Trial Number 314

(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run: 02/05/04

Experiment Procedure:
04-AL- RS-15-4
One product was heated to 130 F on a hot plate and two products were used at full strength. Twenty four preweighed coupons were coated with Ashland Arcglic Resin Aroset 1872 Z40 (108-88-3, 141-78-6, 142-82-5, 67-63-0) 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.
