Acrylic resins feature excellent transparency and durability, and are used in a broad range of applications from consumer items like lenses to industrial products like molding materials, coatings and adhesives. In addition, acrylic resins are also used in other areas, such as binders for paper/fiber processing, PC screens, display windows for cellular phones and light guide panels for liquid crystal display (LCD) backlights.
Due to their excellent durability and weatherability as coating materials, acrylic resins are used extensively in applications such as automotive, architectural and plastic coatings.
Acrylic resins have the below general characteristics.
? Appearance (gloss, build)
? Weather resistance
? Heat resistance
? Chemical resistance
? Water resistance
WHAT IS A DEGREASER?
A degreaser is a cleaner designed to remove grease, oils, cutting fluids, corrosion inhibitors, handling soils, fingerprints, and other contamination common in assembly, stamping and other metal fabrication in refineries, motor repair shops, airplane hangars, and factories, etc.. Degreasers go by a number of different names including precision cleaner, maintenance cleaner, as well as several specific for automotive repair such as carb cleaner or brake cleaner.
The objective for a degreaser is to remove the offending soil quickly, avoiding as much wiping and scrubbing as possible. Degreasing solvents are commonly packaged as an aerosol for convenience. Aerosols have the added advantage of providing a forceful spray that creates agitation and which penetrate small crevices.
Water-based degreasers are common in a trigger sprayer, or in gallon or drum containers for immersion or batch system cleaning.
Specialized equipment like ultrasonic or vapor degreasers are available for more automated cleaning. These processes are repeatable, so better suited for more critical cleaning applications, like aerospace or medical appliance maintenance.
Techspray offers a large selection of degreasers and maintenance cleaners under the G3?, E-LINE?, PWR-4?, and Precision-V brands, which range from economical heavy-industry cleaners to high precision solvents for sensitive components.
WHY DO I NEED A DEGREASER?
Dust, dirt, grease, and oxidation contamination can cause corrosion, slipping hazards, overheating, increase electrical resistance in contact areas, and many other issues. Degreasing may be required to prep for down-stream processes like painting or plating.
Cleaner Degreasers can clean oil, grease, oxides and handling contamination from equipment and assemblies that include:
Metal and fiber optic cable splices
Motors and transformers
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
Pneumatic and hydraulic assemblies
Electronics and electrical equipment
Industrial-strength degreasers are needed to remove grease, tar, asphalt, oil, and grime in these kinds of applications:
Clutches, armatures, generators, and compressors
Electrical motors and equipment
Bearings, chains, cables, pulleys and gear drives
Brakes, springs, and flywheels
