Bonderite C-IC 186 (was Deoxidine 186) is a phosphoric/sulphuric acid based metal cleaner and surface de-ruster for ferrous substrates. It can be used in a spray or immersion system to remove rust, light deposits of mill oil and corrosion initiators. It is optimised for steel surfaces, and can be used under specific conditions on aluminium and zinc (both of which will be lightly etched). This product should not be used on magnesium or yellow metals. Bonderite C-IC 186 can be used to prepare suitable surfaces for the application of a conversion coating, and where production volume is large, a spray application, in place of dipping, is recommended for economy and handling considerations. Work coated with mill oil would normally require no pre-cleaning, however heavy deposits of grease or drawing compounds should be removed prior to Bonderite C-IC 186 treatment. As Bonderite C-IC 186 contains phosphoric acid and sulphuric acid the rule of safe handling of hazardous products should be followed – appropriate protective clothing and footwear should be worn, together with chemical goggles/face shield (meeting BS2092). Good ventilation also applies.
