Determine the relative rate of contaminant ease removal that has been aged on the surface with a cleaning solution.
This test method stimulates a uniform mechanical standard to properly utilize the solution. It does not standardized how much percentage of soil will be removed.
Four VCT tiles were cleaned and applied with coatingagain under 37 degrees Celsius for 2 days. The VCT tiles were cleaned using the Abrasion Tester. A pad was emerged into a 12.5% dilution of Meteor Floor Strip cleaner previous to cleaning of the VCT tile for at least 1 minute. On the manual wipe, a constant pressure was applied on top of the silver cart as the machine is running. The first set of cycle on each VCT tile coupon is set to 1 cycle with the pad on the apparatus for manual wipe. After 1 cycle; each tile was manually cleaned with 50 increment wipes. After each 50 increments, a visual analysis was done on the tile. Each manual wash on the tile is completed after 200 manual wash cycles.
Qualitative rating according to the following terminology:
Removal Ease Number of Oscillations Required for Complete Removal
Good >50 but <100
Fair >100 but <200
After the 200 cycles; the removability of the soil on the tiles was poor.
|Visual Analysis||VCT Tile 1||VCT Tile 2||VCT Tile 3||VCT Tile 4|
|50 cycles||73% removed||37% removed||20% removed||20% removed|
|100 cycles||81% removed||43% removed||31% removed||23% removed|
|150 cycles||87% removed||50% removed||35% removed||32% removed|
|200 cycles||90% removed||65% removed||40% removed||40% removed|
Success Rating:Test incomplete or inconclusive.
Meteor Floor Stripping 12.5% dilution does not remove soil at ease.
