Product Description

Detergent 8: 55 gallon drum

Detergent 8 is a non-ionic, detergent for lab-ware washers, PC board washers, power-spray systems, ultrasonic and manual cleaning. Removes oils, resins rosins, and fluxes from PC circuit boards, electronic parts, phosphate sensitive lab-ware and nuclear contaminated equipment with no interfering conductive residues. Excellent replacement for solvent cleaning. Dilute 3:100. pH 11

Alconox products require 2-5 day handling time.

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, 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,
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

Chemical Description:
Detergent 8 is a non-ionic, phosphate-free homogeneous blend of an alkanolamine, glycol
ethers and an alkoxylated fatty alcohol. Contains no chelating agents, halides or conductive
metal cations such as sodium.

Cleaning Validation Methods:
Test a parameter of rinse water before and after rinsing the cleaned surface, or test the clean
surface. No significant change in the parameter indicates no detectable residue. Parameters
measured include: pH, spectrographic methods, surface tension, and surface analysis. For
details, see the Pharmaceutical Validation References at

Pharmaceutical cleaning validation for residue identification and detection methods for Detergent8:
