DARACLEAN 259 - 55 Gallon Drum 1

How Is Daraclean Different From Petroleum-Based Solutions?

An aqueous solution consists of a carefully formulated combination of water with specific neutralizers, surfactants, and saponifiers. Several solvents are applicable for general cleaning in the automotive, manufacturing, aerospace, and electronics industries; however, certain additives create complications regarding Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and the release of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP’s). Daraclean is water-based cleaner designed to effectively remove unwanted contaminants from aluminum or zinc alloys without creating an extensive amount of foam. As a low VOC cleaning solvent, Daraclean makes a suitable choice for soaking and agitation processes as well as spraying applications. The agent has a unique self-cleaning quality that allows it to have a longer fluid life. An increased fluid life reduces disposal requirements while supplying a dependable all-purpose cleaning aid. Daraclean is a beneficial choice for companies who desire to step away from more volatile products.

Daraclean Aqueous Cleaners Offer a Safer Contaminant Removal Method

What makes Daraclean aqueous cleaners superior for general contaminant elimination on parts or other items? Daraclean creates a minimal amount of foam throughout the removal process, is safe for a variety of metals, and aerospace qualified. Additional qualities such as biodegradability and low VOC’s make it a safer choice that reduces complications caused by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. Companies choosing this solution do not have to worry about metals rusting when applied at room temperature. Daraclean aqueous cleaners are recyclable meaning they have a longer duration of use than alternative choices. In particular, Daraclean 282 conforms to Boeing BAC 5763 for emulsion cleaning or water-based degreasing. It does not have these components as part of its formula:

• Chlorine
• Sulfur
• Phosphorous
• Nitrates

Certain temperatures and concentrations are recommended for each type of application; however, these items can be adjusted by companies using this solution to receive optimum performance. Daraclean aqueous cleaners are an applicable contaminant remover for soiling of an oily nature including mineral oils, coolants, rust inhibitors, and shop contaminants. The agent provides additional rust protection for in-process applications when not immediately rinsed from the objects surface. A small amount of foam is created when applied with cold water; however, no foam will be experienced if hot tap water is used. Companies using Daraclean are able to pretreat the agent by processes such as skimming or filtering prior to completing disposal. Local sewer district regulations determine the final disposal requirements once Daraclean aqueous cleaners have reached the end of their usage period.

Aqueous cleaning agents are capable of efficiently eliminating contaminants from a multitude of surfaces and often contain rust inhibitors. Additionally, parts may be dried immediately to further reduce the chance of rusting. Daraclean aqueous cleaners help companies minimize costs, labor processes, health risks, and problems experienced with frequent disposal. A water-based solution does acquire sludge, but can be skimmed or filtered thus limiting disposal to only three or four times each year. The solution does not have flammable qualities as experienced with petroleum-based products and limits the amount of VOC’s released throughout use. Aqueous products do clean a little differently than traditional petroleum-based products, but offer the same effectiveness without posing significant harm to handlers or the environment.
