To evaluate floor strippers at higher concentration levels.
The products from the previous trials were retested at 100% dilution and 5 minutes of stripping. Full vinyl tile coupons (12"x12") were coated with the Johnson Wax Show Place floor coating using a paint brush. The coating was allowed to dry for an hour. After completely dry, additional coats were applied. A total of four coats were used.
Initially, each solution was applied to one tile and allowed to soak for 5 minutes. At the end of the soaking, the tile was stripped manually using sections of the scrubbing pad. During scrubbing, hot water was added to the tile and stripping solvent, simulating the procedure witnessed during an on-site visit to the client's facility. Observations were recorded on the effectiveness of the strippers. In addition, three lab personnel independently ranked the strippers for performance. An average of the three assessments were made.
