Add to detergent solutions to boost their effectiveness in removing substances that are difficult or impossible to remove with detergent solutions alone. See "Typical Applications" below for substances removed.
Add to solutions of alkaline detergents such as Metalterj #222 or Metalterj #286; it is harmless to all metals. Use at any temperature up to the boiling point of the mixture; effectiveness increases as temperature rises.
Normally from 1% to 20% of the volume of the cleaning solution.
The most cost-effective concentration of Cardisolv #4850 depends on the quantity and the properties of the substance to be removed, on other components of the cleaning solution, on porosity of the surface, temperature, soak time, and the degree of agitation applied by the cleaning method. Initial trial is recommended using Cardisolv #4850 at 10% of the volume of the detergent solution; increase or decrease to find the most cost-effective concentration.
Some of these substances may require Pre-Solv solvents to liquefy or soften the substance before washing; some may require a washing temperature over 180°F. A substance may be listed under more than one name.
