HydraSol® Gel Remover is a new approach in cable cleaning materials. It is a water-based solvent cleaner that offers unique safety and handling. HydraSol® Gel Remover is amazingly effective at dissolving and removing cable filling greases (ickypic).

HydraSol® Remover's components are on the FDA's and FEMA's "generally recognized as safe," lists. They have low toxicity whether by oral, inhalation or dermal exposure. The product is water-based (over 50% water).

HydraSol® Remover softens, removes and suspends cable filling greases. The solvent remains active and is only slowly "used up." HydraSol® Remover is good for multiple cleaning for economy and efficiency.

HydraSol® Remover is easy to rinse off hands and tools. Dissolved grease isn't "redeposited" as the cleaner residue dries.

Unique Spray Bottles - HydraSol® Gel Remover is available in environmentally safe, refillable, trigger spray bottles (adjustable for stream or spray).

Durable Saturated Wipe - HydraSol® Remover is available in a presoaked towelette. The large, tear-resistant towelette comes in an easy-open foil pack. The towelette is especially effective for smaller cleaning jobs and fiber optic splicing. Saves money over bulk use with rags.
