30 Cleaning methods The following cleaning methods are suggested for common surfacess Aluminium Vapor Degrease – Percholorethylene condensing vapors for 5-10 minutes.* Alkaline Degrease – Oakite 164 solution (9-11 oz./gallon water) at 190F+/- 10F (88C +/- 5C) for minutes. Rinse immediately in large quantities of cold running water. Acid etch – Place pannels in the following solution for 10 minutes at 150F+/- 5F (66C +/- 2C).* Sodium Dichromate oz./gallon Sulfuric Acid, oz./gallon 2024-T3 aluminum (dissolved) 0.2 oz./gallon minimum Tap water Balance of volume Rinse – Rinse panels in clear running tap water. Dry – Air dry 15 minutes; force dry 10 minutes at 150F +/- 10F (66C +/- 5C) If primer is to be used, it should be applied within 4 hours after surface preparation

31 Cleaning methods Steel Plastics Rubbers
Wipe free of dust with oil-free solvent such as Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)* Sandblast or abrade using clean fine grit abrasives Wipe again with solvents to remove loose particles Plastics Solvent wipe with Isopropyl Alcohol * Abrade using clean fine grit abrasives Solvent wipe again with Isopropyl Alcohol * Rubbers Solvent wipe with Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)* Abrade using clean fine grit abrasives Wipe again with MEK *

32 Cleaning methods Glass
Solvent wipe with Acetone or Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)* For glass applications which will be subjected to high moisture/humidity conditions, a primer should be used to prime the glass * Note: When using solvents or chemicals, be shure to extinguish all ignition sources and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use when handling such materials
