GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Seal Environmental Standard for Cleaning and Degreasing Agents (GS-34)

Title:
Green Seal Environmental Standard for Cleaning and Degreasing Agents (GS-34)

Abstract:
This standard establishes environmental requirements for cleaning/degreasing agents. For purposes of this standard, cleaning/degreasing agents are defined as cleaners/degreasers marketed as suitable for cleaning soils in production and maintenance applications. Suitable agents do not include those for specialized cleaning/degreasing operations such as the removal of paints, sealants, rust, and adhesives; handwiping parts; preparation of surfaces for electroplating, organic coatings, and parts testing; or the cleaning of hydraulic components, medical supplies, electronics, and optics. Due to the large number of possible cleaning products, processes, soil types, and cleaning requirements, compatibility of cleaning/degreasing agents with surface materials is not specifically addressed in this standard. Product users shall follow the manufacturers instructions on compatibility. Military users of this standard are reminded that it only covers the environment and that the selection of a specific degreaser may require clearance from necessary channels such as the appropriate commodity managers and USACHHPM. All criteria, unless otherwise specified, are based on the stated final degreasing agent concentration.
