Zep® Tar & Bitumen Remover is a powerful formula to remove tar and bitumen from tools and associated equipment used with tarmac and other industries using tar. A safer alternative to using diesel or paraffin.

  • Fast acting.
  • Can also remove minerals, grease and more.

For general use:

  1. Apply by brush, cloth or spray over the parts to be cleaned.
  2. Allow to soak for a few minutes and reapply to rinse off or wipe off with a cloth or brush.
  3. Heavy, dry deposits may need longer soaking to clean up.
  4. The cleaner need not be removed completely from the tools or equipment as it would help prevent tar or bitumen sticking to the surface in the future.


Always test on an inconspicuous area before using to test compatibility with the various substrates.

Bought this as an alternative to more expensive tar remover for the purpose of removing tar spots from my car. This worked just as well as AutoGlym Tar remover which is abit more expensive. Tar melted away when this was sprayed on it, a little bit of agitation and the tar was removed. Larger areas of tar and road crud (inside alloys) were harder to remove but this worked well.
