Madison Chemical introduces new cleaner for stainless

26 November 2019

Madison Chemical has introduced ALUMA-CLING BLUE, a moderately acidic, thickened-gel formulation for cleaning aluminum alloys, especially bright, decorative aluminum with no brushing.

This phosphate-free product has ideal detergency and rinsing properties, and is recommended for 5,000 and 6,000 series aluminum alloys and stainless-steel surfaces. It effectively removes plasma smoke residue, weld marks, light oxide, and discoloration due to previous processing, and eliminates or greatly reduces streaking, yellowing, whitening, and over-etching caused by aggressive acids. Easily applied at full-strength by pump, spray, or manually wiping or brushing, ALUMA-CLING BLUE reduces the number of steps and often the manual brushing necessary to obtain a clean, bright aluminum surface.  

For best results use ALUMA-CLING BLUE at full strength (100%) at room temperature. Contact time dependent upon soil loading and application, with 1 to 15 minutes as a reasonable starting point. Longer contact time or reapplication may be required for moderate-to-heavy contaminants. Follow with a cold-water rinse. Optimum results on bright aluminum surfaces are achieved with a high-pressure cold-water rinse.  

Madison Chemical is a chemical formulator providing cleaning, sanitation, maintenance, and surface preparation products for the craft brewery, pulp and paper, metalworking, food processing, industrial maintenance, transportation, wastewater treatment, winery, and other industries.
