Environmental Products offer industrial &
domestic users proven, effective cleaning and
solventing products without the hazards associated
with traditional chemistries. Hydroc cleaners
and degreasers are formulated from cutting edge
proprietary emulsifying technology and are some
of the most versatile and powerful surfactant
systems in the industry today. Hydroc Products
are a complete line of industrial and consumer
cleaners and degreasers all based upon a single
liquid super concentrate formulation. The original
product was used & developed primarily for
marine oil spills and cleaning up hazardous
waste. The unique colloid formulation is derived
from a non-ionic surfactant system that combines
the molecular affinity of a lipophil and a hydrophil
with a third proprietary surfactant manufactured
by Shellmode Pty Ltd. The resulting super concentrate,
when combined with water in various dilutions,
will emulsify fats, greases, lipids, oils, proteins
and sugars (long chain hydrocarbon molecules)
so that the dirt can be rinsed away with water.
The products do not contain hydrocarbon solvents,
phosphates, builders or reagents. All Hydroc-Products
are readily biodegradable, non-toxic, non-flammable,
non-fuming and they are dielectric in nature.
Hydroc-Products will not attack metal, rubber,
plastic, vinyl, glass or natural finishes.
powerful is the Hydroc super concentrate that
up to 15 parts of bunker C crude oil will be
completely emulsified by only 1 part Hydroc.
Hydroc Products are excellent for electric,
gas and telephone utilities; petroleum production;
manufacturing; transportation and automotive
users; food processors, for cleaning rivers,
ports and ocean oil spills; for all janitorial
cleaning and anywhere that water may be applied.
Hydroc a range of products can be formulated
that include Carpet spotter and Shampoo, a Hand

IS A COLLOID CLEANER?
learn the nature of a Colloid Cleaner, you should
first know what HYDROC is not. It is not a soap,
detergent, or petroleum solvent. It is non-toxic
and has no flash point.
HYDROC Colloid Cleaner is, is a homogeneous
blend of colloids, sequestrants, surfactants,
and hyper-wetting agents that become super-active
when processed together. The cleaning action
is unique and can only be related to the reaction
of the atom in an atomic explosion, where the
ceaseless random movements of the atoms taking
place in HYDROC actually lifts, separates, and
holds in separation the oils, grease, dust,
soils, etc. which have been penetrated by HYDROC
properties of colloids were first documented
in the search to find a biodegradable substance
that would break up oil slicks on oceans. Through
the research of why such products could break
up grease and oil and hold them in separation,
it was learned that colloids have minute particles
(0.000000001cm) called micelles that, when combined
with water, break the surface tension to make
water super wet. That same action allows the
micelles to penetrate grease, oil and dirt and
hold them in suspension in the super-wet water;
in effect making them dissolve in water.
HYDROC simply penetrates into the grease, oil
and other "dirt" and stirs things
up, the design in like no other cleaner and
will continue to work as long as there is moisture
to work with. Fresh water or salt water, combined
with other solvents or alone, HYDROC will continue
Colloid Cleaner is an extremely safe, all purpose
cleaner that is: completely people safe, no
effects from over-exposure, no special storage
requirements, non-hazardous, non-flammable,
non-toxic, non-explosive, non-fuming, non-caustic,

DESCRIPTION OF HYDROC COLLOID CLEANER
COLLOID CLEANER = SAFETY! HYDROC COLLOID CLEANER
is completely 'people safe' and will not harm
or dry out the skin. There are no effects from
overexposure. No emergency or first aid procedures
are required except if splashed into eyes, flush
with water. No special equipment or protection
devices are needed when using HYDROC COLLOID
CLEANER. HYDROC COLLOID CLEANER does not require
any special precautions for handling or storage.
COLLOID CLEANER IS NON-HAZARDOUS, NON-FLAMMABLE,
NONTOXIC, NON-EXPLOSIVE, NON-FUMING, AND NON-CAUSTIC.
COLLOID CLEANER is safe on plastics, fabrics,
paints, leathers, metals, wood, glass, ivory
and ceramics when used as directed. HYDROC may
be used on anything that is safe in water.
COLLOID CLEANER may be used in hard, soft or
salt water and is ecologically safe. HYDROC
contains no phosphates, nitrates, NTA, enzymes,
sulfates, sulphonates, caustics, or other known
COLLOID CLEANER is readily biodegradable. Biodegradability
refers to the breaking down and returning of
a substance to a natural state through natural
action. This happens when bacteria attacks the
substance and returns it to nature. However,
the word "biodegradable" means nothing
by itself, as all materials will eventually
return to a natural state. The key is how soon
or how long. When a substance bio degrades too
quickly it becomes a "bio stimulant"
and as in the case of phosphates, becomes a
pollutant aging the waters by using too many
bacteria too quickly., this is called eutrophication,
which is what has happened to the Great Lakes
in the USA. When a substance biodegrades in
excess of the optimum time of seven (7) days,
it is considered a hard chemical. These: hard
chemicals resist microorganisms and persist
in the environment for many years. DDT is an
example of a hard chemical. These are generally
very soluble in fats and when ingested in food,
can be dangerous to our health.
phosphates bio degrade in 24 hours, Mercury
takes over 100 years to bio degrade. Therefore,
to say that a thing is "biodegradable"
or bio degrades is incomplete and must be clarified
by the time period in which the biodegradation
occurs. HYDROC COLLOID CLEANER biodegrades 99%
in seven days, which will help preserve our
precious water resources.
PROPERTIES OF HYDROC COLLOID CLEANER
It is an amber coloured liquid having a mild
and pleasant odour and a viscosity of 100 cps
(centipoise). The pH is 10.3 to 10.5 and the
boiling point is 100%C. The product is non-toxic
and has no flash point.
COLLOID CLEANER is 99.935% water soluble with
0.65% insoluble matter. The vapour pressure
at 20%C is 17.0 MM (millimetres) and the vapour
density is .62 of air (air=I). The specific
gravity is 295 grams per litre with a surface
tension of 29.5 (dynes per CM at 25%C).
evaporation rate is 0.7 of butyl acetate (butyl
acetate = 1).
COLLOID CLEANER may be mixed with alkalis, certain
types of salts, certain types of acids and petroleum
solvents for those jobs that may require special

COLLOID CLEANER is a homogeneous blend of colloids,

can only be related to the reaction of the atom

we refer toHYDROC as a cleaner, it is not a
soap or a detergent so it's use is not limited
to just cleaning.
a more detailed and illustrative explanation
of how colloids work, see the schematics titled
"Water Is Not Really Wet Until Certain
Physicochemical Actions Occur" and "What
Happens When We Clean with HYDROC Colloid Cleaner".
These demonstrate the magnetic qualities and.
attraction of the colloids, which give in cleaning,
an extremely wide range of power in the jobs
it will do. Since the colloids simply penetrate
into solids and stir things up, their design
is like no other cleaner and will continue to
work as long as there is moisture to work with.
Although they work equally well in fresh or
salt water, water is a prime factor in their
colloids work in this unusual manner, time is
important. Therefore, we must relearn our cleaning
methods to allow for "dwell" time
or time to allow the colloids to lift and separate.
Occasionally, or on heavy soil, agitation will
also be needed to assist the cleaning process
and speed up the action.
you think of cleaning as a pie cut into four
pieces, which include time, chemical, energy,
and heat then you can visualise how cleaning
works. Cleaning takes all four pieces, but the
size of the pieces can be adjusted. If you make
chemical a smaller piece, you will have to increase
the other three pieces or at least one of them
to compensate for the smaller amount of chemical.
So, if you decide to decrease the amount of
chemical you will perhaps increase the agitation
by using a brush, or increase the heat by using
a steam cleaner with a power jet spray. If you
do not increase either of these pieces, then
you must allow additional "dwell"
time to compensate for the decrease in chemical.
This formulation works for each of the pieces
of pie. Increase the chemical and you can decrease
the time, energy, or the heat, or all three.
