Available in liquid or powder form, these aqueous-based alkaline cleaners are used to remove soils from metal substrates normally found in the steel and metalworking industries and to clean ferrous & non-ferrous surfaces. As a result, our customers benefit from the following improvements; excellent cleaning at low applied concentration, surface soil removal and prevention of redeposition, good rinsability, increased longevity of cleaner bath, less waste generation and easier treatment, energy savings from cleaning at lower temperatures, foam control across a wide temperature range, residue-free corrosion protection with a thin imperceptible film, one product for multiple applications and simplified ordering and reduced cost.
Process cleaners are needed to remove oils, residues, and fines from metal strip and parts. Designed around flexibility and in-process efficiency, QUAKERCLEAN® and our variety of Multi-Surface Cleaners offer high-performance capabilities and versatility. Whether you are cleaning an incoming raw material, preparing a product for the next process, or need the dual application of a cleaner and rust preventative, Quaker Houghton provides solutions for an array of technical applications to meet every demand your operation requires.p
In an industrial setting, there is constant and essential requirement for cleanliness. With unclean surfaces, manufacturers face challenges ranging from part defects, corrosion, and downstream compatibility issues to slip and fall hazards. Our range of maintenance cleaners keep work areas and equipment clean from the accumulation of oils, greases, and dirt coming from the manufacturing environment.
Primary metal cleaners are specialized cleaning agents used to clean and maintain metal surfaces in industrial settings, such as factories and manufacturing plants. These cleaners are specifically formulated to remove contaminants such as oils, greases, rust, and other metal-based deposits that accumulate on metal surfaces during production processes. Primary metal cleaners can be water-based, solvent-based, or a combination of both, and they are designed to be effective on different types of metals. These cleaners are important for ensuring the quality and longevity of metal surfaces, as well as maintaining the efficiency and safety of industrial equipment.
