    A cleaning composition for removing reactive PUR Adhesive from production and processing devices, machines and equipment which includes at least one reactive monofunctional hydroxyl compound which can react with the reactive isocyanate groups of the hot melt adhesive. The monohydroxy functional compound of the invention's clean composition completely saturates the remaining NCO groups of the hot melt adhesive to be removed, converting the adhesive into non-reactive, meltable compounds which are soluble in the cleaning composition.

    A cleaning composition is produced from abietyl alcohol at an NCO:OH ratio of 1:1 with regard to the PUR hot melt adhesive to be removed, the viscosity and the processing properties being correspondingly adjusted by adding resin, wax and the like. Abietol-E™ by Hercules is used as the abietyl alcohol.

    A cleaning composition is produced by stoichiometrically reacting high molecular weight polycaprolactone having a low content of OH groups with tosyl isocyanate as the monofunctional isocyanate compound, until the free hydroxyl groups of the polycaprolactone are fully neutralized. Subsequently approx. 5% of methyl benzyl alcohol is added as the NCO reactive component. The viscosity is adjusted by adding resin.

    Polyurethane hot melt adhesive containing about 2% of remaining or residual NCO functionality) with methyl benzyl alcohol at an excess of about 5% of the amount necessary for completely saturating the NCO groups still present in the adhesive to be removed.
