Trial Number 230

Trial Purpose:

Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

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 heat gun @ 500F
Contaminant: Beeswax

Trial Results:

Using immersion cleaning for five minutes resulted in four products removing all the beeswax, one removed 99% and the last product removed 85%.

Success Rating:

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


All products evaluated were found to be effective at removing the beeswax.
