LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE: APD)
today introduced the new Tomakleen™ G-12 additive to its product portfolio for
Industrial and Institutional cleaning. Tomakleen G-12 additive delivers
improved cleaning performance and can reduce or eliminate the need for
oxygenated solvents historically used in I&I cleaning products.

Tomakleen G-12 additive is a detergency booster that is used with a surfactant
to improve cleaning performance. The unique structure of Tomakleen G-12
additive provides fast monomer migration and better surface exchange to
deliver a cleaning "boost" to products such as hard surface cleaners, heavy
duty degreasers, and vehicle care products. The solvency of Tomakleen G-12
additive, along with its cleaning performance, can effectively reduce or
eliminate the need for oxygenated solvents.

"Increasing environmental regulations and the need to improve worker safety
can present a real challenge to formulators. Tomakleen G-12 additive was
designed to meet that challenge by delivering improved and faster cleaning
while enabling reduced VOC formulations," said Frank Womack, global business
manager, Functional Additives, for Air Products.
