Heavy Duty Cleaning Compounds

Cleaning compounds are used in mass finishing processes to work along with the media to provide superior cleaning and pretreatment.  Therefore, compounds for cleaning should be compatible with the mass finishing equipment and media for an efficient application.

Our solutions are available in the following packaging sizes:

  • 5-gallon pails
  • 55-gallon drums
  • 300-gallon totes

MC 250

A low alkaline, silicate free, buffered pH cleaner that is highly fortified with surfactants.  Designed specifically as a soak cleaner for aluminum.  Will prepare aluminum for post seeding operations without etching the surface.

Usage:

  • Concentration 5 – 20 %
  • Temperature 130° – 170 °F
  • Soak Time 5 – 10 Minutes

Advantages:

1. Water based cleaner.
2. Non-Silicated
3. Buffered pH
4. Multi-metal safe.
5. Excellent rinsability

MC 301

A heavy-duty degreaser for use in vibratory, centrifugal, and soak wash systems. It is safe for use on most ferrous metals.

Usage:

This product is diluted with water before usage. Determine the proper ratio based on the volume of the tank.

  • For light to medium-duty soil removal, mix MC 301 at 1% to 2% with water.
  • For heavy-duty soil removal, mix MC 301 at 3% to 5% with water.

Operating temperatures are 110° to 160° F.

Advantages:

1. Water based cleaner.
2. Biodegradable.
3. Useful over a wide range of applications and operating conditions.
4. In-process corrosion protection.
5. Excellent rinsability

MC 360 N

A heavy-duty degreaser with corrosion protection for use in vibratory and centrifugal systems. It is to be used on ferrous metals only.

Usage:

This product is diluted with water before usage. Determine the proper ratio based on the volume of the tank.

  • For light to medium-duty soil removal, mix MC 360N at 1% to 2% with water.
  • For heavy-duty soil removal, mix MC 360N at 3% to 5% with water.

Advantages:

1. Water based cleaner.
2. Biodegradable.
3. Useful over a wide range of applications and operating conditions.
4. In-process corrosion protection.
5. Excellent rinsability.

QS 100

A heavy-duty degreaser for use in vibratory, centrifugal, and soak wash systems. It can be left on parts for short term corrosion protection.  Safe for use on most metals.

Usage:

This product is diluted with water before usage. Determine the volume of the tank before diluting.

  • For light-duty soil removal, mix QS 100 at 1% to 2% with water.
  • For heavy-duty soil removal, mix QS 100 at 3% to 4% with water.
  • For soak applications, mix QS 100 at 8% to 12% with water.

Operating temperatures are ambient to 160° F.

Advantages:

1. Water based cleaner.
2. Biodegradable.
3. Useful over a wide range of applications and operating conditions.
4. In-process corrosion protection.
5. Excellent rinsability.

MC 960 A

A heavy-duty degreaser with corrosion protection for use in vibratory and centrifugal systems. It is to be used on ferrous metals only.

Usage:

This product is diluted with water before usage. Determine the proper ratio based on the volume of the tank.

  • For light to medium-duty soil removal, mix MC 960A at 1% to 2% with water.
  • For heavy-duty soil removal, mix MC 960A at 3% to 5% with water.

Advantages:

1. Water based cleaner.
2. Useful over a wide range of applications and operating conditions.
3. In-process corrosion protection.
4. Excellent rinsability.

How To Choose Mass Finishing Cleaning Compounds?

A successful mass finishing process must begin with an effective cleaning compound to remove excess soils on the part.  Therefore, the cleaning step is crucial to the deburring, descaling, and the overall surface properties that are achieved through mass finishing.

An effective cleaning compound should:

  • Be compatible with the substrate (Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Steel, etc.)
  • Compatible with the equipment (Centrifugal, Vibratory)
  • Effectively clean soils off the part (Oil, Grease, Cutting Fluids)
  • Contain corrosion inhibitor built in to protect part in subsequent steps
  • Compatible with the media used
