Other Cleaning Solutions

CO-42 Cleaning solution

A cleaning and degreasing fluid with many of the performance characteristics of 1.1.1 Trichloroethane, but without the ozone depleting properties.

Effectiveness
CO-42 cuts through contamination such as lapping and polishing residue, grease, oils and general surface contamination.

Evaporation
CO-42 is relatively quick drying, but not so fast as to leave dried staining on the surfaces of products. The controlled wetting and evaporation properties of CO-42 make it extremely versatile and efficient.

Versatility
Able to act as an extremely efficient cleaning agent for all metals, most plastics, ceramics, glass and similar materials.
