Crystalbond Stripper for 590-S Mounting Adhesive 1lb (454g)
This stripper is an environmentally-safe, water-dispersible, powder concentrate prepared primarily for use with Crystalbond™ 590 and other mounting waxes. In addition to its ability to dissolve waxes, it can be used for the removal of silicones, greases, oils, soils, finishing compounds and normal contaminants.
- Soluble in Water
- Non-Reactive with Metals
Add 6-8 ounces of 590-S (170-225 grams) to each gallon of water and allow to dissolve completely. Heat solution to 50-70 °C and immerse parts for a minimum of 5 minutes until the Crystalbond™ 590 dissolves. Use an ultrasonic system for best results. As adhesive residue begins to concentrate in the stripper, 20% of the stripper should be replaced with fresh material. Refer to process diagram for cleaning.
After removing the adhesive, a step-wise, warm-rinsing process is recommended. Rinse in a dilute, non-ionic surfactant or liquid detergent system, followed by a final rinse in de-ionized water to eliminate water spots due to hard salts and contaminant redeposition.
The 590-S is non-reactive with ceramics, glass and metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, iron, magnesium, silicon, and zinc. It is reactive with strong acids.
Handling and Storage
The 590-S is biodegradable and inert. It is a caustic material, so the use of gloves and eye goggles is recommended. Keep container tightly closed and store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area or cabinet. Isolate from incompatibles such as strong acids.
Storage conditions: Room temperature
Also, isolate from incompatibles such as corrosives, oxidizers, or strong reducing agents.
