Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To generate a list of products that could be used to remove adhesive from mixing tanks

Date Run:

07/17/2003

Experiment Procedure:

Using the laboratory's database, two lists of products were generated. The first list consists of products that have been evaluated at SSL under conditions similar to current cleaning process. The second list contains products that meet the requirements according to vendor supplied information, but may not have been verified experimentally by the lab.

Trial Results:

RESPONSE: The Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) has made the results of the tests conducted at the Institute’s Surface Solutions Laboratory into a searchable database format. This should make alternative cleaner selection faster and easier. Here are the results of your query, based on the information supplied.

The first table includes the products evaluated at SSL.
