TechKleen FT161 Alkaline Parts Cleaner



TechKleen 161  is a heavy-duty liquid cleaner which is effective in both spray and agitated immersion applications. It is intended for removing difficult soils such as drawing compounds, heavy oils and greases from ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

As a silicated alkaline cleaner, when paired with the TechKleen FT1000, the  TechKleen FT161  provides  excellent corrosion protection. In addition,  TechKleen 161  rejects the oils it removes. The oils can be easily skimmed away to provide a long bath life.
