Designed for use prior to plating, phosphating, black oxiding and other operations requiring high levels of cleanliness, Nuvat Classic is a heavy-duty, alkaline soak cleaner suitable for steel, stainless steel, copper, brass and magnesium. The product is a free-flowing, non-dusting, silicated powder containing a balance of buffered alkalinity for multi-metal applications. Incorporated water-softening agents increase cleaning efficiency and reduce build-up in the processing tank. Formulated with a sophisticated surfactant package, a wide variety of soils can be quickly and effectively removed. This free-rinsing cleaner has a high tolerance for contaminants, thus affording extended bath life and making it suitable for barrel processing applications.
