Trial Number 296

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. 

Seven products were heated to 130 F on a hot plate and one product was used at full strength. Twenty-four preweighed coupons were coated with Grease - CRC Industries Multipurpose Super White Grease (647-41-96-4, 7620-77-1, 1314-13-2, 57885-77-3, 13463-67-7) and allowed to dry for a half an hour 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.


Three out of eight products were effective at an efficiency rate of over 94%
