Kephos is a low foam, highly alkaline cleaner designed for heavy duty cleaning and for stripping coatings from ferrous metals. Kephos strips most paint finishes and is highly effective for removing oil deposits, burned-on carbonized grease and light rust. High detergency and superior penetrating action cuts through finishes and soils and lifts them from parts. Kephos retards scale formation while controlling water hardnessand redeposition of soil residues. Kephos is highly recommended for cleaning of engine blocks, heads and crankshafts.
Equipment: Mild steel jet spray equipment may be used.
Concentration: Kephos is normally used at a rate of 3-8 ounces per gallon of water for cleaning and stripping operations.
Temperature: Solutions of Kephos are operated between 180°F – 200°F.
Usage: Cleaning and stripping of ferrous metals. DO NOT use Kephos on aluminum or other soft metals.
