Trial Number 1

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate successfully screened products on supplied parts to determine removal times

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

Products that tested for positive removal of the UV cured ink from steel parts were put into small beakers to a level that would partially submerge the UV ink in the solution. Parts were allowed to soak for up to 30 minutes and then removed from the solution and wiped with a paper towel to remove the ink. If parts were not completely cleaned, they were reimmersed for more time. Observations were made and products were ranked based on visual removal amounts. 

Trial Results:

A couple of products were effective after 30 minutes of soaking. Each product tested still needed manual wipe remove the soil. 

Product Observations
SC Supersolv Worked well on soil. Down to base metal with wiping
Solvent Blend 2 (60/31/9) Very well. Easily wiped down to base metal
Bitu OX Bio NT Minimal paint removal beyond basic cleaning trial

Success Rating:

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


The top two products will be tested using ultrasonic cleaning to replace manual wipe removal of paint.
