ZERUST®/EXCOR® AxxaWash™ NW-10C is a mildly alkaline, water-based preservation cleaner with a wide range of operating temperatures.

Product Description

Product Description

ZERUST® AxxaWash™ NW-10C water-based preservation cleaner is used in immersion, ultrasonic, and low to ultra-high pressure (UHP) spray cleaning modes for effective hydrocarbon soil removal and deactivating common corrosion-causing anionic contaminants, such as chlorides and sulfates left by metalworking fluids. Following cleaning, you may rinse and remove AxxaWash™ NW-10C from the metal surface using RO, D/I, or distilled water or left on the metal surface as a dry-in-place preservation cleaner and flash-rust inhibitor. Alternatively, AxxaWash™ NW-10C cleans and prepares the metal surface for long-term water or solvent-based rust inhibitor/preventative such as ZERUST® Axxanol™ or Axxatec™ product lines. Consequently,  AxxaWash™ NW-10C, available as a liquid concentrate, allows for dilution according to the application. Additionally, it does not contain alkylphenol ethoxylates, boron salts, phosphates, or silicates, is non-flammable, and complies with Global Automotive Declarable Substance, TSCA, RoHS, and REACH requirements. Furthermore, speak with your ZERUST®/EXCOR® sales representative to obtain your operator guide.
