Michael Onken, Market Development Manager at SAFECHEM stated: “DOWCLENE™* 1601 has the unique properties to remove oils and greases just as effectively as certain polar contaminations like cooling emulsions or solids such as salt, particles and abrasives. This makes it a highly versatile, effective cleaning agent that is used across the most demanding, high-value manufacturing sectors, from aerospace and automobile to medical technology and precision engineering.
“Traditional modified alcohols tend to give rise to organic acids, or don’t react well with sulfurized or chlorinated oils. A distinct advantage of DOWCLENE™* 1601 is that its cleaning process can be optimized and stabilized through the innovative MAXISTAB™ S-Series stabilizers. Not only can the preventive stabilization counteract the effects of organic acids, sulphur compounds, hydrochloric acid and chlorides, it can also extend the lifespan of DOWCLENE™* 1601, reduce the need for bath exchange, and safeguard sensitive parts of the cleaning machine. As a result, users can benefit from a lower cost-in-use due to reduced solvent consumption and maximum process stability, even when cleaning highly chlorinated oils.”
