NOVOTEC® CB800 is GELITA’s revolutionary, highly effective and environmentally friendly cleaning solution for the metalwork industry. Based on functional proteins, NOVOTEC® CB800 helps to remove oil, fats, rust and other contaminants. It acts as a natural surfactant and forms water-soluble protection films on cleaned surfaces. As such, this simple and safe-to-use concept not only protects and cleans the metal surfaces, it also renders them ready for further processing, such as phosphating, coating, bonding or welding. This versatile, fully biodegradable cleaning solution is safe for both operators and the environment.

Proteins with added value from GELITA

Novotec Gelita

Proteins are a key performance factor in complex biological systems such as the human body, where they lubricate joints, stabilize bones, and protect the skin. GELITA has transferred this protein know-how to add value to diverse industrial applications. In these complex industrial applications, these novel proteins marry health and environmental friendliness to exceptional industrial benefits – offering significant added value compared to conventional solutions.

Experience the NOVOTEC® effect!

Novotec Effect

NOVOTEC® proteins attach themselves to the most varied of surfaces. On these surfaces, the proteins combine to form stable, resistant hydrating layer. As water hits the layer surface, the proteins attract the water molecules and a closed hydrophilic protective layer results. In practice, this protects surfaces and also improves separating, lubricating and cooling production steps. NOVOTEC® protein solutions simplify, accelerate or optimize processes, improve quality, reduce costs and promote high environmental and health compatibility.

Clean and protect more efficiently with the NOVOTEC® effect

NOVOTEC® CB800 consists of natural, polyfunctional protein molecules and was specifically designed to adhere to surfaces such as steel, glass and aluminum. There they form protective layers of hydrated protein chains that facilitate the removal of dirt by increasing the water attraction on the surface. Conventional cleaning agents often use silicates to protect surfaces. Other solutions rely on water-repellent substances such as wax to prevent renewed soiling. Both versions produce residues that hamper the removal of water-insoluble dirt.



NOVOTEC® CB800 optimizes detergents and cleaning agents


Detergents and cleaners that allow for easier cleaning, protect surfaces from re-soiling and which are sustainable, environmentally and operator friendly at the same time – with NOVOTEC® CB800 from GELITA, this vision becomes reality. The innovative protein-based liquid concentrate provides conventional cleaning systems with an easy-to-clean effect.



Naturally health-friendly

Novotec CB800


By contrast, the protein layers of NOVOTEC® CB800 attract water. Dirt „floats“ on the protective layer and is simply washed away when it comes into contact with water (easy-to-clean). The result is clean surfaces that can be washed more easily. New dirt fails to penetrate to the surface and can instead easily be wiped from the protective protein layer.

NOVOTEC® CB800 is made of natural collagen. This innovation by GELITA not only enables perfect cleaning results without aggressive chemicals, but also helps to significantly improve the skin and environmental friendliness of detergents and cleaning agents.
