Chromium-6 Neutralizer TK20
Neutralizer - TK20
for surface contaminations on metals
This liquid (0.5 L) neutralizes and removes chromium-6 in surface contaminations on metals. The liquid can be applied onto the metal using for example a cloth or a sprayer. It is also possible to immerse small parts, such as nuts and bolts, into this liquid. After cleaning of the metal, the TK11 Test Kit can be used to test if the chromium-6 has been removed.

Chromium-6 contamination on heated steel
Chromium-6-containing compounds can be formed on heated chromium-containing steel, such as stainless steel. These metals are often part of a machine and are heated automatically when the machine is in operation. Think, for example, of parts of a ship's engine or a (wind) turbine. Chromium-6 contamination often occurs because of a reaction of lubricants with steel during heating. These compounds are toxic and must be removed before any maintenance can take place.
The formed chromium-6 compounds can often be recognized by a white/green dusty layer on the metal. This layer is often present in the places where (anti-seize) lubricants were used, such as on nuts and bolts.
By using the MATinspired TK11® Chromium-6 Detection Test Kit, you can easily test for chromium-6 contamination on steel. If a chromium-6 compound is detected, it can be neutralized with the TK20 Chromium-6 Neutralizer.

contamination. This contamination can
be recognized by its white or green colour.
The test swab of the TK11 Chromium-6
Detection Test Kit is purple, indicating that
chromium-6 is present.
After treatment with Chromium-6 Neutralizer:

The test swab of the TK11 Chromium-6 Test Kit
is orange, indicating that chromium-6 is
no longer present.
How the TK20 Chromium-6 Neutralizer works
When the TK20 Neutralizer liquid is applied to the metal, the chromium-6 present will be converted to non-toxic chromium-3. This is also known as a reduction reaction.
