Madison Chemical (Madison, IN) introduces two cleaning solutions.
Applied at full strength by pump or spray, phosphate-free Aluma-Cling Blue reduces the number of steps and often the manual brushing necessary to obtain a bright surface on 5000 and 6000 series aluminum alloys and stainless steel. The moderately acidic, thickened gel removes plasma smoke residue, weld marks, light oxide, and discoloration due to previous processing; and eliminates or greatly reduces streaking, yellowing, whitening, and over-etching caused by aggressive acids.
Designed for removing aged, oxidized, burned-on oil, removing grease, and other difficult cleaning operations, Clean-Gard 83 alkaline detergent is intended for immersion application, including ultrasonic and agi-lift, as well as recirculation spray washers up to 25 psi.
The formulation produces low-to-moderate foam, maximizing ultrasonic cavitation. When not rinsed, the cleaning solution offers very good rust protection. It’s ideal for use with ferrous, aluminum, and zinc alloys when used as directed, making it ideal for a wide range of manufacturing environments.
