Star Carbon Remover is formulated for the removal of oil and petroleum products which have been exposed to high temperatures forming a carbonaceous deposit. It also strips paint finishes.

Star Carbon Remover is a two-phase liquid. The lower phase contains a powerful blend of chlorinated tar acid solvents and wetting agents whilst the upper phase contains corrosion inhibitors. Components are immersed in the solvent phase, which softens and loosens deposits and paints films, and then withdrawn through the corrosion inhibited upper phase.

Suitable for reconditioning and maintenance cleaning operations, Star Carbon Remover is particularly suited to cleaning various components of engines, machines, motors, compressors, and burners in soak tanks, using cold water in order to remove carbon, fuel residues, tar, paint, and resin, as well as removing varnish and resin.


  • Corrosion of treated parts is minimised.
  • The water seal reduces solvent losses and minimises vapour levels in the working environment.


25 ltr

Directions for use

To ensure correct proportions of upper and lower phase in use solutions, always either shake the drum thoroughly prior to decanting, or use whole drum quantities.

The product is used as supplied and should not be heated.

Use in a mild steel tank.

To ensure an economical bath life, heavily soiled parts should be degreased prior to Star Carbon Remover processing and, where paint is removed, a sludge tray should be included in the soak tank design.

Components should be immersed in the solvent layer until deposits or paint are loosened (normally 0.5 to 2 hours), then carefully withdrawn through the water seal and pressure rinsed to remove remaining residues.

Star Carbon Remover can also be used in enclosed systems and can be circulated by means of a suitable pump and an external reservoir.

The product is used neat and should not be allowed to exceed a temperature of 60`c. Depending on the type of deposit to be removed a circulation time of 4 to 24 hours is required.

After treatment flush the unit with water, steam or flushing oil.

Safety precautions

Star Carbon Remover will adversely affect many plastics, including Perspex, acrylics, polystyrene and A.B.S resins. Star Carbon Remover will also cause distortion and swelling of rubber materials, and will damage varnish and paint finishes.

Always use Star Carbon Remover in a well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wash any splashes off with soap and water. For detailed health and safety information request a hazard data sheet.

Please read the Material Safety Data Sheet before using this product for detailed information on safety and health.
