Trial Report



Trial Number 448

(Client Number 153, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: Removing grinding fluid, rust preventative and cutting fluid from aluminum

Date Run: 06/03/08

Experiment Procedure:
Products were selected based on the compatibility of substrate and removal of foreign substance. Full strength concentrations were used at room temperature. The coupons were immersed in a product for 30 seconds.

Sets of coupons were coated with three contaminants: grinding fluid, rust preventative and cutting oil. Using a handheld swab and allowed to dry for 144 hours at room temperature. The contaminated coupons were weighed again to determine the amount of soil added. After cleaning process the final weights were recorded, efficiencies were calculated and recorded.
