Project Number 1



Summary: The current aqueous system was improved by switching to a different chemistry. Five chemistries were tested: Calgon Geo-Guard 2215 & AK 6215, WR Grace Daraclean 211, Matchless MC 580 and Novamax Spectrum BCR.

Test Objective: To find a cleaner that may replace current aqueous cleaner.

Problems with Current Method: Water spots and sometimes a film is left on the product. Compound does not always get removed.

Purpose of Cleaning: To prepare product for final step

Cleaning Chemicals: Texo Corp Texolite 1734 SL
