Trial Number 275

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. 

Five products were used at full strength, heated to 120 F on a hot plate. Fifteen preweighed coupons were coated with Oil - Benign B-5186 (64742-52-5, 9003-29-6, 3964-69-2, 63197-48-8) and allowed to dry over the weekend 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 for a half an hour and then reweighed a final time. Effeciencies were calculated.

Trial Results:

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

Success Rating:

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


AW Chesterton 278 Super Solv was the only effective cleaner at an efficiency rate of 95.81%.
