and solvents.
Surfaces cleaned: Corrosion inhibited formulation recommended for glass, metal, stainless
steel, porcelain, ceramic, plastic, fiberglass, circuit boards. Can be used, with prompt rinsing,
on soft metals such as copper, aluminum, zinc, silver, gold and magnesium. Corrosion
testing is advisable.
Cleaning method: Soak, brush, sponge, cloth, ultrasonic, ware washer, spray washer, pressure
washer and flow through clean-in-place.
Directions: For manual, soak and ultrasonic use, make a 3-5% solution (4-6 oz. per gal. or
30-50 ml per liter) in warm or hot water. An oily, milky solution is normal. 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,
