Strong alkalis – cleaning

Post detail image

After forging or casting, parts undergo several additional processing steps: machining, deburring, polishing, welding, etc… These can leave stubborn contamination, for which our strong alkalis are perfectly suited:

RODACLEAN 2018 – For ultrasonic cleaning. Due to its high concentration of potassium and sodium hydroxides, Rodaclean 2018 efficiently removes soluble oils and polishing pastes, as well as most types of organic residues.

DECOCLEAN 440 – The particular chemistry of this detergent makes it a very versatile product, suitable for the removal of neat oil in ultrasonic or spray cleaners (the machine must be equipped with an oil separator), but also polishing paste or various organic residues.

Both references comply with the medical sector‘s latest requirements and do not contain elements banned or restricted by the following regulations (REACH, CLP, ROHS, BPR).

Characterisation of inorganic elements

For the biocompatibility check, the identification of chemical compounds that come into contact with MD is critical. In collaboration with the Albhades laboratory, NGL has carried out a “screening” of its medical range, by ICP-EOS analysis, which reveals the absence or presence of inorganic elements in PPM. Upon request, the list of inorganic elements in these detergents can be provided to facilitate the characterisation of the contaminants (ISO 10993-18).
