AS 1 has been developed specifically as an alternative to chlorinated as well as traditional high aromatic
hydrocarbon solvent cleaners. CareClean AS 1 delivers excellent solvency for mineral oils, fats, greases and other nonpolar soils typically found in manufacturing. It is particullarly recommended when contact of the parts with water is not

  • Excellent solvency power against animal, vegetable and mineral fats and oils and very low surface tension, allowing
    the fluid to penetrate into difficult to reach areas – improves parts cleanliness and reduces re-work
  • Fast drying, residue-free finish – increases productivity and minimises scrap-rate
  • Based on mild odour isoparaffin solvent with low aromatic content – improves environment for workforce
  • No waste water is produced and solvent can be recycled by distillation – highly effective and yet economical

User Advice
May swell some rubber and plastics during long-term contact.
Should not be used for cleaning live electrical equipment.
It must not be used in open vapour degreasing processes.
It’s not suitable for removing oxidized grease unless making use of mechanical support, such as brushing.
