Sustainable solutions for a circular economy.

Proven technology. Revolutionary process.

Our patented cleaning methodology, Ambimization®, combines chemical and mechanical engineering to provide revolutionary, clean technology that removes hydrocarbon solvents, caustic solutions and heated chemicals from manufacturing processes. With Ambimization®, businesses can reduce their waste outputs by up to 93.3%, decrease VOCs by up to 99.6%, and eliminate solvents entirely.

Fast & effective

Superior cleaning properties

Reduce cleaning times, contamination risks and reliance on external specialist cleaning contractors, while speeding up production. Ambimization® fluids work at ambient temperature to penetrate and change the surface tension of products and contaminants, causing them to separate from the substrate, and improve cleaning performance.

Reduce waste, energy consumption & VOCs

Increased sustainability

Remove persistent environmental risk factors and high VOC permit charges from your business. Ambimization® fluids are low in VOCs, never emulsify and can be used multiple times, significantly reducing waste volumes.

Making a material contribution to the climate change solution.

Trusted by leading manufacturers


Groundbreaking results require
innovative technology.

Traditional solvents emulsify products and contaminants into the body of the fluid and as a result, struggle with challenging contaminants and quickly become ineffective. Ambimization® leverages state-of-the-art machines and proprietary, water-based fluids which are non-toxic, non-flammable, non-carcinogenic, work at ambient temperature and have only 6.5% VOCs. Our fluids never emulsify and can be used multiple times, significantly reducing waste volumes and the associated cost of removal and processing.
Step 1


Our Ambimization® fluids act as a catalyst to penetrate through the surface of a contaminant right back to the substrate.


Step 2

Changing Tension

Ambimization®  fluids change the surface tension of contaminants, causing them to pull away from the substrate, improving cleaning performance.

Chaging Tension

Step 3


The natural separating properties of the Ambimization®  fluids cause lighter contaminants to float to the surface, while heavier ones sink to the bottom.


Step 4


Continual separation, leaves a clean reservoir in the middle of the Ambimization® fluid which can be re-cycled for additional cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find answers to the questions we get asked the most about Ambimization®. If you have a question that you can't find an answer to, please contact us.

What’s the impact of Ambimization® vs solvent alternatives?

Ambimization® increases staff safety by eliminating flammable and toxic substances from the workplace. Businesses benefit from up to 99.6% reduction in VOCs and up to 93.3% reduction in waste, while moving to more circular manufacturing processes. In addition, transitioning from heated detergents to ambient Ambimization® fluids reduces energy consumption.

Is Ambimization® safer than solvent alternatives?

Yes. Ambimization® fluids are non-toxic, non-flammable and non-hazardous. By moving away from typical solvent-based cleaning, companies can further protect their staff from flammable and often toxic solvents.

Can manufacturers improve performance with Ambimization®?

Yes. Since Ambimization® fluids are non-flammable, the deployment methods can be changed to optimize cleaning performance. Fixed and moveable vessels can now be cleaned at high pressures, typically reducing cleaning times by over 50% compared to incumbent cleaning methods. In the automotive sector, spray gun cleaning is often 50% faster than traditional water-based and solvent-based cleaning methods.

How does Terrafend work with customers to test Ambimization®?

Terrafend conducts Ambimization® compatibility testing with your products. Products can be shipped directly to our innovation lab, where they will be cleaned. We conduct testing for product compatibility, cavitation cleaning, agitation cleaning and high-pressure cleaning. Our tests are designed to emulate how Ambimization® will work on site.

How can I move away from solvent-based cleaning?

Ready to get started? Get in touch. When you schedule a meeting with one of our experts, we guide you through the Ambimization® onboarding process and are with you every step of the way. From product testing to implementation – we’ve got you covered.

What areas does Ambimization® technology work in?

Ambimization® can work in both ATEX and non-ATEX rated areas, as our fluids are non-flammable. While the applications for Terrafend's Ambimization® technology can be applied across a broad range of industries, our immediate focus is coatings manufacturers and automotive OEMs.

What’s the waste stream for Ambimization® fluids?

Typically, customers reduce waste by up to 93.3% compared to traditional cleaning methods. Used Ambimization® fluids are usually classed as aqueous waste.

How long does it take to implement Ambimization® ?

Depending on the size of the site and the manufacturing process, Terrafend can partner with you to complete a full Ambimization® site installation in less than 6 months. Some solutions can be implemented immediately.
