Our GBL cleaner contains 99,99% Gamma Butyrolactone of the highest quality. Manufactured in BASF Germany. Gamma-butyrolactone GBL is a colorless odorless transparent liquid free of suspended substance.

This versatile solvent can be used as a wheel cleaner, as a glue for plastic and GBL can be used as a very effective wood re-finisher.  It is miscible with water, alcohols, ketones, esters and aromatic hydrocarbons. Solubility is limited in aliphatic and cycloaliphatic hydrocarbons.

Applications of GBL:

  • removes most paints and graffiti,
  • removes rust,
  • removes enamel,
  • removes oil stains,
  • wood preservative,
  • removes glue,
  • cleaning alloy wheels,
  • removes nail polish,
  • cleaning print heads,
  • cleaning of printed circuit boards,
  • removal of resin and bitumen,
  • cleaning brakes,
  • helps with floor stripping.


Polyurethanes are some of the most stubborn finishes to remove.  Traditionally, the only way to remove a poly finish was to use dangerous petroleum based strippers that are flammable and produce noxious and possibly cancer-causing fumes.  GBL has no harmful fumes, is not flammable, and will not damage your skin like some other wood refinishing compounds will.  When you choose our 3 liters 99.99% pure gamma butyrolactone, you are choosing quality and safety.
