Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Basic cleaning performance testing was conducted using ASTM G122 as the bases for cleaning. 

Cleaning: 5 min. immersion at 120 F with stir-bar agitation.
Rinsing: 1/2 min. manual with water at 120 F.
Drying: 1 min. with heat gun at 500 F.

1. Adhesive/Resin: Gelva multipolymer resin solution.
Cas # : 50862-46-9

2. Paint - Nybco Designer Colors Satin finish 4660 Country Blue, Contains Toluene, Xylene, Acetone

Trial Results:

1.On cleaning resin with Solsafe 245 it was observed that surface was cleaned at some places and bubble sort of encapsulation was observed at other places, where cleaner might be trapped, thus increasing the final weight.

Success Rating:

Preliminary compatibility tests on substrate coupons encouraging for at least one cleaning chemistry. More in-depth laboratory testing necessary.
