Protecting What’s Important: Rust Prevention Awareness
The spring season is officially here and that means change is in the air (literally). Flowers bloom after a long winter, leaves turn from brown to green, and the cold air gets warmer. For the most part, this change is welcomed; however, when it comes to your ferrous metal parts, change is the last thing you want to happen. Rust can occur in any season, but with return of humidity levels in the spring, it is the perfect time for corrosion to arise like the returning flowers. It goes without saying that corrosion brings about a number of issues, increased rejection rate (rusted parts that need to be thrown away) being one of them. To protect your parts and avoid losing money, it’s time to start thinking about how you can prevent this unwelcome change now.

What All Modified Alcohol Users Should Know
If you are working with a vacuum degreaser, chances are you are using either a hydrocarbon or modified alcohol solvent. Of the two, it can be said that modified alcohol has a bigger audience because it requires very little monitoring yet yields high-quality results. (Not to mention it also cleans both polar and non-polar soils, doesn’t use water, is VOC free, and is low cost.) No matter if this is the first or even twentieth time you’ve used the solvent, there are always ways to ensure you are using modified alcohol to the best of its ability.
Our cleaning experts have taken a deeper dive into this topic a few different ways so that they can present you with the best information. And the best part is they are giving it to you for free!
- Our cleaning expert Ethan Mueller has taken the time to compile everything you need to know about modified alcohol into a helpful user guide. In this guide, you will learn about routine testing, maintenance, quality control considerations, and more. It heavily revolves around our popular modified alcohol-based solvent METALNOX M6386 but also includes general information as well.
- Wayne Raney, KYZEN’s Process Engineer, recently gave a broad yet short overview about all things modified alcohol in his latest Tech 2 Tech session. You can not only watch the video on the topic, but also download the Questions and Answers that may cover your own questions.
