CL000 AL, CL002 AL, CL005 AL (Aluminium Specialty)   pdf

Product Description

Solvent based washing systems have various advantages owing to the fact that they donot have any water present which may later on corrode the components. Aluminum components get corroded due to water present in aqueous cleaning systems and develop white rust caused due to presence of water, high-pH deposits, salts and finger marks during handling. Other reasons may be exposure to humid environments, exports or improper packaging and storages.

RUSTX Manufactures specialized cleaning media with rust preventive properties, de-greasing, de-watering & cleaning properties for aluminum components. The following are the features and advantages of the product:

Corrosion Prevention :The solution provides short term corrosion protection for up to 1 month on shop floor for CL 002 AL & CL005 AL. CL 000 provides no intermediate corrosion prevention.

Dewatering : CL000 AL, CL002 AL & CL005 AL are excellent de-watering agents and remove water from the surface or cavities of the component within 5 seconds of dipping of the component.

Degreasing: These are also effective in removing dirt, dust, greases, metal particles, cutting oils etc. The cleaning action is further enhanced in the Ultrasonic Machines, where the component as well as particles are vibrated with the help of ultrasonic waves

Leak Testing: CL 000, Cl002 & CL 005 are transparent solutions and can be used for leak testing in place of water as water left from leak testing may cause corrosion if not dried completely.

High Flash Point: The product has a higher flash point of 70C and does not catch fire easily compared to the generic products based on Carbon Tetrachloride, Benzene etc.

This material is non-hazardous and safe to use & is free from Carbon Tetrachloride or banned substances as per the REACH legislation. It can also be used for multi-metal protection where brass, zinc plated, tin, steel or copper fitments may be present on the component.

There is no detrimental effect on the adulteration of the Cleaning Media with the Rust Preventive and hence there is no need to dry it completely. Just rinsing and draining the excess cleaning media is sufficient.

Use of gloves while handling the components as well as immediate packaging is important. In case the components carry cutting oils or water from previous processes, dewatering with CL005 is recommended.
