Cleaners

Optimize your operations with the help of McLube Cleaning Solutions

Overview

 

Selecting the appropriate cleaner for your operation will help reduce the frequency and duration of cleaning steps and ultimately improve finished product quality. McLube offers material-specific cleaners as well as a general-purpose cleaner suitable for metallic and some non-metallic surfaces.

 

To ensure adequate wetting and bonding of release coatings to molds, mandrels, and other equipment, manufacturers must first adequately remove prior release coatings, residual materials, and grime from tooling surfaces. Applying release agents or anti-stick coatings to fouled tooling can lead to poor surface finish, higher rejection rates, and more downtime spent cleaning. McLube’s tailor-made cleaners will make removing even the most tenacious materials easier to ensure your operations run smoothly.

 

Each McLube Cleaner was designed for easy removal of a particular material or materials with varying attributes to suit individual needs. All of our cleaners will remove dirt, grime, rust, and fouling particles.
