Madison Chemical introduces Tumble Brite EP-13, a mild burnishing compound designed to decrease burnishing time while cleaning oils and removing oxide and scale, producing a smooth surface with a bright appearance and luster. Compared to other alkaline products, the product provides enhanced lubricity, controlled foam, and it reduces excessive media-to-media wear, the company says, making it ideal for vibratory or barrel operations.

With a pH of 3.0-3.5 and a specific gravity of 1.08, the compound does not contain nitrite, phosphorus or silicate, and is safe to use on stainless steel, ferrous, aluminum, zinc, copper and brass alloys, as well as for deburring operations. When not rinsed, the company says, it can provide short-term rust protection for normal operations of steel media.  

Tumble Brite EP-13 may be used in vibratory applications in a dilution of 0.5-2.0 percent volume in water. In barrel equipment, the recommended dilution is 1.5-3.0 percent volume in water. When used in “closed” barrels, the barrel must be vented.

Madison Chemical is a chemical formulator that provides cleaning, sanitation, maintenance and surface preparation products for the vibratory and barrel operations, metalworking, food processing, industrial maintenance, transportation, wastewater treatment and other industries.
