AquaKlean EF145: The High Alkaline Cleaner and Etchant for Aluminum

For dual-purpose cleaning and aluminum etching, AquaKlean EF145 is the perfect solution. AquaKlean EF145 produces a smooth, uniform, etched surface on Aluminum and its alloys. Because AquaKlean EF145 is non-phosphated, there will be no sludging, scale-up, or residue after the cleaning process. 

The Cleaning Power of High Alkalinity

The toughest cleaning jobs require two things: the force of agitation and the cleaning power of hydroxide.  For agitated tank applications, it is beneficial to have low to no foam cleaners, such as AquaKlean EF145, and avoid halting production to deal with the suds. In turn, when dealing with the toughest cleaning jobs, hydroxide ions tear the most tenacious greases and soils from the metal surface and into the cleaning solution. The high alkaline, hydroxide-rich solution is perfect for removing inks, polishing and buffing compounds, greases, oils, fingerprints, drawing compounds and metalworking fluids..

Which Materials Can I Use with AquaKlean EF145?

AquaKlean EF145 is useful for several materials, including:
  • Aluminium/Aluminum alloy spray and tank cleaner & etchant
  • Ferrous and non-ferrous metal spray and tank cleaner & degreaser
  • Magnesium 
  • Plastics
  • Ceramics
  • Glass
Additionally, AquaKlean EF145 is biodegradable and has low-foaming tendency.
