Computer Disk Drive


Valtech supplies specialty chemical formulated detergents to the major worldwide computer disk drive manufacturers and their component suppliers.

The VALTRON® line of high-purity aqueous detergents are formulated for precision cleaning of all components used in the computer hard disk drive (HDD), including base plates, top covers, magnetic media, heads, suspension arms, flex cables, clamps, spacers and other critical components. The VALTRON detergents offer a unique combination of surfactant blends, solvents, builders, and dispersants in formulations that provide excellent sub-micron particle removal and emulsification of hydrocarbon films for a residue-free surface. The detergents are available in acidic, neutral pH and alkaline formulations, as well as non-foaming and low-foaming formulations depending on the cleaning equipment being used.

“The technical and R&D support that Valtech has supplied us with over the years has been instrumental in our growth and quality control. The quality and consistency of the consumables they supply us, as well as the reliability of scheduled deliveries has earned them an A+ in our vendor ratings.”

"Disk drives are unique within the electronics industry in that they must maintain and extremely clean internal environment throughout their operational life. Valtech was successful in delivering uniquely qualified surfactant systems for both metal and polymer-based drive components. The qualification phase was aided by a top tier R&D center, and the switch to full production was backed up by great customer support as well as trouble-free worldwide distribution."

“I cannot thank the team at Valtech enough for the recent support and technical expertise with our most challenging precision cleaning task to date. Not only did they spend the onsite/hands on time learning about our needs first person, but the solution they delivered was 100% on target and met our customer's requirements completely. Top notch outfit and I highly recommend them to anyone in any high-tech industry where the smallest particles matter.”
