Technical Bulletin

Used to clean: Circuit boards, electronic parts, phosphate sensitive labware, nuclear reactor cavities, delicate industrial parts and nuclear contaminated equipment during outage. FDA certified.

Used to remove: Resins, rosins, oils, dirt, grime, particulates, residues, fluxes, chemicals and solvents.

Surfaces cleaned: Corrosion inhibited formulation recommended for glass, metal, stainless steel, ceramic, plastic, and circuit boards. Can be used, with prompt rinsing, on soft metals such as copper, aluminum, silver, and gold. Aluminum can darken and mixed metal galvanic reactions can occur. Corrosion testing is advisable.

Cleaning method: Soak, brush, sponge, cloth, ultrasonic, ware washer, spray washer, pressure washer and flow through clean-in-place.

Protective gloves and eyewear are recommended. For spray machines, add detergent at the hot water wash cycle to make a 2% solution (2 1/2 oz. per gal. or 20 ml per liter). For difficult soils, raise water temperature and use more detergent. RINSE THOROUGHLY—preferably with running water. For critical cleaning, do final or all rinsing in distilled, deionized or purified water. Used on a range of glass, ceramic, plastic and metal surfaces. Corrosion testing is advisabl
