Alkaline Powder for Removing Oil, Grease, Carbon, Rust, Scale & Paint

If you require product selection assistance or technical advice please contact us.

Accepta 3528 is a technically advanced industrial cleaning product that has a detergent type action, penetrating the surface film and mechanically lifting deposits from the underlying sound material, breaking them up and dispersing them into the body of the solution.

As the cleaning operation of this high performance product is a surface action, it ceases as soon as the base material is clean, eliminating the risk of dissolution or pitting of the base metal.

The addition of water softeners ensure that none of Accepta 3528's power is lost, even in the hardest waters.

Accepta 3528's integral dispersants also ensure that contamination removed from dirty surfaces is held in solution to prevent re-soiling.

Unlike many acid cleaners, there are no harmful or corrosive vapours and as Accept 3528 does not attack sound ferrous metals, the need for rubber-lined tanks and stainless steel equipment is eliminated and mild steel tanks and trays are adequate for the cleaning process.

Accept 3528 is a high efficiency, low maintenance industrial cleaning product that is the safe and economical answer to most degreasing problems.

Application & Dosage Information


A warm solution containing 50g Accepta 3528 in a litre of solution rapidly  emulsifies simple films of oils and greases.

Removal of Carbon, Carbonised Oil & Paint

Concentrations between 50 g/litre and 200 g/litre heated to 90-100°C should be employed. The tank immersion technique is recommended in order to make maximum use of the heat available.

Agitation of tanks either mechanically or by air stream assists in the breaking up of soils.

Alkaline Derusting

Accepta 3528 at a concentration of 200 g/litre is maintained at or near to a rolling boil in a suitable tank, where agitation may be applied either from compressed air or mechanical means.

Rusty parts are immersed contained in basket work trays and allowed to soak for 10 minutes in the case of light flash rusting or for up to 45 minutes for severe corrosion and heat treatment scales.

After removal from the cleaning tank, parts should be rinsed immediately in hot water and either oiled or given an inhibitor treatment in order to prevent re-rusting.

It should be realised that the chemically clean surface achieved by cleansing in Accepta 3528 is vulnerable to re-tarnishing.

Maintenance of the Solution

During its useful life a solution of Accepta 3528 is limited to skimming off surface oils and replacing evaporation losses with additions of water.

Important - Neither the powder nor its solutions should be allowed to make contact with aluminium alloys, zinc or zinc-based alloy, tin or its alloys or lead-based materials, since these metals are readily soluble in alkaline solutions.

It is always advisable to carry out a 'Control Of Substances Hazardous to Health' (COSHH) assessment before use.
