Trial Number 336

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. 

The five products were used at full strength in a 250 ml beaker and heated to 96 F on a hot plate. Fifteen preweighed silver plated copper coupons were coated with the Houghton International Cindol 3401 oil (64742-46-7) using a handheld swab. Coupons were weighed a second time to determine the amount of soil added to each coupon. Three coupons were cleaned in each solution for 5 minutes using stir-bar agitation. After cleaning parts were weighed a final time and efficiencies were calculated.

Success Rating:

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


All five removed over 85%.
