NOKOMIS 3 is a synergetic blend of chemicals with superior dispersing ability, selective compatability and acceptable toxicity that takes NOKOMIS far beyond other cleaning products.
NOKOMIS 3 is a synergetic blend of chemicals which, in its unique combination, provides favorable actions and characteristics in terms of ionic electric charge, dispersing ability, selective compatability and acceptable toxicity.
Oil’s and greases, whether in the form of film, slick or glob, constitute a homogenous, coalesced mass. When NOKOMIS 3 is thoroughly mixed in prescribed solutions with hydrocarbons, oils, greases, dirt, etc. it penetrates into the mass, alters the surface tensions, and quickly breaks the mass into millions of individual particles.
The dispersing action of NOKOMIS 3 is quick, thorough and completely effective. Each individual molecule of NOKOMIS 3 is attracted to a particle of oil and water. NOKOMIS 3 then grabs the particle, pulls it apart, pulverizes it, and continues to shred and chop it into smaller and smaller particles until ultimate solubility in water is attained. By this action NOKOMIS 3 creates millions of times more exposed surfaces of the oil particle than any other product— even in adverse salt water conditions.
The minuteness, shape and disconnected separateness of these tiny particles provide the greatest possible compatibility for ingestion by environmental bacteria— hence NOKOMIS 3 in action is truly bio-degradable.
The end result of a proper application of NOKOMIS 3 on an oil spill or a concentration of oil to be cleaned-up is two-fold— it not only disperses and breaks-up the oil quickly but hastens the consumption of the treated oil-by environmental bacteria. The same performance qualities make NOKOMIS 3 the safest and most effective cleaning agent both at sea and ashore.
Due to its unique formulation, NOKOMIS 3 works equally well in fresh or salt water. It can be mixed with alkalis, salts of various types and certain types of additives.
Many cleaning jobs which formerly required a special compounds and formulations can now be accomplished with NOKOMIS 3.
