Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

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

Degassing: Degassing the solution by keeping solutions in ultrasonic crest for 2 min at 120 F.
Cleaning: Ultrasonic for 2 min. at 120 F.
Rinsing: 1/2 min. manual with water at 120 F.
Drying: 1 min with heat gun @ 500F
Contaminant: Steco Corp, Tap Magic Protap (cutting fluid)
CAS# 112-80-1(>75%) Aliphatic organic acid
112-62-9 (<15%) Aliphatic organic ester

Success Rating:

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


Heated ultrasonics did not change efficiency significantly.
