Trial Number 427

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. 

Cleaning: 5 min. Immersion Soak cleaning at 130 F with stir-bar agitation.
Rinsing with Tap Water
Drying: 30s Air blow off using hose
Contaminant: Paint
Substrate: 3"x 4.5"x0.125 - Fiberglass Coupons

Success Rating:

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


The four products did not remove a lot of the paint. One product, Envirosolve, increased in weight, possibly signifying that the product was being absorbed into the paint, softening the paint. Increased agitation may help to remove the softened paint.
