  • Excellent cleaning performance and high limescale-dissolving power
  • Removal of mineral-based, oxidation and corrosion deposits
  • Low corrosion rates on metallic and non-metallic materials
  • Effective even in hard water
  • Higher solubility for various salts and oxides than phosphoric acid: prevention of precipitates
  • Owing to a good wetting effect, only small additions of surfactants are required to fine-tune the cleaner
  • Miscible in all proportions with polar and hydrophilic solvents e. g. water, alcohols, esters and ketones
  • No crystallization or phase separation occurs at temperatures down to - 30 °C
  • Low foaming
