Premium Range of Innovative Fluids
Ensitech has invested heavily in market-leading research and development to create a complete, premium range of innovative fluids for every aspect of stainless steel surface preparation, weld cleaning and finishing. In addition to this, Ensitech fluids are NSF certified and conform to the requirements of the NSF Non-Food Compounds Registration Programme. The NSF mark is your assurance that Ensitech pre, post and weld cleaning fluids have been tested and certified by one of the most respected independent certification organisations in existence today.
If you place a high priority on cleaning quality and speed, passivation and safety, use your TIG Brush with genuine Ensitech fluids. By following the recommended procedures of Ensitech’s Surface Finishing System® you can be confident of superior results.
Removal of contaminants prior to welding is a sensible strategy to ensure firstly that the best weld quality is obtained and then a quick and effective clean and passivation is achieved with the TIG Brush weld cleaning process.
Developed to remove residues such as light oils and greases on stainless steel surfaces. Lingering contaminants such as dirt, dust and oil may react during the welding and lead to defects, negatively affecting the quality of your weld and your desired finish.
CHOOSING THE APPROPRIATE CLEANING FLUID
With a choice of four innovative cleaning fluids from chemically stringent to high-powered, genuine TIG Brush stainless steel cleaning fluids simultaneously clean and passivate with proven results.
A light-duty, high performance weld cleaning fluid, which cleans, polishes and passivates stainless steel. Its Non-Dangerous rating makes it slightly easier to handle and economical on freight costs. For best results, neutralize with TB-42 after cleaning.
This high-powered premium stainless steel weld cleaning fluid is the strongest, fastest cleaning fluid in the range. With the highest quality components at high concentrations, TB-25 gives the user unequalled performance in cleaning, polishing and passivating on the harshest stainless steel welds. For best results, neutralize with TB-42 after cleaning. * TB-25 is classified as a Dangerous Good (DG) for transport.
A biodegradable stainless steel weld-cleaning fluid developed for use in facilities where corrosive chemicals are not permitted. Environmentally friendly, it cleans as effectively as TB-25, but does not polish. For best results, neutralize with TB-41 after cleaning.
When you have a need for added safety, this custom designed and patented fluid is pH neutral, fast-acting and needs no separate neutralization process. It cleans and passivates without polishing, leaves no white frosting and does not alter high-polish stainless. Environmentally safe TB-31ND allows maximum safety in use, handling, storage and transport.
NEUTRALIZING THE SURFACE
Before using any of the TIG Brush neutralizing fluids, rinse off the cleaning fluid thoroughly with clean water. Then apply the appropriate neutralizing fluid followed by a final water rinse to remove any residual acid and eliminate the formation of ‘white frosting’ on your finished product. White frosting may occur after many days so it is important to follow this neutralizing process as soon as possible after cleaning.
Also a non-dangerous (non-flammable, non-corrosive) formulation, TB-41 contains a range of fast acting, effective components that neutralize any residual TB--30ND components. TB-41 will work within seconds so after application, a water rinse is recommended to removal all neutralized chemicals and excess TB-41.
A non-dangerous (non-flammable, non-corrosive) formulation specifically developed for neutralization of TB-21ND and TB-25 without the development of any toxic or corrosive products. TB-42 neutralizing fluid is an important preventative step in the complete removal of any acidic chemicals on the work surface.
Application of a finishing fluid will increase surface reflectability and prevent your perfect finished surfaces from marking through handling.
Cleans, brightens but also resists handling marks by leaving a molecular level layer on the surface of the stainless steel. Wipe or spray the cooled finished surface with TB-50, rinse down with water then buff with a microfiber cloth to achieve a brilliant shine and fingerprint resistant finish.
Be proud of your work. Ensitech’s marking fluids can be used to permanently mark stainless with branding, part numbers, barcodes etc. Ask for details of our Branding Kit and custom stencils.
Used with your TIG Brush with a specially engineered conductive head and stencils, TB-90 creates permanent sharp and dark lettering, logos, or any other design on your stainless steel. The process is user friendly, safe and fast with outstanding results within seconds.
Used with your TIG Brush, a specially engineered conductive head and heat resistant stencils, TB-95 creates a sharp, clear engraving for lettering, logos, or any other design on your stainless steel. The process is unequaled in speed, ease and permanency in adding an engraving to stainless steel.
