Products for Aluminum Finishing

KIMYA BUFF-X AF is a mildly alkaline soak cleaner developed for removing bar and liquid buffing compound residues from zinc die castings, aluminum, brass, and bronze. It can be used with or without ultrasonics.

KIMYA KE 190-AL is an acid etch-deoxidizer for aluminum and its alloys. It is particularly effective on buffed aluminum castings. It will emulsify residual soils and provide a very mild etch, thereby removing surface oxides. The product is formulated to simultaneously prevent smut formation on the surface.

KIMYA KS 558 A - Aluminum, because of its active nature, is easily corroded by water, humidity in the air, fingerprints, etc. Such surface corrosions readily react with the usual non-etch cleaners and give rise to surface attack by the cleaner or react with the cleaner to form films that are resistant to subsequent alkaline etch treatments. The net result of corrosion products reacting with the cleaner is that a splotchy surface condition results, which is emphasized more strongly by later caustic etching and anodizing. KIMYA 558-A has a surfactant blend that cleans aluminum effectively and leaves an oil free surface eliminating any surface attack on the aluminum

KIMYA 589-M is a mildly alkaline, non-silicate, non-etch soak cleaner for aluminum and its alloys. It has been specifically formulated to remove various process oils, including sulfurized oil and shop dirt without harmful effects on the surface and without attack on the underlying metal. Although formulated for aluminum, it can be used to soak clean all metals.

KIMYA KS 587 A is a moderately alkaline powdered blend especially designed for use as a soak cleaner for sensitive metals, but is highly effective for all metals. Its surfactant package makes it an excellent all around soak cleaner. It is effective on all of the usual shop soils.

KIMYA KS 657-LH is a mildly alkaline, non-silicated, \non-etch, liquid soak cleaner for
   aluminum and its alloys. It has been specifically formulated to remove various process oils and shop dirt without harmful effect on the surface and without attack on the underlying metal. Although formulated for aluminum, it can be used to soak clean all metals.
