Mass Finishing for Remanufacturing

“Remanufacturing is an industrial process
that restores end-of life goods to their original working

US International Trade Commission, October 2012.

A core needs to be evaluated to determine if it is suitable to be remanufactured; after complete disassembly, the components are thoroughly cleaned. This is where we come in, providing expertise in cleaning for over 60 years, it is critical to provide the right blend of chemistry to adequately remove all of the contaminants while preserving the substrate. With the trend to reduce weight from engines, transmissions and other components, softer, lighter metal alloys, like aluminum and magnesium require unique cleaning techniques and additives.

Our technical team has adapted our product line over the years to meet the many challenges faced by customers in metal cleaning. Having the products and the expertise to adapt the product line, puts us in a unique position to supply the remanufacturing market. Below are the top remanufacturing Mass Finishing products that we recommend.
