  • Problem contaminants can be treated by increasing the solution strength.
  • Cleaning time can be reduced by heating the solution (40°C to 50°C) or using in an ultrasonic cleaning bath.
  • The cleaned items must be rinsed thoroughly as soon as they are removed from the cleaning solution, and dried.
  • We recommend three agitated rinses in water to ensure removal of all traces of contamination and cleaning agent.
