Cramolin® has stood for quality in the field of electronics over the past 75 years. Our sprays are covering a wide range of application, e.g. R&D, manufacturing, as well as MRO and assembling. Much has changed in the field of electronics since the foundation of Cramolin in the 1940s; for us a continuous improvement of our brands is therefore also indispensable.

The invention of the first two Cramolin® Products in the 1940s was initiated by Richard Schaefer’s experiences as radio operator during the war. Cramolin® “Spezial” (nowadays 102 Cleaner) and Cramolin® “FL” (nowadays 101 Contaclean) were developed as corrosion and contact protection substances.
