Branson GP General Purpose Cleaning Solution
Branson General Purpose Cleaning Solution, mixed in a concentration of 10 – 12% by volume, formulated for general purpose and maintenance cleaning applications, removes light oils, fingerprints, and particulates
For GROUND SHIPPING ONLY; chemicals CANNOT be AIR SHIPPED.
Branson GP General Purpose Cleaning Concentrate is a biodegradable caustic-free alkaline cleaner formulated for general purpose cleaning and maintenance cleaning where soil levels are relatively light.
GP concentrate solution is ideal for removing a wide range of soils like fingerprints, dust, packaging participates, and light oils and greases from metalworking and light machining operations. Applications include: metal stampings and machined components, glassware, rigid injection molded parts, and other components with light-to-intermediate soil levels.
Branson GP is mixed with water in a concentration of 10 to 12% by volume and can be used at temperatures ranging from ambient to 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Optimum cleaning performance is achieved at higher temperatures.
SHIPPING NOTE: Chemicals can only be shipped to destinations within the continental U. S. and Canada. Sorry, but they cannot be air shipped.
Do not use alcohol, gasoline, bleach, mineral acids, solutions with a flash point, semi-aqueous or combustible liquids in ultrasonic tanks, or you will void the warranty. Only use non-flammable solutions and water-based solutions.
Water-based solutions can be either slightly acidic or alkaline. They include detergents, soaps and industrial cleaners designed to remove specific soils.
Acidic water-based solutions: remove rust, tarnish or scale, They range from mild solutions that remove tarnish, to concentrated, inhibited acidic solutions that remove investment plaster, milk-stone, zinc oxide and rust from steel and cast iron as well as smut and heat-treat scale from hardened steel.
Alkaline water-based solutions: remove oil, grease, coolants, waxes, including carbonates, silicates and caustics. These cause emulsifying action, which keeps soil from redepositing on the cleaned surface, and improves cleaning action in hard water.
Change the cleaning solution periodically. Cleaning solutions can become contaminated with suspended soil particles which coat the tank bottom. This coating dampens the ultrasonic action and reduces cleaning efficiency. Certain solutions will cavitate better than others.
Heat and cavitation increases the chemical activity of cleaning solutions. Some materials may be damaged by this stronger chemical action. When in doubt, test run samples of items to be cleaned.
Caustic solutions: used to remove rust from steels, metal alloy corrosion and a variety of tenacious soils.
Solution amounts may vary. The amount you use depends on the detergent and the type of soil to be removed. Follow instructions on the solution container and refer to the table below for the ejects of solutions on metals.
