Grease Removal

There are many times a user of vacuum grease has the need to remove the grease from a surface. And some of the most popular vacuum greases are indeed the most difficult to remove because of the inability of common laboratory cleaning solvents to remove at least some of these greases.

Indeed the problem can be so exasperating, that greases are often times selected, not necessarily on the basis of their vapor pressure or off- gassing characteristics, but on the basis of how easily the grease can be removed from surfaces in which it has had contact!

We have indicated the main different classes of vacuum greases and for each, we have provided information for their removal.
