Critically clean processing equipment, whether it be labware, glassware, instrumentation, or processing and extraction equipment, is vital.  The potency, purity and quality, essential characteristics of any drug, rely on critically clean surfaces.  The cannabis industry presents many very specialized and potentially difficult cleaning challenges, from the laboratory all the way through sophisticated large-scale commercial manufacturing processes.  Waxy, resin, oily and sticky residues abound which can be highly adherent, difficult to emulsify, and just a plain challenge to remove.

Aqueous detergents that are not only effective, but end-user safe, aqueous, free-rinsing, interfering residue-free, biodegradable, and without any added dyes, fragrances, brighteners or softeners provide an efficient and safe solution.  Non-hazardous, aqueous cleaning solutions from Alconox Inc. help to maintain the whole reason why cannabis and its natural state is sought after.
