Multiple METALNOX Solutions Help Santa’s Sleigh Shine
Santa’s Sleigh has come and gone for another year, delivering gifts and Christmas cheer. Though most slept through the night, Santa’s sleigh was shiny and bright even if we weren’t awake to see it. What gave the vehicle its glimmer? Successful cleaning applications using KYZEN METALNOX products.
The body of the sleigh is made from aluminum to provide strength but keep the vehicle light. Before Santa’s elves repaint the sleigh it’s iconic red color for the most important flight of the year, the body is stripped, sanded then sprayed clean with METALNOX M6318 to remove oil, grease, emulsions, and lubricants it collects during rigorous test flights throughout the year.
A flying sleigh making millions of stops is only as good as it’s landing skids. A skilled team of elves in the sleigh maintenance shop rely on METALNOX M6310 when cleaning the sleigh’s skids of machining oils, burned on carbon, manufacturing soils, and other dirty materials collected atop our roofs each year. The skids are made of light but strong aluminum alloy and, as a bonus, M6310, protects them from the threat of corrosion from snowy and icy surfaces.
How does a sleigh heavily loaded with millions of pounds of presents for delivery worldwide make so many stops? A highly effective, high-performance brake system comprised of aluminum and steel parts! After a night of puddle-jumping from roof to roof, the elves of the sleigh maintenance team use METALNOX M6353 to clean burned on carbon and carbonaceous soils from the braking system without damaging or discoloring them.
Now that you know Santa’s little secret, check out what KYZEN’S METALNOX products can do for your metal cleaning challenges.
