SYSTEM K4 is an innovative, highly effective, environmentally friendly, and absolutely safe cleaning procedure for commercial textile care, for which we have applied for patents worldwide. SOLVON K 4 is a solvent that is neither hazardous nor hazardous and has cleaning power equal to or partially better than that of conventional cleaning products.
Clearly well designed – SYSTEM K4 for a sustainable future:
SOLVONK4 Dry Cleaning Solvent is part of the SYSTEM K4 process and is now a USDA-certified bio-based and bio-preferred product. Bio-based products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provide an alternative to conventional petroleum-derived products. SOLVONK4 is 88% bio-based.
A USDA-certified biobased product label indicates the biobased content of the product. source:
These are some of the products that come from renewable resources such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstock. Utilizing renewable bio-based materials replaces the need for non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals.
