The Aqueous Cleaning Handbook | Alconox, Inc.

Since their first use in healthcare and laboratory settings, aqueous critical cleaners—cleaners which leave no interfering residues—have found increasing application in a wide range of industries as an environmentally benign alternative to ozone-depleting compounds and hazardous solvents.

This book distills and presents practical information covering the history of such cleaners—what they are, how they work, and how to make best use of them in cleaning products and components in electronics, metalworking, precision manufacturing; pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and chemical processing; and many other industrial applications.

It is written by a medical doctor, Alan Zisman, and a vice president of aqueous-cleaner marketing, Malcolm McLaughlin, who also has academic training and professional experience in chemistry. The two teamed up while working at Alconox, Inc., a New York-based firm which has been a leading supplier of aqueous cleaners for laboratory, healthcare, and industrial applications for over 70 years.
