Trial Report



Trial Number 2

(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run: 07/08/99

Experiment Procedure:
Four products were diluted to 5% and heated to 130 F. Stainless steel coupons were coated with Black dye ink.

Trial Results
Although water was not tested, it could have been included and done well.  The dye was not truly adhering to the surface until it had dried there. 
The dye was removed within the first minutes (1-2) of the immersion, in most cases.


Success Rating
Lab evaluation based on vendor data.

Conclusion
Three of the four removed over 80% of the ink.
