CoCr Cleaner is an acidic bath used for cleaning and deoxidizing cobalt/chromium alloys to render them suitable for medical and aerospace applications. It?s relatively mild nature makes it suitable for light oxides. Use Alkaline Descale (RDZ-1734-5) (available from RBP) for heavier/colored oxides.
CoCr Cleaner may also be used as a chemical polish for 300 series stainless steel. It is more reactive towards stainless steel than on CoCr.
ChemPolish RL (RDZ-1934) is an acidic bath used for cleaning, polishing and passivating 300 series (austenitic) stainless steel to render it suitable for use in extreme environments such as high vacuum, medical and aerospace applications. The surface is cleaned completely of any organic contamination and is free of soluble inorganic residues. ChemPolish RL (RDZ-1934) leaves a clean finish, free of etching, hydrogen embrittlement or halide induced stress cracking.
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.
