Ambimization® for Automotive OEMs

Improve safety, increase productivity
and protect the planet 

Automotive manufacturers are under increasing pressure to create safer and more sustainable manufacturing processes. Traditionally, manufacturers deploy heated detergents and solvent-based cleaning processes which are energy consuming and high in VOCs, require ATEX zoning, expose employees to unnecessary risk and create hazardous waste.

Terrafend is enabling manufacturers to remove hydrocarbon solvents, caustic solutions and heated chemicals from their cleaning processes. The result? Reduced workplace risk, increased productivity and a cleaner planet.

Reduce cleaning times

Improve productivity

Ambimization® fluids are extremely effective at cleaning coatings and do not behave like solvents. Reduced cleaning times (up to 50%) speed up production and harder to clean items no longer require intervention by external specialist cleaning contractors, keeping manufacturing and maintenance streamlined.

Reduce workplace risk

Protect employee health & safety

Ambimization® fluids are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and non-flammable. This drastically reduces major risks to the workplace and workforce that typical solvent-based solutions create. By switching to Ambimization®, manufacturers can eliminate ATEX zoning requirements and operational inefficiencies.

Air-driven & fluid cleaning

Cleaning spray guns

Every year, automotive manufacturers consume large volumes of solvents and produce large volumes of waste cleaning spray guns. It is critical that the spray guns are cleaned thoroughly to avoid costly contamination issues. Traditionally, these spray guns are cleaned in either water or solvent-based machines (quick rinses). This process poses occupational health and a safety risks, as the solvents used are toxic and flammable, and therefore require extraction and ATEX zoning.

Terrafend's Ambimization® process leverages the Monsoon Pro Air, an air-driven machine, to clean both water and solvent-based parts back to the bare metal in a matter of minutes. Our Ambimization® fluids are deployed in a final rinse through to ensure all contaminants and water are removed from the gun. This process ensures superior cleaning performance while reducing the risk of costly imperfections.

Parts cleaning 

Cleaning small parts requires flexibility in machines and processes, while ensuring the safety of workers. Terrafend's patented cleaning technology, Ambimization®, is used across multiple state-of-the-art machines - Typhoon, Shockwave and Trident - to deliver superior cleaning, reduced risk and material sustainability benefits.

Cavitation cleaning

Cleaning overspray grids

Grids are a critical part of the automotive painting process. They form the floor a car sits on to be painted. During this spraying process, 30 to 70% of the paint sprayed misses its intended target and falls to the ground, coating the grid or leading to waste water treatment. Over time, this overspray builds up on the surface of a grid and cause problems such as imperfections, slip hazards and machine malfunctions.

Terrafend's Ambimization® technology leverages mechanical systems, tanks and fluids designed to disrupt the different coatings that form on a grid, enabling them to be removed.
