Aero Clean SLC

January 13, 2013

Aero Clean SLC enhanced water-based cleaning products are available from Chemtool Inc. Aero Clean SLC is a water-based, pH neutral cleaner, that utilizes specialty surfactant systems for superb cleaning on all aluminum alloys as well as non-ferrous alloys and specialty ferrous alloys. Aero Clean SLC offers cleaning performance over a wide temperature range (room temperature to 180°F) and is highl effective at liberating and removing hydrocarbon oil based soils and contaminants from a variety of surfaces, according to the company.

Aero Clean SLC dilutions exhibit an ultra-low interfacial tension value which allows the cleaner to wet out and cover extremely fouled surfaces. This performance feature actually allows the surfactant technologies in Aero Clean SLC to effervesce contaminants immediately from the treated substrate without actually emulsifying the soils or contaminants. First and foremost, this unique performance property then allows the cleaner solution to pop-out and reject soils and contaminants to the surface of the cleaner solution. Soils and contaminants can then be quickly skimmed and separated from the cleaner solution, significantly enhancing cleaning performance and extending cleaner life alloys.

Related Glossary Terms

  • alloys


    Substances having metallic properties and being composed of two or more chemical elements of which at least one is a metal.

  • aluminum alloys

    aluminum alloys

    Aluminum containing specified quantities of alloying elements added to obtain the necessary mechanical and physical properties. Aluminum alloys are divided into two categories: wrought compositions and casting compositions. Some compositions may contain up to 10 alloying elements, but only one or two are the main alloying elements, such as copper, manganese, silicon, magnesium, zinc or tin.
