MicroClean EV3 is a deoxidizer for removing oxides on titanium and titanium alloys including Nitinol. It has a relatively benign safety profile due to the absence of hydrofluoric acid. This feature makes this product relatively less aggressive but the product’s effectiveness can be increased by heating.
Microclean 2160 is formulated for cleaning and deoxidizing titanium and titanium alloys. It is used without or with hydrogen peroxide, which accelerates the cleaning action. Without hydrofluoric acid and with weaker acidity it is a rather mild chemistry, great for lighter oxides and environments with stricter chemical safety rules.
