(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run: 10/14/03

Experiment Procedure:
03-BR-BF-15-6-281 Two products were used at full strength at room temperature and four were heated to 130 F on a hot plate. Eighteen preweighed coupons were coated with Matchless Metal Polishing C2-230 BC and allowed to dry for a half an hour and reweighed. Three coupons were cleaned in each solution for 5 minutes using stir-bar-agitation, rinsed in a tap water bath for 15 seconds at 120 F and dried using air blow off for 30 seconds at 68 F. Coupons were allowed to dry for a half an hour and then reweighed a final time. Effeciencies were calculated.
