Other Cleaning Solutions
CO-42 Cleaning solution
A cleaning and degreasing fluid with many of the performance characteristics of 1.1.1 Trichloroethane, but without the ozone depleting properties.
CO-42 cuts through contamination such as lapping and polishing residue, grease, oils and general surface contamination.
CO-42 is relatively quick drying, but not so fast as to leave dried staining on the surfaces of products. The controlled wetting and evaporation properties of CO-42 make it extremely versatile and efficient.
Able to act as an extremely efficient cleaning agent for all metals, most plastics, ceramics, glass and similar materials.
C70 Cleaning solution
Kemet C70 is a solvent cleaning and degreasing fluid with all of the characteristics needed to remove grease, oil and residues from parts. It is supplied in a pressurised container complete with detachable extended spray tube for reaching into the most difficult areas.
