As a user of SK4 I find it beneficial that the SYSTEMK4, Dibutoxymethane be included in the definition for dry cleaning. In addition, there has been a request to change the definition for dry cleaning as it relates to KB value of the solvent, requiring textiles labeled as sensitive or very sensitive to cleaned in solvent with a low KB value. We know that SK4 can safely clean the most delicate of textiles and almost every type of appliqué and ornamentation. We would not want cleaners using SK4 to be restricted from cleaning couture and high-end fashion because of a misleading association of KB value and solvent safety. The versatility of SYSTEMK4 allows us to handle even very sensitive textiles and trim safely despite its KB value. Up until now there has been no other product that allowed for the cleaning of this types of garment in a safe and environmenally concious way.
