It is the result of the incomplete combustion of heavy petroleum products such as tar. Imagine cleaning a furnace or fireplace filled with soot. Depending on what kind of work you do, this clean up may be regular to remove carbon black rubber, or activated charcoal and graphite. What do you use to clean that carbon black dust off with?

The Best Degreaser in the Industry

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers diesel exhaust as one of the most dangerous types of air pollution. Pollution is linked to lung cancer, while soot and smog pollution are scientifically associated with death and respiratory problems each year. The diesel engines that emit this harmful pollution are found in long-haul trucks, buses, construction and agricultural equipment, as well as generators and some trains.

To remove diesel soot from exhaust pipes (carbon steel, aluminized steel, stainless steel), use the heavy duty degreaser, Pro De-Solv-it Mechanics’ Solvent. If diesel soot damages the environment and our health, imagine the residue it will leave behind on the exhaust pipes of vehicles and machinery that use the fuel source. What is left on the pipes is diesel particulate matter, or carbon compounds that were not fully combusted.
