Overcome the Challenges of Cleaning Aluminum
Cleaning aluminum is far different and more challenging (one might say more aggravating!) than cleaning stainless steel. Metal finishers worry about over-etching, difficult stains and damaging expensive aluminum. This webinar will cover the basic principles that make aluminum unique, cleaners that remove stubborn contaminants and case studies on how to reduce the cost, complexity, and chemical consumption of cleaning aluminum.

Special considerations when cleaning aluminum:
• How is the aluminum being used? Will a caustic soda based cleaner impact this?
• What’s the contaminant you are trying to remove?
• Is over-etched aluminum a concern?
• Have you thought about post-cleaning waste treatment?
