Issued 04.2009
Product description
The cleaner for plastics -D 195 850 A1- is a liquid universal cleaner and thinner/reducer based on aromate-free benzines with a low n-hexane content. This product contains no chlorinated hydrocarbons, and does not corrode paint when used briefly.
Technical data sheet
The cleaner for plastics -D 195 850 A1- is mostly used to degrease and clean substrates prior to application of adhesives or sealants.
Thorough cleaning of the surfaces to be bonded is essential for proper adhesion, with particular emphasis on removing dust, oil and grease.
Depending on the base material of the products listed above, the cleaner may also be used to remove impurities, protruding excess material or underseals.
In many applications, the cleaner for plastics -D 195 850 A1- can also be used as a thinner/reducer for certain adhesives, sealants and coating compounds. Note that these products are not usually diluted for application. Dilution with thinner/reducer is indicated only for certain procedures requiring a thinner consistency.
Before using, read the safety measures and recommendations in the safety data sheet.
Even for products which are not required by law to be labelled, the usual safety measures for chemical products must be observed.
The cleaner for plastics -D 195 850 A1- is applied either with a brush or a non-woven cleaning cloth, depending on the degree of soiling and the size/shape of the parts being cleaned.
To prevent the contents of the original container from being soiled, the cleaner should either be poured onto the cleaning cloth (do not hold the cloth against the container's mouth and then pour), or the required amount should be transferred to another container (tin can, etc.).
Pour out only the amount required for cleaning, then close the original container immediately.
The cleaned surfaces should be allowed to dry completely (depending on circumstances 2 - 10 minues) before the adhesive or sealant is applied.
While application of compressed air can accelerate the drying process, under unfavourable conditions oil in the pneumatic lines might destroy the results of the cleaning process.
If the substrate has an open-pore texture, at least 30 minutes should be allowed to elapse after cleaning. When cleaning residual material from sections that have been cut for removal (e.g. when installing permanently located glass panes, etc.) always observe the application instructions for the corresponding materials.
