Trial Report



Trial Number 342

(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run: 05/28/04

Experiment Procedure:
04-AL-OI-VD-14-
Two hundred fifty milliliters of each product was used at full strength in a 4000 ml beaker and heated to its boiling point on a hot plate. Preweighed aluminum coupons were coated with the Rochester Midland Corp RI 780 (8052-41-3, 95-63-6) using a hand held swab. Coupons were weighed a second time to determine the amount of soil added to each coupon. Three coupons were cleaned in each solution for 5 minutes using vapor degreasing. After cooling to room temperature, the coupons were weighed a final time and efficiencies were calculated.
