FoundryGeneral® Metal Cleaner 4375 is a non-chlorinated blend of ingredients formulated for cleaning tooling and core boxes in the foundry industry. Foundry Metal Cleaner 4375 is engineered to remove cold box resins, no bake resins, hot box resin and release agent build-up from metal tooling and build-up in metal core boxes. It does not contain any chlorinated or fluorocarbon solvents.
This unique formula is effective in cleaning even the most complex core box designs. Due to its relatively slow evaporation rate, FoundryGeneral® Metal Cleaner 4375 remains active on the contaminated surface for long periods of time, making it more effective than other cleaners. FoundryGeneral® Metal Cleaner 4375 is designed for “on-line” Cold Box tool maintenance.

FoundryGeneral® Metal Cleaner 4375 is used as received. It can be applied using either spray or brush applications. To provide proper removal, it is recommended that the product be allowed to set for a period of approximately three (3) to ten (10) minutes, depending on the severity and thickness of the resin to be removed. Due to the relatively slow evaporation rate, when compared to Methylene Chloride based formulas, additional care or air blow off may be necessary before resuming production. Please refer to the MSDS for proper safety instructions.
Spray or brush the metal cleaner directly on the build-up areas. Allow it to soak for 15 minutes. Remove softened films.
Small parts can be immersed and soaked in the cleaner.
Remove all excess cleaner residue before recommissioning the tooling back into the process.
Foundry Meal cleaner 4375 can also be used for cleaning tooling at the machine to clean resin build up or blocked vents .
CAUTION : Can attack non metallic parts such as plastic tooling. On plastic tooling such as epoxy or urethane,, use caution and
patch test on a small section or on test panel to assure it works the way you want it. Metal cleaner designed to remove resins can attack plastic tooling and surfaces.
