Designed for use with our industrial ultrasonic range, Ferrocarb is a concentrated mixture of surfactants, seqestrants and caustic alkali. Ferrocarb is particularly effective in cleaning the ferrous parts of internal combustion engines that have become heavily contaminated in service, e.g. valves and cylinder heads. It is especially effective in removing carbon buildup, paint, rust and lead deposits from such components. It is also used in decarbonising other components such as rubber moulds. Effects on materials: When Ferrocarb is used in the prescribed manner no significant corrosion is likely to occur on ferrous metals. Ferrocarb will attack aluminium, zinc and tin rapidly and is therefore not suitable for use on these metals. Cadmium, copper and its alloys are slowly attacked. Polythene, PVC and PTFE are substantially unaffected but Ferrocarb will degrade many plastics and paints. Glass and ceramics will be etched. Typical applications:
- Automotive - carbon deposit removal, stripping paint, lifting surface rust
- Cast iron and steel housings - heavy machine parts
- Steel anilox rollers
Ferrocarb alkaline metal cleaner effectively removes carbon, paint, rust and lead deposits from ferrous metal parts such as valves and cylinder heads.
