NuGeneration Technologies’ AquaKlean NS is a mildly alkaline, low-foaming liquid cleaner for use in spray and tank applications. The non-silicated and non-caustic formula will not sludge or form a scale while the mild alkalininity allows AquaKlean NS to be used as a multi-metal cleaner.
Other acceptable materials include plastics, ceramics and glass.


AquaKlean NS was formulated to provide improved removal of particulates and organics with reduced residues and fast rinsing. AquaKlean NS may be used in solvent replacement tanks with hand brushing operations. AquaKlean NS provides excellent wetting and rinsing properties and is therefore an excellent choice for pre-plate cleaning.

Removes inks, polishing and buffing compounds, grease, oils, fingerprints, drawing compounds, and metalworking fluids.

Directions for Use

AquaKlean NS is effective at ambient temperatures. However, it is normally used at 1 – 5% by volume of water at 70 – 145°F for 5 seconds to 5 minutes. The parameters can vary depending on the type and extent of soils being removed. Temperatures may be increased slightly for shorter time cycles. Not safe on magnesium. Test for discoloration on cuprous alloys.
