It is critical to ensure good cleaning and pretreatment of metals and power washing and solvent wiping
of plastic parts.
They reduce the risk of contamination even when used on rough surfaces and can be used for pre-cleaning, degreasing, solvent wiping
and excess sealant removal.
A lower-cost Alternative to reusable rags, these wipes can be used for overall general cleaning, post-paint stripping and wiping, water-rinse drying, solvent wiping
, excess sealant removal, oil and grease cleaning, and tool wiping.
Wipers available in the W4 system include Tork Premium 530, a durable wiper ideal for solvent wiping
The simple conclusions are that solvent wiping
only or use of grit blasting without a primer do not provide any real environmental resistance, while Metal Jacket provides environmental resistance at a level beyond the power of this test length to really impact.
of the TPO substrates with isopropyl alcohol followed by xylenes prior to coating with CPO increased the mean roughness of the TPO surface by more than 100 nm; but it had a much larger effect on the roughness of the (several micrometers) CPO-TPO interface after coating.
A significant challenge was the development of a mold release that allowed good paint adhesion without the need for scuff sanding or solvent wiping
. Only GM's standard power wash is used.
In the simplest cases, solvent wiping
and abrasive blasting are both used as pre-treatments in their own right.
uses a terpene, petroleum, or chlorinated solvent applied to an absorbent material.
One signal that contamination underneath may contribute to cratering is that one auto plant was able to reduce craters by solvent wiping
the e-coated bodies before the three-wet process began.
(isopropanol, IPA/water or naphtha) of the sanded or wiped surface before the coating is applied usually prevents this type of telegraphing.
Surface treatments for elastomers range from solvent wiping
, to mechanical abrasion, to chemical modification.
