Cleaner-Degreaser – A cleaning agent able to eﬀectively remove dirt and light greasy soils; usually with a pH level of 7 – 10. Degreaser – A cleaning agent able to eﬀectively remove greasy soils; generally with a pH level of 7 or above.
Neutral – 7 on the pH scale, making it neither acidic nor alkaline
Alkaline Degreaser is a liquid alkaline decarboniser, degreaser and rust remover for motor vehicle and heavy equipment industry. Alkaline Degreaser also has the quality to remove green slime on concrete and buildings.
Pickling Solutions for Decorative Finishing Applications
Pickling Solutions for Decorative Finishing Applications Pickling provides thorough cleaning and activation of metal surfaces by removing the oxide layer of the material, which results in a pure metal surface, free of contaminants and oxides.
Technic supplies a wide range of pickling solutions for decorative metal finishing applications for brass, steel, zinc die cast, leaded brass, beryllium copper, aluminum, nickel, silver, tin, lead and zamak.
The main purpose of the flux is to prepare the metal surfaces for soldering by cleaning and removing any oxides and impurities. Oxides are formed when metal is exposed to air and may prevent the formation of good solder joints.
As a technique, passivation is the use of a light coat of a protective material, such as metal oxide, to create a shell against corrosion. Passivation can occur only in certain conditions, and is used in microelectronics to enhance silicon.
Hexavalent based passivations
Hexavalent based passivations (CrVI) exhibit a number of desirable characteristics . They will passivate the surface of zinc and zinc alloy electrodeposits with a thin film that provides end-user benefits such as color, abrasion resistance and increased corrosion protection.
Trivalent chromium passivation
Trivalent chromium passivation is used after zinc plating for enhancing corrosion resistance of parts. In the passivating process, the amount of dissolved metal ions (for example zinc and iron) in the passivation solution increases the longer the solution is used.
