The process chemicals and detergents used and supplied by us are subject to careful laboratory tests and are constantly tested in our factories. Customers profit from the experience we gather from our applications in daily practice. All the chemicals we use at our three locations can be purchased unmodified for self-testing. Concentrations can be adjusted to suit individual customer requirements on request. Our range of products and services include chemicals for diverse chemical and electrochemical processes for the treatment of metal surfaces.
Our range includes different cleaners for various applications. The effectiveness of these cleaners depends on the right combination of cleaner and material.

For full traceability of the chemicals used in customers’ processes, HENKEL offers certificates for its chemicals. Before leaving the factory, we ensure that all products conform to the specifications in accordance with factory standards and keep a reference sample for three months. We also offer two Advanced and Premium variants that go far beyond the standard. In particular, where customers have their own pickling and electropolishing equipment, but not their own laboratory, we offer a full analysis service as part of bath management. Further details about our certificates are provided below.
