How to use?

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Metasoak HDI is a water-based degreaser which is ideal for removing all tenacious grease, carbonised deposits and heavy residue build up from or metal including aluminium; glass, painted and plastic components. Use cold or hot up to 70ºC and dilute in the tank with up to 60-part water for most ultrasonic cleaning operations to achieve maximum results.

Dip Tanks

Use in a welded mild steel tank with a close-fitting lid. Dilute to between 1:30 and 1:10 depending on soil loading. For the removal of stubborn soils such as carbon on aluminium blocks and baking trays for example, use at a temperature of 85ºC; a soak time of 2 hours may be necessary. Rinse with clean water.
