Ultrasonic Cleaning Solution Selection Guide

elmatec-chemicals.jpgSelecting the correct ultrasonic cleaning solution is simplified when you have a clear understanding of what you are cleaning and the contaminants you want to remove.  We offer a variety of biodegradable formulations, one or more of which should satisfy your cleaning requirements. All cleaning solutions are shipped as concentrates and are diluted per instructions in the water-filled ultrasonic cleaner tank, then mixed and degassed before you start the cleaning cycle.

We also offer special formulations* for ultrasonic firearm lubrication and corrosion protection.

Shipments include material safety data sheets (MSDS).
