NEW WD-40® SPECIALIST® INDUSTRIAL-STRENGTH DEGREASER HELPS AUTOMOTIVE, CONSTRUCTION PRO’S GET EQUIPMENT CLEANER FASTER

September 15, 2015

SAN DIEGO – Sept. 15, 2015 Knowing that cleaning and maintaining equipment is vital but time-consuming for automotive, construction and skilled trade professionals, WD-40 Company is introducing the WD-40® Specialist® Industrial-Strength Degreaser to help professionals easily and efficiently keep their machinery and equipment running smoothly and looking like new.

With PowerSolve TechnologyTM, a solvent that quickly breaks down grease, oil and dirt, the WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser works on a variety of surfaces and is safe to use on metals, plastics, rubber, glass aluminum, and more.

“This powerful, solvent-based degreaser makes removing tough, caked-on grease, oil and dirt from machinery, engines and equipment easier than ever,” said Dr. Ernest Bernarducci, vice president of research and development at WD-40 Company. “It’s also the only degreaser on the market that has a permanently attached straw to help you pinpoint where to apply it.”

The product’s Smart Straw® sprays two ways – as a pinpoint stream when flipped up or as a wide spray when flipped down. Being able to control how and where to spray the product avoids messy overspray and helps professionals save time and money.

The WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser’s fast-acting formula is 50-state VOC compliant. WD-40 Company also markets the WD-40 Specialist Machine & Engine Degreaser, a water-based degreaser that uses deep penetrating foaming action to remove tough, stuck grease.  

The new WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser is now available at select retailers and industrial distributors nationwide. For more information about the entire line of WD-40 Specialist products, visit WD40Specialist.com .
