Trial Number 259

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. 

Eight products were used at full strength, heated to 120 F on a hot plate. Twenty-four preweighed coupons were coated with Re:Sources Technologies Grid Set Green Glue 2000 (7732-18-5, 25212-88-8, 1310-58-3, 68649-38-7) and allowed to dry overnight and reweighed. Three coupons were cleaned in each solution for 5 minutes using stir-bar-agitation, rinsed in a tap water bath for 15 seconds at 120 F and dried using air blow off for 30 seconds at 68 F. Coupons were allowed to dry overnight and then reweighed a final time. Efficiencies were calculated.

Note: Bio T Foam Plus was sprayed onto coupons at room temperature and allowed to sit for 5 minutes. The cleaner was then wiped clean.

Trial Results:

Only two products had positive removal of the adhesive.

Success Rating:

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


Bio Chem Systems Bio T Foam and Ecolink VG 151 may work with extended cleaning times.
