- DICARB cold tank cleaner effectively and quickly removes carbon, gum, paint, oil, grease, fuel deposits and epoxy coatings.
- DICARB is non corrosive to all metals and can be used to clean carburettors, automatic transmissions, pistons, aluminium engines, blocks, heads and small parts. DICARB is used in a dip tank application and needs to have a water seal of at least 75mm depth to prevent evaporation of the solvent.
- Place DICARB into a suitable metal tank. NOT A PLASTIC OR FIBREGLASS TANK. Add water to form the water seal to at least 20% of the volume or 75mm deep.
- Your tank is now ready for use. Add the parts to be cleaned. For small parts either place them in a metal basket or open container so you will not have to rummage around the tank to find them. Larger parts need to be completely immersed. Tie a piece of wire around the part so you can pull it out without immersing your hands and arms in the DICARB.
- Any portion of the parts protruding into the upper seal layer may not be cleaned adequately. The upper seal layer may also cause discolouration and corrosion of aluminium and other soft metals.
- For steel, iron, copper and brass soak parts as long as necessary to remove stubborn deposits of carbon, tar and fuel residues. For aluminium and other soft metal parts:Ã‚ Immerse parts up to a period of one (1) hour. DO NOT allow immersion time to exceed approximately one (1) hour or discolouration and corrosion of the part may occur.
- Cleaning time will vary depending on the amount of soilage to be removed and in some cases such as diesel motors and heads, overnight soaking may be required.
- After the parts have been cleaned, rinse off with either mineral spirits or water and dry off with compressed air.
- To extend the life of the DICARB bath, clean parts of excess soil and debris and remove the sediment from the bottom of the tank by using a long handled pan to pick up the waste or drain off the tank until the sludge is removed. Top up to the desired level with a new solution of DICARB.
Agitation: Mechanical agitation will greatly assist with the cleaning but do not use an air bubbling system.
Avoid skin and eye contact and breathing of vapours. Use in a well ventilated area.
If poisoning occurs contact a doctor of poisons information centre. PH 13 11 26. If swallowed do not induce vomiting, give a glass of water and seek medical advice. For inhalation, remove patient to fresh air, lie down and rest and seek urgent medical attention. If skin contact does occur remove contaminated clothing and wash thoroughly with water. For eye contact, irrigate with water for 15 minutes and if irritation persists seek medical advice.
DICARB is available in 25 and 200 litre containers.
