Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To find an alternative to acetone for removing adhesive residue

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Four products were selected based on success from previous trial on the client supplied ink. These four solutions were used a full strength at 120 F. A paper wiper was soaked in each solution and dragged across the supplied stainless steel holders from one end to the other for 5 minutes. At the end of the cleaning cycle, the part was inspected visually to determine the approximate amount of adhesive residue removed. Cleaning was then ranked against the other products.

Trial Results:

Only one of the four products, Bio T Max,  removed most of the adhesive residue from the stainless steel holders.

Success Rating:

Results successful using TACT (time, agitation, concentration, and temperature, as well as rinsing and drying) and/or other cleaning chemistries examined.


The two most successful cleaners, Bio T Max and 7360 will be used in an immersion test.
