Cleaning surfaces after Alodine plating is done
We use a light, clear coating of Alodine (Mil-C-5541 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet]) on our electronic enclosures. What is the best way to clean the enclosure surfaces after plating and not harm the plating itself? Mild soap and water? Alcohol?Dave Banasek

What are you trying to clean from the surface of the parts. If it is organic in nature such as finger prints, oil, etc. I recommend that you wipe them down with IPA (or immerse). Be careful if you attempt to use "soap' as any cleaner containing sodium hydroxide specifically will attack and remove the chem film coating.
Hope this helps.Timothy D. McCray
