 Primary Application

Oakite® 33 is a liquid acidic compound designed for removing light grease, oils, shop dirt, flux, rust, oxides and heat scale and for preparing metals for painting. It is also used for cleaning and conditioning aluminum prior to surface conversion processing. Another application, recommended by stainless steel manufacturers, is the use of Oakite 33 for cleaning stainless steel to remove dirt and embedded soils in the metal.
