Trial Number 15

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate the removal of glass soil from chome mirror and glass using Puracy cleaner.

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Three coupons of each substrate (glass, mirror and chrome) were collected and initial weights were taken. Glass soil was applied to each coupon and allowed to air dry for 24 hours. After the 24 hour dry time, the weights of the newly contaminated coupons were measured. All coupons were placed into a Straight-Line Washability (SLW) machine. A KC Wypall cleaning cloth was attached to the cleaning block used for the test. The Wypall cloth and all coupons received 2 sprays of the Puracy Cleaner and the SLW machine was run for 20 repetitions, simulating 20 manual wipes. Once cleaning concluded, the cleaned coupons were allowed to air dry for 24 hours. After 24 hours, the weights of the cleaned coupons were measured. 

Trial Results:

Puracy cleaner was effective for all three substrates. It was 97% effective for chrome and mirror and 96% effective for glass.
