Trial Number 298

Trial Purpose:

Laboratory evaluations of alternative cleaning products

Date Run:

12/08/2003

Experiment Procedure:

03-AL-FL-15-4-299 Two products were heated to 130 F on a hot plate and two others were used at full strength. Twelve preweighed coupons were coated with Flux - Alpha 615 RMA Flux (67-63-0, 8052-41-3, 8050-09-7) 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.

Conclusion:

3 out of the 4 products were effective at an efficiency rate of over 90%
