What is Alnochromix?


Q: I understand that Nochromix is no longer available and I am to contact Alconox Inc. for a replacement?

A: That is correct. Godax Laboratories has discontinued NOCHROMIX® cleaner. You may reach them at Godaxsales@gmail.com. Note all NOCHROMIX® packages have a 2 year from the date of manufacture shelf life.  The date of manufacture can be found printed on each packet.

Alconox Inc. bought the formula to NOCHROMIX® cleaner and is manufacturing the identical product under the name ALNOCHROMIX™ oxidizing additive to sulfuric acid for glassware cleaning.
