Medical components formed from nitinol, other titanium alloys and chrome alloys are often extruded, drawn and oxidized in the formation process, which creates organometallic compounds and oxides. These compounds are often difficult to remove without etching the metal, and therefore must be destroyed to be removed. While simple organic soils can be removed with many degreasers, such cleaning products are likely to be ineffective when the soils are “baked-in”. MicroClean Ti is a remedy for such situations and assures that the subsequent steps of deoxidizing and electropolishing are fully effective.
Alkaline Descale is designed to descale CoCr (cobalt chrome) and other chromium based alloys before electropolishing. It will convert insoluble oxides to soluble forms and thus assure uniform subsequent processing.
Alkaline Descale is provided in two parts, A and B.
