it is a toluene based thinners that is used during the manufacture of hypalon tubes so no problem there but it is crap for removing mud ect you need to wash and possibly scrub the tubes with a decent detergent like diluted traffic film remover then clean with acetone ,thinners (gunwash type ) or toluene

read there are two sorts of traffic film remover: alkaline based or PH NEUTRAL ONES . which is best? How much do I have to dilute? I already scrubbed the fabric impression with a brush but in my believe black should be black. And I like it clean and neat!

I used AutoGlym motor bike cleaner or engine degreaser on my old tubes to get them clean.
always did the trick and not too nasty on the tubes or me.
