Di-Aqua was formulated with the environment in mind and does not contain chlorinated, fluorinated, aromatic or hydrocarbon solvents, or phosphates. The detergents used are biodegradable. It is economical and easy to use and can be diluted with up to 9 parts water.

Silicone Residue Removed from a Aluminum Panel with Di-Aqua
Below is an aluminum panel that was cut in half, sprayed with a silicone lubricant and then cleaned. One half was cleaned with Di-Aqua and the other with Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and rinsed with DI water and dried. As you can clearly see, the panel that was cleaned with Di-Aqua contains no “fish-eyes” which are an excellent indicator of silicone contamination.
