Sticky Thermal-Cutting Slag a Drag?

July 1, 2013

Metalformers fighting a losing battle with hot slag and spatter sticking to support slats and workpieces during laser, plasma or flame-cutting operations have another soldier to enlist: Kleneslat-RP, from Tower Oil & Technology, Chicago, IL. The synthetic, oil free, nonflammable and nontoxic liquid promises to make removal of slag easier, reducing machine downtime and maximizing equipment efficiency. Spray or paint a light coating of the liquid on cutting-table slats and areas where buildup is a concern.

Kleneslat-RP does not contain silicones or ozone depleting chemicals; will not inhibit secondary operations such as welding, painting or galvanizing; and its ingredients are carefully selected to not cause hazardous fumes or discomfort to operators and surrounding workers.
