introduces two new cleaning products. Aquanox A4241 is a non-flammable, non-corrosive aqueous cleaning solution designed to be effective on the toughest soils, while protecting sensitive parts from etch or darkening. The company states the product can be used in a multi-process environment in spray batch, spray in-line and stencil cleaning processes and will provide effective removal of nearly 300 soldering materials for brilliant solder joints. According to the company, the product has proven compatible with all materials commonly used in electronics assembly manufacturing and cleaning processes and is non-hazardous, biodegradable and contains no CFCs or HAPs.
Metalnox M6319US is a heavy-duty high alkaline all-purpose cleaner. It is an aqueous blend of detergents, alkalinity builders, conditioners, and organic and inorganic inhibitors designed for heavy-duty cleaning of oils, waxes, grease, drawing oils, machining oils, fingerprints, hydraulic fluids, road dirt, carbonized oils, petrolatum and shop dirt while being relatively safe to use on most alloys. The cleaner is low foaming, non-phosphated and can be used in both spray and immersion systems. It features trace silicates, prevents flash rust, has no HAPs, CFCs or SARA 313s, and is low VOC. It is said to be multi-metal safe for use on yellow metals including copper, bronze and brass, some aluminum alloys, ferrous and copper alloys, iron, steel, magnesium, and composites in addition to most precious metals, plastics and rubbers.
Both cleaners are available commercially in one, five, and 55 gallon containers.
