Daraclean 282

Alkaline Aqueous Cleaner

A low-foaming, all-purpose alkaline cleaning solution, Daraclean® 282 is an excellent cleaner for a broad spectrum of soils.

This multi-purpose industrial cleaner has excellent soil-rejecting properties and suspends soils until they settle and can be removed by filtering or skimming, for a cleaning bath which lasts much longer than other water-based cleaners.

Daraclean 282 can be used in concentrations up to 25 percent (20 percent for CARB compliance) in immersion, ultrasonic, spray and steam applications.

Moderately alkaline, with low foam levels, Daraclean 282 contains inhibitors to prevent metal corrosion, and has no phosphates and is hard water tolerant. 

Daraclean 282 meets all major aerospace specifications for NDT cleaning, is safe to use on most metals and is non-aggressive on aluminum, magnesium and titanium alloys.
