Henkel Develops Four New Industrial Cleaning Innovations
Henkel has developed no less than four new cleaning products designed to bring a host of advantages to those faced with cleaning industrial surfaces and components. New cleaners, defoamers and descalers are now available, all offering differentiation against competitor products and the ability to deliver competitive gain for users.
There are four fundamental parameters associated with cleaning: chemicals, mechanics, temperature and time. Ensuring the cleaning process is as efficient and cost effective as possible means looking for the optimum balance between the four.
To help identify the ideal chemical, there is again a four step rule which can be applied to almost any cleaning challenge: identify the contamination to be removed; identify the necessary characteristics of the cleaner required; specify the application type, such as manual, spray, dip or ultrasonic; and select the cleaner’s product group – alkaline, neutral or acidic.
Henkel has introduced a new mild alkaline parts cleaner aimed at the maintenance market. BONDERITE® C-MC 90014 offers strong degreasing properties without any of the harmful vapour issues associated with solvents. Featuring low VOC content of ±6%, the product is non-flammable and safe to use on painted surfaces. Moreover, it provides fast evaporation without any visible residue and can be applied either manually or via a fountain table. BONDERITE® C-MC 90014 can also provide temporary corrosion protection of the cleaned surface.
Another new innovation from Henkel is BONDERITE® C-MC 21130, an environmentally compatible product for cleaning-off uncured paints and adhesives. It is ready-to-use (although can be diluted up to 80%) and contains 50% less VOC than conventional solvent cleaners.
