A Fast-Acting Cleaner for Contacts and Electrical Apparatus

Polywater® KC Electrical Contact & Equipment Cleaner can be used to clean circuit boards, controls, switches, substation relays, communication radios, meters, traffic control electronics, cables, etc.  It effectively cleans oxidation, dust, and light oils from electrical equipment. Type KC leaves no residue and has no flashpoint, making it an excellent choice for emergency outages and plant shut-down applications. Type KC is also safe for use on most plastics, for confidence when cleaning sensitive electronics and circuit boards. In compliance with national and local regulatory requirements, Type KC has low VOCs and contains no ozone depleting chemicals or known or suspected carcinogens. It is safer to use in confined spaces compared to chlorinated solvents.

Type KC Electrical Cable & Equipment Cleaner will not corrode or stain metal parts. It does not tarnish or corrode copper per ASTM D 130 and D 1729. Type KC is compatible with most plastics and elastomers, with much less effect on these materials than chlorinated solvents and HCFC 141b.
