VALTRON DP188 is a specially formulated high-purity alkaline detergent developed for removing polishing slurries and sub-micron particles from a wide range of substrates. DP188 detergent emulsifies the soil preventing re-deposition, and has excellent rinsability characteristics. The unique blend of anionic, nonionic and amphoteric surfactants in VALTRON DP188 coupled with a solvent provides efficient and effective contamination removal.
VALTRON DP188 detergent is effective in contact and non-contact cleaning equipment for ultrasonic, megasonic, immersion and mechanical scrub applications. The detergent is supplied in a liquid concentrate for dilution with deionized water. Typical dilution rates are 1.0 – 2.0% by volume but may vary depending upon the type and quantity of contamination being removed.
VALTRON DP188 detergent is available in 5 gallon (18.9 L) pails and 55 gallon (208 L) drums

"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."
