10 key questions for choosing the right parts cleaning agent

An effective metal cleaning process begins with the right choice of the cleaning medium

For many high precision industries such as aerospace, automotive or medical technology, industrial parts cleaning is crucial to quality assurance. Insufficiently cleaned parts can affect many subsequent processes such as coating, welding, bonding and assembling.

When choosing metal cleaning media, people often ask: “What’s better – solvent or aqueous cleaning?”. The answer is: it depends.

In fact, the question has never been about which one is better. It is rather: what are your requirements, goals and expectations and how can these demands be best fulfilled?

Making the right metal cleaning decision depends on a myriad of factors – technical, economic, safety and sustainability. The optimal decision should work to balance those needs.

In our guidance paper, we have highlighted 10 key questions concerning cleaning quality, economic efficiency and environmental impact that you should consider when choosing the right cleaning approach for your specific application. 

You'll also learn:

•           What factors impact the long-term costs of your cleaning process
•           Why the types, sizes and complexities of your metal parts matter
•           How you can determine the strength of a cleaning agent
•           Why “polarity” plays a decisive role in effective cleaning
•           What makes for a sustainable cleaning approach
