PPG introduces Ultrax low-temperature immersion cleaners

September 13, 2011

PPG Industries’ industrial coatings business introduced Ultrax LT5620 and Ultrax LT5630 low-temperature immersion cleaners, which are designed to remove soils and contaminants from metal surfaces in immersion or dip cleaning processes. The products follow commercially successful Ultrax 7610, 7620 and 7630 low-temperature spray cleaners, which PPG introduced in 2009. Unlike conventional cleaners that work at temperatures of 120 to 180 degrees Farenheit, Ultrax LT5620 and LT5630 immersion cleaners can perform at temperatures as low as 85 degrees Farenheit and will work well on most soils at 100 degrees Farenheit. Ultrax low-temperature cleaners offer the following benefits: lower energy usage; lower water consumption (less water evaporation); safer work environment (less exposure to hot chemicals); improved parts appearance, with less streaking, mottling and dried-on cleaner residue; exceptional rinsing that helps parts stay “wet” longer; and reduced chance of flash rusting between process stages. Ultrax immersion cleaners are solvent-free, low-phosphate and designed for use with PPG zirconium, zinc and iron pretreatment products.
