Cleaning and Vibratory Compounds from BCS Company, Inc.

BCS Company manufactures and stocks a large variety of Aqueous Compounds to to compliment every surface preparation function.

  • CLEANING COMPOUNDS can be used in spray washers, soak tanks, agitation tanks, flow-thru systems, ultrasonic systems and power washers.


 BCS Company vibratory compounds serve 3 functions:

  1. Remove oils, grease and other shop soils during the production process, thus avoiding a pre-cleaning operation.
  2. Keep abrasive media open and free cutting.
  3. Some remove heat treat scale, rust tarnish and other oxides.  Some are used for bleaching to restore natural color between long cut down runs and burnishing operations.


  • DEFOAMERS are designed for defoaming problems in vibratory applications, especially for foam control in problem areas like drains and sumps.
  • BURNISHING COMPOUNDS are used to produce a high color, highly reflective, brightly polished appearance on a part which has previously been deburred and smoothed.
  • ABRASIVE COMPOUNDS contain aluminum oxide grit, a very aggressive compound, and are excellent for part on part work.
  • RUST INHIBITORS are available in liquid and powdered versions and provide short term (2 days - 2 weeks) invisible rust protection without oils, greases or waxes.


ItemFunctionDescription
