    Default Electrolytic weld cleaner, use on aluminium?

    I've only ever used these machines on stainless, and that is how they are marketed.

    Some of them mention in passing about other metals, but solid info on that is very thin on the ground.

    Any of you guys using an electrolytic/electrochemical weld cleaner successfully on tigged aluminium?

    Never tried it my self. All I know is DO NOT use the phosphoric acid that comes with most common units like surfox or tigbrush.
    The phosphoric acid attacks aluminium pretty badly.
