Form:

This specification covers liquid wipe solvent cleaners.

Application:

These wipe solvents have been typically used for cleaning aircraft primary and secondary structural surfaces prior to application of adhesion promoters, sealing materials, primer materials, and topcoat materials over primed surfaces. However, usage is not limited to such applications.

Classification:

Solvents covered by this specification are classified as follows (see 8.4):

Type 1 - Cleaning prior to primer or topcoat materials.

Type 2 - Cleaning prior to sealing compounds.

Form 1 - Hydrocarbon-based. Wipe solvents composed of a mixture of photochemically reactive hydrocarbons and/or oxygenated hydrocarbons and/or exempt solvents.

Form 2 - Aqueous. Wipe solvents in which water content is 80% or more by volume of the wipe solvent solution as applied.

Class 1 - Most environmentally preferable (low vapor pressure and/or low HAP/VOC). Containing de minimis HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutants) and VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) defined as concentrations less than 0.1 percent by weight for carcinogens and 1.0 percent for non-carcinogens, or as defined by the following: for Form 1 - maximum vapor pressure of 7 mm Hg at 68 °F (20 °C) and no HAPs; for Form 2 - flash point greater than 200 °F (93 °C) and the solution must be miscible with water. Class 1 is exempt from housekeeping measures as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency (see 8.4).

Class 2 - Moderately environmentally preferable (moderate vapor pressure). Maximum vapor pressure of 45mm Hg at 68 °F (20 °C).

Class 3 - Least environmentally preferable (HAPs and/or high vapor pressure). Vapor pressure greater than 45mm Hg at 68 °F (20 °C).

Safety:

Hazardous Materials: While the materials, methods, applications and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to insure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
