ULTRA-CLEAN US-159 Removes Burned On Oil and Grease

Madison Chemical introduces ULTRA-CLEAN US-159, a cutting-edge alkaline detergent developed specifically for difficult cleaning operations involving the removal of aged, oxidized, burned-on oil and grease, including engine and transmission repair and rebuilds. Intended for immersion including agi-lift and ultrasonic equipment, this special formulation cleans more thoroughly in less time, thus increasing productivity.  Its unique formula produces low to moderate foam, thus maximizing ultrasonic cavitation. ULTRA-CLEAN US-159 is ideal for machinery rebuilding, including engines and transmission, component cleaning during maintenance procedures, and more. 

Safe for use on ferrous alloys when used as directed, ULTRA-CLEAN US-159 may etch or stain aluminum and zinc alloys, therefore pretesting before use is recommended.  Dilutions from 2-10% by volume in water that is 120-160° are typically effective.  Heavier soils and/or ultrasonic applications may benefit from operating at higher temperatures up to 190°F.  Follow cleaning step with a thorough ambient-to-warm water rinse.
