Trial Number 277

Trial Purpose:

Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run:

10/06/2003

Experiment Procedure:

03-55-AD-15-8-278 Five products were used at full strength at room temperature and three were heated to 130 F on a hot plate. Twenty four preweighed coupons were coated with Re: Source Technologies Grid Set Green Blue 2000 (7732-18-4; 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 for a half an hour and then reweighed a final time. Efficiencies were calculated.

Success Rating:

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

Conclusion:

No products were effective at removing the adhesive.
