Ambex Metal Finishing Chemical
Ambex E2021 - Prevents pitting and flash rusting when used in conjunction with hydrochloric (muriatic) acid on steel.
Ambex 1-PR - Removes scales and rust from ferrous metals by soak, electro- or tumble cleaning.
Ambex 13 special - Special, highly alkaline powder that quickly strips heat trat burn from steel work. Also removes rust and phosphate coatings. Work acquires rust resistance.
Ambex 111-S - Highly alkaline barrel and vibratory finishing compound formulated to remove oil, light rust or scale and produce a moderate polish in one step.
Ambex 232 - High alkaline powder for use on ferrous work in tumbling barrels.
Ambex 217 - Moderate foaming. Good on oily soils and buffing compounds. Used at an extremely effective, liquid cleaner for buffering compound removal that causes absolutely no clouding, leaving aluminum surfaces mirror bright.
Ambex 222L - A general, non-alkaline liquid. Moderate foaming. Good on oily soils and buffing compounds. Used at low concentrations, remarkable long lived.
Ambex 230 - Powder leaved aluminum surfaces bright and active, ready for plating, chromating or anodizing.
Ambex 286 - Mildly alkaline, non-etch, emulsifying cleaner for aluminum and zinc parts. Good for oil and buffing compound removal.
Alkaline Cleaners (Liquid or powder)
Ambex 20B - Heavy duty alkaline powdered soak cleaner for removal of oily soils which accompany drawing, stamping, threading and similar operations. Outstanding detergent properties.
Ambex 62A - Developed to prevent oil build-up on plating cylinders thus preventing the problem of emulsified oils from carrying over into subsequent solutions on the barrel. For use with steel and copper. Excellent results when used as an electrocleaner.
Ambex 62C - Similar to 62A (above) with the added advantage of removing light rust and scale from ferrous work.
Ambex 63R - Highly effective soak and tumble cleaner for steel and brass.
Ambex 215 - Strong alkaline powder, economical cleaner for general purpose use.
Ambex 231L - Liquid with a high concentration of builders and synergistic surfactancts designed to minimize re deposition of oily soils and to rinse cleanly.
Ambex 233 - High alkaline soak cleaning powder for steel, copper and brass. Designed to minimize re deposition of oily soils and to rinse cleanly.
Ambex 245 - Premium powdered soak cleaner for steel and copper work. Non-silicated.
Ambex FNC-1077 - Aqueous alkaline cleaning compound for dissolving carbon, oils, and coking from gas turbine engine fuel nozzle assemblies.
Ambex WOF - Inexpensive, general purpose, moderately high alkaline, soak cleaner for ferrous and cuprous alloys. No phosphates or chelators.
Ambex WP2 - Highly effective, moderately alkaline economical tumble cleaner for ferrous and cuprous alloys.
Aluminum Etchants & Deoxidizers
Ambex 315DX - Acid deoxidizer and desmutter for wrought and extruded aluminum alloys.
Ambex 662 - Deoxidizer aluminum alloys prior to anodizing, bright dipping, plating, painting, phosphating or wielding with minimal waste disposal problems.
Ambex 821 - Grain refiner used with caustic etchant (Ambex E-1000). Provides an even matte finish without staining.
Ambex ADS-2023 - Acidic, liquid pickling compound that rapidly removes oxides, tarnish, stains, smut, scale and other acid soluble soils from aluminum and its alloys. Solutions are non-fuming and easy to maintain.
Ambex E-1000 - Granular alkaline etchant for aluminum with minimum foaming. Sequestering action prevents sludging and sealing of heating coils and tank walls.
Buffing Compound Removers
BC-23 - Powder for burnishing copper, brass, stainless steel, aluminum and zinc. Yields a dense foam, which prevents scratching. Outstanding on stainless steel and steel.
BC-172P - General purpose concentrated powder- excellent on all metals. Easily handled in waste treatment.
BC-176 - Powder that leaves work with an anti-tarnish lubricating film that readily sheds water and facilitates subsequent assembly operations.
BC-165 - Mildly acidic powder that removes tarnish as it burnishes. Imparts a beautiful bright golden finish to brass.
BC-168 - Economical, general purpose burnishing compound.
BC-174 - Outstanding burnishing. Leaves a slight protective, lubricating film.
BC-174W - Same as BC-174 but without film so parts may be subsequently lacquered.
Ambex 16 - A "Workhouse" liquid that produces a high, bright, mirror like luster on aluminum, brass, copper, gold, silver, and zinc base. It is easily metered into automated mass finishing setups. Provides excellent rust protection to steel work. Will not produce after corrosion on zinc base parts and will prevent the tarnishing of brass during long time burnishing operations. Provides mild rust prevention to steel parts.
Ambex Soak 6 - Neutral powdered cleaner for aluminum, zinc diecast and other metals. Often used ultrasonicly.
Ambex 212 - Premium liquid concentration for soak and ultrasonics cleaning. Intended for removal of buffing compounds and drawing oils. Will not cause dullness or tarnish on aluminum, brass, copper or zinc.
Ambex 217 - Neutral liquid - excellent capacity.
Ambex 229L - Slightly alkaline, long lived, very effective.
Ambex 242 - Extremely rapid, non-etching powder. For aluminum, copper, brass, and steel.
