Process Cleaners -We provide aqueous, emulsion, and solvent cleaning chemistries that meet the toughest cleaning requirements in wand, spray wash, and immersion applications.

  • DuJel & Multi-TERJ® lines.    
  • The DuJel line of ready to use gel cleaners clings to vertical surfaces to obtain prolonged contact time to penetrate and remove rust, laser and heat scale. 
  • The Multi-TERJ® family of multi-metal safe products are formulated strong enough for remanufacturing operations while operating in low temperatures and eliminating scale.

Paint Pretreatments -DuBois paint pretreatment products are proven to yield the highest quality appearance and corrosion durability in the market with a wide range of treatment options, final seals, and paint booth products.

  • Iron and Zinc conversion coatings; Secure & Perma Gard lines.
  • The Secure line of Iron Phosphate products has been proved to provide over 1000 hours of salt spray.  
  • The Perma Gard Zinc products reduce operating costs and chemical consumption versus traditional zinc systems.
  • Non phosphate technologies; DuraTEC & PACRE lines.         
  • The DuraTEC line of zirconization pretreatments provide increased corrosion protection, faster coating formation, and superior flash rust prevention.
  • The new patent-pending PACRE polymer technology addresses difficult to finish edges and weld areas by pickling and treating in one step.                                                 

Metalworking Fluids & Rust Inhibitors -The DuBois metalworking line includes straight oils, water soluble oils, and semi-synthetic and synthetic fluids. A complete line of rust inhibition products offers solutions for short or long term storage, regardless of the environment.

  • GX-Cool water soluble oils provide high lubricity and a range of pressure options while prolonging sump life and reducing unwanted residues on parts and machines.
  • Pearl-Z bactericide-free metalworking fluids provide safety and profitability by extending the life of the machine tools and reducing drag out.
  • Step One is formulated to remove varnish, carbon, sludge, and small amounts of water from oil reservoir systems to eliminate downtime by providing in-line cleaning.

General Cleaners -DuBois General Cleaning line includes maintenance cleaners and degreasers, floor cleaners, and janitorial products.

  • Jettacin multi-purpose cleaner is a medium-to-heavy-duty economical detergent for manual or pressure cleaning and is safe on most surfaces, including metals and paints.
