De-Oil-It is an innovative hydrocarbon DEGRADER solution
De-Oil-It degrades the following contaminants:
- Fuels : gasoline, diesel, kerosene (heating and aviation quality), etc.
- Oil : raw, refined, processed
- TCE – Tricloroethylene
- PCB – Polychlorinated Bi-Phenyls
- PAH – Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
- Benzene, Xylene, Toluene, Glycols
How it Works
Ready-to-Use or Industrial Concentrate
De-Oil-It is sold as a liquid solution in two formulas “Ready-to-Use” and “Industrial Concentrate”
Ready-to-Use is exclusively marketed as the De-Oil-It brand and is available in 22oz spray bottle, and jugs in volumes of 1 gallon – 2.5 gallon – 5 gallon, and we also offer a 55 gallon drum. These products are pre-mixed meaning the application process does not necessarily need to follow a dilution guide concerning ratios of water and De-Oil-It; we have already formulated an optimal solution strength relevant to nearly any residential and small to medium size business needs.
Industrial Concentrate is a non-diluted formula intended to be used in large remediation efforts to clean oil / fuel spills on land as well as water. Upon sale of De-Oil-It we will provide how-to-apply information including recommended dilution ratio and explain best-practice approaches to your remediation task.
Both formulas are non-hazardous.
Shipping Codes: NMFS Code 48580-3, Class 55 for domestic shipments and internationally the code is HS 3402.90.90
Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a volatile, colorless liquid organic chemical. TCE does not occur naturally and is created by chemical synthesis. It is used primarily to make refrigerants and other hydrofluorocarbons and as a degreasing solvent for metal equipment. TCE is carcinogenic
TCE is used as a solvent for
• a spot cleaner in dry cleaning
• consumer products (cleaners and solvent degreasers, adhesives, lubricants, hoof polishes, mirror edge sealants, and pepper spray).
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are a group of more than 100 chemicals that are also called polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. PAHs are released from burning coal, oil, gasoline, trash, tobacco, and wood.
PAHs are found in industries that produce or use coal tar, coke, or bitumen (asphalt). They are emitted by coal
gasification plants, smokehouses, municipal incinerators, and some aluminum production facilities
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) are a group of manmade chemicals. They are oily liquids or solids, clear to yellow in color, with no smell or taste. PCBs are very stable mixtures that are resistant to extreme temperature and pressure. PCBs were used widely in electrical equipment like capacitors and transformers.
Products that may contain PCBs include:
- Transformers and capacitors.
- Electrical equipment including voltage regulators, switches, re-closers,bushings, and electromagnets.
- Oil used in motors and hydraulic systems.
- Old electrical devices or appliances containing PCB capacitors.
- Fluorescent light ballasts.
- Cable insulation.

Xylene is primarily used as a solvent (a liquid that can dissolve other substances), particularly in the printing, rubber and leather industries. Xylene is also used as:
- Cleaning Agent
- Paint Thinner and Remover
- Airplane Fuel
- Rust Preventatives
- Paint Thinner and Remover
Toulene is primarily used in various cosmetic products, fuels, and other uses or found in products / elements such as:
- Nail polish
- Hair dyes
- Crude oil
- Pain thinners, stain removers
- Adhesives, glues
- Gasoline especially racing fuel
- Hair dyes
