Ultrasonic Cleaning Fluids - Solutions For Ultrasonic Cleaners
Kemet offer the finest in biodegradable cleaning fluids. These are specialist formulated concentrated detergents available in neutral, alkaline and acid types. The detergents work in two ways: It reduces surface tension and intensifies ultrasonic cavitation & Dissolves and binds the dirt which has been loosened by the ultrasonics.
Disclaimer: Kemet recommend that any cleaning fluid should be tested on a sample of the component to be cleaned to ensure it does not damage the material and offer free trials to establish the optimum process.
With more than 400 high performance formulations providing a solution to most cleaning challenges.
- Free consultations and trials to adapt formulations to specific requirements and optimise cleaning processes.
- Environmentally aware process development to offer ecological solutions.
- Physiochemical and physical wastewater treatment systems to comply with environmental legislation.
- Compatible with Kemet range of ultrasonic cleaners.

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.
CO-42 cuts through contamination such as lapping and polishing residue, grease, oils and general surface contamination.
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.
Able to act as an extremely efficient cleaning agent for all metals, most plastics, ceramics, glass and similar materials.
C70 Cleaning solution
Kemet C70 is a solvent cleaning and degreasing fluid with all of the characteristics needed to remove grease, oil and residues from parts. It is supplied in a pressurised container complete with detachable extended spray tube for reaching into the most difficult areas.
- Highly efficient degreasing solvent
- Very fast evaporation rate
- No staining
- Instantly removes lapping and polishing residue
- Cost effective
- Versatile and can be used on all metals, ceramics etc. (Always test small area first)
- Contains no ozone depleting substances
