ChemPolish Ti6Al4V is formulated to chemically polish high Ti alloys and produce a surface as brilliant as on an electropolished substrate without the complexity and difficulty associated with electropolishing. ChemPolish Ti6Al4V will remove metal very slowly. If more aggressive metal removal is desired, treat initially with MicroPolish II (RDZ-2059, available from RBP), then treat with ChemPolish Ti6Al4V for final polish.
ChemPolish SS (RDZ-1815) is an acidic bath used for cleaning, polishing and passivating 300 series (austenitic) stainless steel to render it suitable for use in extreme environments such as high vacuum, medical and aerospace applications. The surface is cleaned completely of any organic contamination and is free of soluble inorganic residues.
CoCr Cleaner is an acidic bath used for cleaning and deoxidizing cobalt/chromium alloys to render them suitable for medical and aerospace applications. It removes weld or laser scale leaving a brilliant finish, without hydrogen embrittlement or halide-induced stress cracking. CoCr Cleaner will attack base metal very slowly, and in the process polish the metal. CoCr Cleaner may also be used as a chemical polish for 300 series stainless steel. It is more reactive towards stainless steel than on CoCr.
Descale Remover removes the manganese dioxide smut as well as other metal oxides solubilized by Alkaline Descale (RDZ-1734), which is available from RBP. Descale Remover is a mixed acid system which uses hydrochloric as the primary acid source. A strong inhibitor system is built-in to insure no metal attack and no hydrogen embrittlement. The inhibitor system will rinse with water and leave no residue on the metal after rinsing that would interfere with subsequent chemical polishing or plating.
A strong deoxidizer for removing extreme oxides formed by high temperature on Nitinol, and other Titanium alloys. MicroClean™ MV is strongly inhibited from attack on the metal, and will cause negligible metal attack, but usually will clean up essentially any oxide level in a short time (1-5 minutes) and metal loss within this time is minimal
MicroClean MV (A+B) is a version of MicroClean MV (RDZ-1995). MicroClean MV (A+B) is supplied as a two part system and offers the same functionality and performance as the original. The benefits of MicroClean MV (A+B) are long shelf life of individual components and increased flexibility in product shipping, storage and handling. MicroClean MV (A+B) is formulated for removing extreme oxides formed at high temperatures on titanium alloys including Nitinol. It is effective at oxide removal within a short contact time with negligible metal attack.
Medical components formed from nitinol, other titanium alloys and chrome alloys are often extruded, drawn and oxidized in the formation process, which creates organo-metallic compounds and oxides. These compounds are essentially impossible to remove without etching the metal, and therefore must be destroyed to be removed. MicroClean Ti destroys these organometallic compounds by removing the metal component, yet does not attack the base metal.
MicroPolish and MicroPolish II are two polishes formulated for titanium alloys. Each product acts as a cleaner/deoxidizer and slow chemical polish rapidly removing surface metal oxides but only slowly etching base metals. Of the two polishes, MicroPolish is characterized by a higher etch rate of the base metal. Overall, the etch rates are low for both polishes when compared to traditional deoxidizing chemistries.
