Trial Report

Trial Number 14

(Client Number 318, Project Number 1)

Trial Purpose: To conduct additional rust removal testing on supplied products

Date Run: 09/05/12

Experiment Procedure:
Steel coupons were selected based on the level of oxidation on the surface. The supplied products were used at supplied concentration. A 100 ml sample was poured in a glass beaker. One coupon was placed in each beaker at room temperature and allowed to soak for one hour. At the end of the hour, coupons were removed from the solution and visual observations were made on the level of rust removal.

Trial Results
All three products removed a lot of rust from the surface in the hour of soaking. The T110 and the T Minus Zero L were comparable in performance.
Photographs of the results will be provided.

Success Rating
A follow up test, usually based on company input.

Of the two products supplied, T Minus Zero L was the most comparable to the T110 product.
