Project Number 1
Summary:Ten trials were conducted on the various paints used in painting golf balls. During the evaluations, one of the current cleaning chemicals was used as a bench mark. Successful products were identified that could be used to clean the manufacturing equipment, i.e. spindles. Oakite Inproclean 4000 T and Gemtek SC Actisolv were successful on each of the paints. Both products cleaned the supplied spindles very well when using ultrasonic energy. The client has tested the alternatives on-site.
