Cleaning Agents for Industrial Applications

Industrial parts cleaning includes comprehensive and diverse cleaning applications. Frequently, grease or polishing paste needs to be removed. Fluxes or oxidation are cleaned from electromechanical components or circuit boards, and great care must be taken not to damage the base material.

The Elma range of cleaning agents is designed to meet these very different needs. Subsequent processes such as coating are safe after ultrasonic cleaning and yield high-quality results.

To help achieve perfect cleaning results, Elma offers to perform cleaning runs on a trial basis in our application laboratory in order to find suitable cleaning processes and solutions in cooperation with our expert teams.

Elma Tec Clean A1

Elma Tec Clean A1 is used in ultrasonic baths for cleaning glass and ceramic substrates as well as electro-mechanical components and plastics. Contaminations such as polishing residues, light oil, grease, fluxing agents, dust and finger prints are fully removed. Yellowed housing parts and slats are brightened.

More information about A1 in the product information and in the safety data-sheet.

Elma Tec Clean A2

Elma Tec Clean A2 contains ammonia and is designed for cleaning non-ferrous and precious metals as well as their alloys, brass, copper, other ferrous materials and glass. This cleaning concentrate reliably removes polishing, lapping and grinding residues, grease and oil.

Check zinc, aluminium and light metal alloys for resistance before use.
Non-ferrous and precious metals are brightend up.

Elma Tec Clean A3

Use Elma Tec Clean A3 after mechanical machining of stainless steel, steel and other iron materials, titanium and precious metals. It reliably removes grinding, lapping and polishing residues, punching oil, drawing grease and high-performance cooling lubricants in the ultrasonic cleaning bath.

Not suitable for Aluminium and light metals.

More information about A3 in the product information and in the safety data-sheet.

Elma Tec Clean A4

Elma Tec Clean A4 cleans metals, plastics, ceramics, glass and rubber. It reliably removes contaminations like oil and grease, soot, combustion residues, dust as well as polishing and lapping agents.

Check AlSiMg-light metal-alloys for resistance before use.

More information about A4 in the product information and in the safety data-sheet.

Elma Tec Clean A5

Elma Tec Clean A5 is a light alkaline cleaning agent for metal, gray cast iron, aluminium and light metals as well as zinc and rubber. Alkali-proof plastics can also be cleaned with A5. Contaminations as forged and resinified oil and grease, lacquer and paint remnants, wax, grinding and polishing agents are removed by the Elma Tec Clean A5. 

Check plastics, Mg alloys and lacquers for resistance before use.

More information about A5 in the product information and in the safety data-sheet.

Elma Tec Clean N1

Use Elma Tec Clean N1 for the gentle ultrasonic cleaning of all light and precious metals, plastics, ceramics, glass and rubber.

It reliably removes oil and grease, grinding-, lapping- and polishing agents, dust, sweat and finger prints. Elma Tec Clean N1 is alkali- and acid-free, odourless and biodegradable.

More information about N1 in the product information and in the safety data-sheet.

Elma Tec Clean S1

Elma Tec Clean S1 cleans nonferrous metals, stainless steel, Al and light metals, brass, steel, plastics and glass. It removes rust, lime, oxide films (e.g. verdigris) as well as mineral grease and oils.

Furthermore the S1 is also used to passivate stainless or chrome-plated steels. The passivation action for chromic steels is based on an increased chromium content on the surface by liberating ferrous atoms.

More information about S1 in the product information and in the safety data-sheet.

Elma Tec Clean S2

Elma Tec Clean S2 is suitable for ultrasonic cleaning of stainless steel, steel and precious metals, glass, ceramics and acid-resistant plastics. It eliminates mineral grease and oil, polishing and lapping agents. Furthermore the S2 derusts ferrous metal surfaces and dissolves limescale.

Check plastics and metals for resistance before use. Not suitable for Al and light metals.
