About Us

BioChem Systems is a recognized leader in formulating safe solvents and degreasers used in a variety of industries.  The company has a strong presence in the railroad tank car cleaning industry, where the VaporX® cleaning process has been adopted by numerous tank car cleaning facilities.

Since the day BioChem was founded in 1984, the primary focus of the company has been to replace hazardous chemicals in the workplace with safe and effective alternatives. Unlike many chemical companies that simply sell their products, BioChem serves as a resource for detailed cleaning strategies.

The legacy line of BioChem products originated in 1984 with a request to replace 1, 1, 1 trichloroethane (TCA).

The objective was to find a product that cleaned as well as, or better than, TCA. The product had to be biodegradable and safe for workers and the environment. The product could not contain chlorinated solvents, petroleum products, acids, caustics, or other hazardous chemicals. After one year of detailed lab testing and field evaluations, the first product, “Alpha-Bio T,” was developed. Later the product was renamed “Bio T Max.
