Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products
Basic cleaning performance testing was conducted using ASTM G122 as the bases for cleaning.
Cleaning: 5 min Immersion cleaning with stir-bar agitation @ 120 F
Rinsing: 1/2 min, manual, in 102 F water (tap)
Drying : 1 min with heatg un @ 500F
Contaminant: Steco Corp, Tap Magic Protap ( cutting Fluid )
Low Foam: The high removal rate may mean that there were contaminants on the coupon at the beginning of the trial and this cleaner removed the added and background contaminant.
Success Rating:Preliminary compatibility tests on substrate coupons encouraging for at least one cleaning chemistry. More in-depth laboratory testing necessary.
All cleaners were effective (>93%)
