Ardrox 1618 is a concentrated blend of surfactants, sequestrants, and caustic alkali that effectively cleans the ferrous parts of internal combustion engines. This cleaner removes carbon, rust, and lead deposits from components such as valves and cylinder header. Ardrox 1618 also effectively decarbonizes other components such as rubber molds.
Ardrox 185 is a powdered, highly alkaline product that removes rust and scale from ferrous metals in immersion tanks. Ardrox 185 can also remove carbon deposits and some paints. Because it is alkaline, Ardrox 185 will not cause hydrogen embrittlement. When used with Ardrox 188, Ardrox 185 can be used to remove heat scale from hot-end components of jet engines.
Ardrox 185 L is a liquid, highly alkaline product that removes rust and scale from ferrous metals in immersion tanks, but it is also capable of removing carbon deposits, and some air dried paints. Because it is alkaline, Ardrox 185 L will not cause hydrogen embrittlement.
Ardrox 6333 is an aqueous-based liquid concentrate comprised of a blend of alkali builders, sequestrants, corrosion inhibitors and biodegradable surfactants.

Ardrox 6367 is a liquid alkaline product formulated to clean the compressor sections of gas turbine engines. A blend of detergents, it is solvent free and removes atmospheric soils, oils, carbon and salt deposits during “in-situ” hot-fired and cold motor washes. Ardrox 6367 is safe on all aircraft metal, plastics, windows, etc., and is non-flammable and biodegradable.
Ardrox 6375 is a liquid mildly alkaline product formulated to clean the compressor section of gas turbine engines. A blend of detergents and emulsifiers, it removes atmospheric soils, oils, carbon, and salt deposits during on-line "fired" and crank soak washes. Ardrox 6375 is safe on all aircraft metals, plastics, windows, etc., and is non-flammable and biodegradable.
Ardrox 6376 is a liquid non-phosphate multi-metal cleaner for tank immersion application. A blend of alkaline salts and wetting agents, it is inhibited to safely remove oils, greases, and other production soils from aluminum, copper, magnesium and titanium. Ardrox 6376 can also be used to clean ferrous metals and is free-rinsing.
Ardrox 6377 is a liquid alkaline product formulated to clean the compressor sections of gas turbine engines. A blend of detergents and emulsifiers, it removes atmospheric soils, oils, carbon, and salt deposits during "in-situ" hot-fired and cold motor washes. Ardrox 6377 is safe on all turbine metals, and is non-flammable and biodegradable.
Ardrox 6471 is a heavy-duty, liquid cleaner formulated to remove difficult soils in agitated parts cleaning tanks. It will remove heavy soils, grease, cosmoline and other production soils. Because it is inhibited, it can be used to clean aluminum aerospace parts prior to chemical processing. Ardrox 6471 is a blend of alkalies, silicates, and low foam wetting agents. It is not affected by hard water, and is safe on most metals.
