Trial Results
1. Cleaning Latex Binder with DS-108-Solvent big pieces of binder were removed as compared to the other cleaners and the solvent remained on the
coupons even after rinsing which led to the increase in the weight.

2. There was no removal of binder by Tarksol HTF-60. Instead there were pockets formed which retained the cleaner which led to trmendous increase in
