Trial Number 7

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate compatibility of cleaning products with paper backing material

Date Run:

06/17/2008

Experiment Procedure:

The top three products from the previous follow up trial and one product selected for on site piloting were applied to a 3" x3" square of supplied paper backing used in the manufacturing process. The cleaning products were allowed to remain on the surface over night (18 hours). Afterward, the squares were observed to determine if there was any visual damage to the material and if there was any cleaning product residue.

Trial Results:

The previously selected product DS 144 and the Clorox Green Works Glass cleaner both had little to no residue remaining after sitting overnight. All four products did not cause damage to the paper backing. Observations are listed in the table.

Cleaner Observations
DS 144 Only slight film
  No visible sign of cleaner
  No damage to surface
BioGold 3 Visual film on surface
  Slippery
  No damage to surface
Soy Strong Some film remaining but less than BioGold 3
  Some visual sign of cleaner
  No damage to surface
Green Works Only slight film
  No visible sign of cleaner
  No damage to surface

Success Rating:

A cleanliness study, addressing only various analytical techniques.

Conclusion:

The amount of residue left behind could easily be eliminated during a normal cleaning process using a wiping action. The three products from the follow up testing will be evaluated on the EVA material.
