Heavy Duty Alkaline Cleaner for Wire Saw Slurries
ULTRACLEAN 1435-A is a KOH (potassium hydroxide)-based high performance aqueous cleaner for use in agitated soak tanks or ultrasonic cleaning systems. ULTRACLEAN 1435-A is particularly suitable for removing both PEG and oil-based slurries. The primary use for ULTRACLEAN 1435-A is for removal of wire saw slurries from silicon, sapphire, silicon carbide wafers, and quartz crystals. It can also be used for cleaning ceramics and metal parts.

*Typical Properties do not constitute exact specifications.
Dilute with deionized water to 3-8% concentration and use at temperatures up to 90°C. A 2-5 minute ultrasonic immersion in 6% ULTRACLEAN 1435-A followed by a deionized water rinse is sufficient for most applications.
ULTRACLEAN 1435-A works more efficiently when used in ultrasonic baths. For normal cleaning, prior to installing circuitry, we recommend 40KHZ or 58KHZ. For very fine cleaning 132KHZ or 192KHZ is recommended.
Heavy soils: up to 5% Potassium Hydroxide (45%) can be added to increase cleaning efficiency.
