Metal cleaning chemicals are used to remove organic and inorganic contaminants from metal surfaces. To avoid damage and maintain performance efficiency, they are used to remove unwanted substances such as oil, grease, particulates, corrosion oxides, and other impurities. Cleaning chemicals protect metals from corrosion caused by lubricating oil, corroding substrates, hard water, and other contaminants that accumulate on the surface. Organic materials (algae, microbes, denatured protein residues, animal fats, and hydrocarbons) as well as inorganic materials (carbonates, hydroxides, oxides, sulfides, sulfates, silicates, and phosphates) cause fouling. Metal cleaning chemicals are used in industries such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and transportation to clean equipment and heavy machinery. Depending on the nature of the metals, a variety of chemicals is used in the cleaning process. Metal cleaning chemicals are chosen based on a number of factors, including the surface condition and the impurities to be removed. Based on the application method, metal cleaning chemicals are divided into two categories: aqueous and solvent. On the other hand, they are divided into two groups based on their chemical composition: acid and alkali. Organic impurities such as oil, grease, and soil are removed from metal with alkaline chemicals, whereas inorganic substances such as scale, lime, and smut are removed with acidic chemical cleaners. Metal cleaning chemicals include inorganic mineral acids such as sulfuric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, hydrochloric acid, and hydrofluoric acid. To clean stainless steel, strong acids such as sulfuric acid, nitric acid, and hydrochloric acid are commonly used. To clean the surface of iron and steel, mild acids such as phosphoric acid and ethylene glycol monobutyl ether are used. Spray, soak, electro clean, and ultrasonic cleaning equipment are all used in the metal cleaning process.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

Disinfectants, all-purpose cleaners, surface cleaners, detergents, soaps, body washes, lotions, and other hygiene products have all seen increased consumption in the cleaning chemicals market. To stop the spread of the infection, proper personal and environmental hygiene has become essential. Apart from essential services sectors, however, consumption at the industrial level has decreased due to the shutdown of production units. Because of the nature of the disease's spread, cleaning activities have taken on a new significance. To prevent the spread of this disease, it is now necessary to clean surfaces, disinfect surfaces, and maintain personal hygiene. During this pandemic, proper and efficient cleaning of homes, institutions, and industrial complexes has become a necessity. Because of the various countries' lockdowns, manufacturing activities in the automotive, aerospace, electronics and other industries have decreased. Once manufacturing activities resume, these industries should be able to recover.]

Top Impacting Factors

Trichloroethylene and other solvents are hazardous to human health and the environment, so they are not the best option. Market players have also recognized the benefits of using safe and sustainable operating practices.

Green alternatives are becoming increasingly popular. Aqueous (water)-based technology has made it possible to clean and degrease metal parts and components in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner. Green alternatives aid in environmental protection, workplace safety, and the reduction of industrial waste and operating costs.
