Trial Report



Trial Number 281

(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run: 10/17/03

Experiment Procedure:
03-AL-Co-15-8-282 Four products were used at full strength at room temperature and another four were heated to 130 F on a hot plate. Twenty four preweighed coupons were coated with Ferrocote 581 LVO 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.

Trial Results
