Degreasing is widely used to remove contaminants on metal surfaces prior to applying a conversion coating treatment. The contaminates can include quench oils, stamping lube, silicone, lubricants, welding smut and residue.

As a vital step in a majority of parts manufacturing, degreasing/washing of components ensures that a product meets quality specifications. Typically, parts must be washed before, after, or between processes, and sometimes need to be washed at multiple stages. Degreasing/washing must be done prior to application of topical surface treatments or assembly.

A variety of washing systems are employed to meet specific washing and degreasing requirements. As a customer required verification of cleanliness, JTF utilizes standard Dynes testing to determine degrees of “clean.”

Heavy, light, and a dry-to-touch options of organic and inorganic rust preventatives or inhibitors are available. Also available to this process is an extra step of SPIN DRY to remove excess rust preventative from parts with threads.
