|METHOD OF ACTION
TRAMOS AC penetrates the dirt, breaking surface tension, easily
dissolving organic substances and disintegrating many chemical compounds.
The use of carbon chains in this
system makes this cleaning agent biodegradable. The chemical reactions that take place
when using TRAMOS AC completely disintegrate these linear carbon chains.
Both cationic and non-ionic reducing
agents are used, allowing TRAMOS AC to work very efficiently at low temperatures. The
concentrate's high pH (12.8) is partly caused by the cationic ingredients. This pH allows TRAMOS AC to
clean solid washable surfaces without marring the substrate.
The non-ionic ingredient increases the
product's penetration into the dirt. It also decreases the static attraction of the dirt
to the substrate by encasing the dirt particles, preventing them from attaching to the
TRAMOS AC decomposes oil-based products. It separates the oily
substance into its water soluble and organic components, making easy removal from the
TRAMOS AC contains no phosphates. The cationic and non-ionic
ingredients work well in hard water since they are not sensitive to Calcium or Magnesium
NOTES FOR USING TRAMOS AC
When applying TRAMOS AC with
a spray applicator, start working from the bottom to the top to avoid getting stripes on
the fuselage or other large surfaces.
Work on limited areas so that product does
not dry before rinsing.
Whatever system is used for cleaning
with TRAMOS AC, a mechanical action (brush, sponge, aeration of solution, ultrasonic, etc.) is
required to break the surface tension of the dirt. Just soaking for an extended time will not
be sufficient for cleaning.
After several cleanings, TRAMOS AC will
form an anti-static layer on the aircraft or other equipment. This layer helps
prevent dirt from sticking to the surface, thereby making it easier to remove. Dilution
can then be reduced up to 1:10.
Warming TRAMOS AC
accelerates the cleaning process.
Circulation of the solution in a parts
washer will enhance cleaning.
Ultrasonic baths may accelerate cleaning
time, but are not required.
Contaminants may be precipitated or
filtered out of TRAMOS AC product solution to facilitate disposal. The remaining TRAMOS AC may
be reused provided pH continues to meet specifications.
