CHEMAWARE™ Knowledge Services

CHEMAWARE™ Information Platform

The CHEMAWARE™ Information Platform provides extensive know-how to help companies better understand the metal cleaning process. Through the provision of valuable information on how parts cleaning work, solvent legislation, risk management, process optimization and key requirements for choosing the right cleaning technology, CHEMAWARE™ Information Platform encourages the safe and sustainable use of solvents and helps companies make a sound decision in their industrial cleaning applications.  

CHEMAWARE™ Laboratory Analyses

In most cases, fast on-site solvent tests will provide adequate information for re-stabilization. However, in some cases, the cause for insufficient cleaning efficiency may only be determined by means of comprehensive laboratory testing.

From routine analyses to complex troubleshooting, our Lab Services help ensure process reliability and optimized cleaning performance.

  • CHEMAWARE™ Solvent Analysis measures the solvent quality.  
  • CHEMAWARE™ Oil Compatibility Test determines the compatibility of different oils applied in the production process with the solvent and its stabilization.  
  • CHEMAWARE™ Special Analyses are made on demand and provide you with the information needed for your own optimal cleaning process.

CHEMAWARE™ Chemical and Technical Consulting

SAFECHEM provides consultation on specific issues related to the safe and sustainable use of solvents, from handling practices and optimization of the cleaning process all the way to implementation of new cleaning solutions.

We can advise you on questions such as:

  • Which cleaning solution should I use?
  • How do I comply with legislations?
  • How can I effectively manage my risks?

With our free consultancy service "Choosing the Right Cleaning Agent", for example, we can assist you in defining the important requirements that your cleaning technology must fulfil, and help you develop the technical specs so you can see more clearly.


CHEMAWARE™ Educational Services

We offer you and your employees solvent awareness training courses to enable a safe, efficient and reliable solvent cleaning process.
