POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser (formerly marine-clean) cleans and degreases in one application without leaving residues, noxious fumes, or flammable solvents. No other cleaner works as fast or as well. It makes petroleum-based cleaners almost obsolete because POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser can be diluted with water up to 4 to 10 times its volume while remaining more potent than other cleaners. This water-based and non-solvent cleaner removes grease, oil, mildew, algae, musty odors, soap films, wax. Use this paint-safe degreaser to clean canvas, vinyl, nylon, holding tanks, grease traps, auto parts, and more.
Adhesion is important with most paints but has to be perfect for POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating to achieve its maximum effectiveness. A solvent wipe before painting didn't work with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating; in the lab we found it did more harm than good by leaving a residue that didn't help with adhesion or appearance. We had to come up with a substance that would clean metal without leaving a residue. What we developed, POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser, contradicts all accepted theories about metal prep products: its water-based, not solvent-based and it cleans without leaving residues. In laboratory adhesion tests, our POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating using POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser first to clean the bare metal far exceeded every other prep product we found in the marketplace.
TIP: When applying to Aluminum or other alloys for clear coating, first test on an inconspicuous area for staining or discoloration. If staining or discoloration occurs, dilute Cleaner Degreaser 50% with water and retest.
Step 1: Clean it with POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser
“We used the POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser to remove any surface oils or other contaminants on the metal. After primer, the correct semi-gloss black paint from POR-15 was applied with a spray gun and compressor on all parts of the frame.”

I’ve never seen a product that when used per instructions, that has the results of POR 15 Hands Down. Ps I’m a 73 year old man, that’s been using this for over fifteen years.
Great product. Does a great job cutting through grease.
Did the 3 step process and had great results. Used on 70 year old farm truck from TN with lots of rust. Very happy with results.
POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser should be diluted with hot water. Four parts water to one part Cleaner Degreaser (4:1) works well for most jobs; but may be diluted up to ten parts water to one part Cleaner Degreaser (10:1). After using Cleaner Degreaser rinse job thoroughly with water. Metal Surfaces cleaned with Cleaner Degreaser should always then be treated with POR-15 Metal Prep before painting.
Caution Cleaner Degreaser may stain alloy surfaces.
