The selection of a cleaner to meet your needs is one of the most important steps in designing your plating system. Modern electroplating and metal finishing applications require the highest standard of cleanliness
to assure consistent quality. Most problems with failure of the bond between basis metal and the finish can
be traced to improper cleaning.
The best cleaner for your application should be selected based on the following considerations: • • The base metal • • Soil to be removed • • Mineral content of the process water • • Limitations of your plating line.
Any special requirements of your process will be taken into consideration in making a recommendation for
a cleaning process. Our experienced laboratory staff will be happy to develop a cleaning process for you
upon receiving a representative sample of your parts. Contact your Luster-On Technical Representative or
