Ideal for cleaning contaminants from glassware, metals, plastics, ceramic, porcelain, rubber and fiberglass. Excellent replacement for corrosive acids and hazardous solvents. USDA authorized. Dilute 1:100. pH 9.5

Most Alconox products require 2-5 day handling time. The exception to this is the 4 lbs boxes which we are now stocking. 4 lbs boxes can go out same or next day depending on how close the order is to cutoff.

Used to clean: Healthcare instruments, laboratory ware, vacuum equipment, tissue culture
ware, personal protective equipment, sampling apparatus, catheters, tubing, pipes, radioactive
contaminated articles, optical parts, electronic components, pharmaceutical apparatus,
cosmetics manufacturing equipment, metal castings, forgings and stampings, industrial
parts, tanks and reactors. Authorized by USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry
plants. Passes inhibitory residue test for water analysis. FDA certified.
Used to remove: Soil, grit, grime, buffing compound, slime, grease, oils, blood, tissue,
salts, deposits, particulates, solvents, chemicals, radioisotopes, radioactive contaminations,
silicon oils, mold release agents.
Surfaces cleaned: Corrosion inhibited formulation recommended for glass, metal, stainless
steel, porcelain, ceramic, plastic, rubber and fiberglass. Can be used on soft metals such as
copper, aluminum, zinc and magnesium if rinsed promptly. Corrosion testing may be advisable.
Cleaning method: Soak, brush, sponge, cloth, ultrasonic, flow through clean-in-place. Will
foam—not for spray or machine use.
Directions: Make a fresh 1% solution (2 1/2 Tbsp. per gal., 1 1/4 oz. per gal. or 10 grams
per liter) in cold, warm, or hot water. If available use warm water. Use cold water for blood
stains. For difficult soils, raise water temperature and use more detergent. Clean by soak,
circulate, wipe, or ultrasonic method. Not for spray machines, will foam. For nonabrasive
scouring, make paste. Use 2% solution to soak frozen stopcocks. To remove silver tarnish,
soak in 1% solution in aluminum container. RINSE THOROUGHLY—preferably with running
water. For critical cleaning, do final or all rinsing in distilled, deionized, or purified
water. For food contact surfaces, rinse with potable water. Used on a wide range of glass,
ceramic, plastic, and metal surfaces. Corrosion testing may be advisable.
