Can Nylon 6 be successfully cleaned with high alkaline cleaners?
Nylon 6 is generally labile to acids and oxidizing agents. Nylon 6 would be fine with an alkaline cleaner like Solujet. Nylon 6 is labile to strong oxidizing agents. Alcojet and Detojet contain small amounts of active chlorine oxidizing agents. At the high pH of these cleaners, the oxidizing agent is pretty stable and is not that strong an oxidizer, so do not expect rapid attack on Nylon 6, but given sufficient time and temperature, expect to eventually see some effect from Alcojet and Detojet.
