Industrial Cleaners

Quality industrial cleaners can be essential to maximizing productivity and achieving high performance results!

Surface cleaning is a critical process preceding any external metal treatment stage such as heat treatment or coatings.  Consistently meeting cleanliness requirements has a direct effect on the quality of final products.  By leveraging the process and applications expertise of our field personnel and support specialists we focus on product compatibility throughout the metalworking process.  Our ultimate goal is to apply the right technology in our industrial cleaners to maximize your productivity. 

Blue Star’s Star Clean series of products removes dirt, lubricants, particulates and fluids that accumulate on metal parts during the metalworking processes.  The Star Clean line also includes an industrial cleaner for general shop use and floor scrubbers.  For unique applications, Blue Star will custom-formulate solutions for your specific needs.
