NuWet™ 4100 Safe Non-Toxic / Non-corrosive / Non-Regulated Low Surface Tension Precision Cleaner

Applications: Moderately acidic Post Polish and Post Texture Media Cleaner. A Non-hazardous product to replace solvent and harsh acid based cleaners in the Disk Drive (Media Storage) Industry. NuWet 4100 has been formulated with the needs of the electronics and medical device industries in mind. All of our products are manufactured with the highest-grade raw materials using 18 MOhm “Certified Electronics grade” DI water then filtered to meet customers’ requirements before packaging.
