Well-suited for mass finishing operations, Madison Chemical’s Tumble Brite EP-13 is a mild burnishing compound designed to clean oils and remove oxide and scale faster than other alkaline products, producing a smooth surface with a bright appearance and luster. According to the company, the compound also provides excellent lubricity and controlled foam, and reduces excessive media-to-media wear, making it especially useful for vibratory or barrel operations.

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