Aqueous Cleaning


Surface cleanliness is critical, especially in applications such as: rinsing prior to metal plating, anodizing, phosphating, painting, enameling, case-hardening and nitriding.

Nalco Pretreatment Solutions (PTS) supplies effective water treatment solutions, including Reverse Osmosis (RO) and/or Deionization (DI) for aqueous cleaning and rinsing of drag out contaminants. We provide the quality and quantity of water needed to achieve your goals and to optimize cleaning.

Optimized surface cleanliness improves your plating and anodizing processes. 

According to a US EPA Fact Sheet:
“Aqueous cleaners are water-based solutions that, unlike petroleum based solvents, are typically nonflammable and contain little or no volatile organic carbons. Instead of dissolving grease and solids, aqueous cleaners rely on heat, agitation, and soap action to break dirt into smaller particles. Although they clean differently, aqueous cleaners perform as well as solvents.”
