STEEL TREATMENT PROCESSES - STEEL CLEANERS


NORDAC CDN-NP
A non-phosphate formulated cleaner for thorough soak cleaning of steel parts. The surfactants used in this formulation were chemically selected to displace the contaminants from the work rather than emulsify them. The NORDAC CDN-NP is of the non-rosin acid and non-fatty acid type.

NORDAC EC-333
A dustless alkaline powder containing a biodegradable surfactant system that works as a heavy-duty electrocleaner on ferrous metals.

NORDAC SC-100-NP
A mildly alkaline, non-phosphated spray cleaner used for inspection cleaning and in plant corrosion protection of steel surfaces. A dustless powder containing a biodegradable surfactant package.

NORDAC 34-HDS
An alkali soak cleaner with high detergency characteristics. Exhibits excellent cleaning action through a wide temperature range of operation. Equally effective in both hard and soft water.

NORDAC 623
A formulated mildly alkaline, non-silicated cleaner non-etch type, for cleaning aluminum, steel, and brass. The surfactant system in the NORDAC 623 is of the biodegradable type.

NORDAC 1315
A formulated cleaner for fast, thorough electrolytic cleaning of steel, copper and various copper-based alloys. All ingredients contribute to the overall cleaning action. The surfactants used in this formulation were chemically selected for high detergency and stability to temperature and oxidation to give dustless, facilitating the handling of the material. The NORDAC 1315 cleaner performs exceptionally well in hard water areas.

NORDAC 2680
A powdered alkaline compound formulated for the non-electrolytic chemical dissolution of rust and heat treat scale on ferrous metals. Can be used to remove phosphate coatings and scale. Does not contain sodium cyanide.

NORDAC 365-L
Is formulated for use as a liquid inhibitor for hydrochloric acid pickling solution.

NORDAC 365-L in conjunction with hydrochloric acid is used for the bright pickling of steel to remove mill scale, rust, and other forms of oxides with minimum attack on the exposed surface.


It is used to overcome the common difficulties encountered in the pickling of steel, such as over pickling, smudge formation, and pitting. The surface of the steel remains bright and uniform when pickled in hydrochloric acid solution containing NORDAC 365-L inhibitor.

NORHIB 98-L
An organic type inhibitor formulation for use in sulfuric acid pickling solutions for the preparation of chemically clean steel surfaces prior to metallic coatings there on.

Norhib can be easily rinsed off the pickled steel surface and therefore, can be used in acid pickling solutions that do not have an alkaline cleaner following the pickling step.
