The cleaner is also safe for use on bare, alodined and anodized aluminium, carbon steel, copper and copper alloys, magnesium, stainless steel and titanium. It is even approved for use on faying surfaces in accordance with Boeing BAC 5763 “Emulsion Cleaning and Aqueous Degreasing” process specification.
