Veri-Kleen Grout Cleaner
Product profile summary
Stratathane ST-522 Veri-Kleen Grout Cleaner dissolves cured and
solidified urethane injection resin and helps remove it from pumps,
hoses, and other wetted parts of the grouting system. Major parts
are usually cleaned by flushing and smaller parts are soaked.
cleanup of Stratathane Injection Resins and urethane grouting
compounds from pumps, hoses, and tools is accomplished with a
solvent and a cleaner used in sequence. The solvent removes liquid
resin but will not remove solidified product, which is handled
by the cleaner.
solidified resins, ST-522 Grout Cleaner is the most effective
and preferred cleaner. The Stratathane ST-522 Veri-Kleen Grout
Cleaner is not used on liquid resin because it may have absorbed
enough moisture from the air to catalyze liquid resin within the
system being cleaned.
solvents used to remove liquid resin vary depending on the material
being cleaned. ST-590 Poly-Flush is the preferred cleaning agent
because it contains no VOC=s (volatile organic compounds) and
is safer to use than a solvent. Often, Acetone or Methyl Ethyl
Ketone (MEK) will be used, but others may also be more or less
effective. Read the specific resin technical information to find
a preferred solvent.
small parts to be cleaned in a polyethylene container containing
a 100% solution of Stratathane ST-522 Veri-Kleen Grout Cleaner
and soak overnight. After soaking, remove and blow or wipe clean.
clean pumps and hoses, purge resin with solvent until clear. Then
fill the system with Stratathane ST-522 Veri-Kleen Grout Cleaner
and let stand for at least 1 hour and overnight if possible. After
soaking, recirculate cleaner rapidly for 10 to 15 minutes. After
recirculation, push out cleaner with solvent. Do not allow cleaner
to remain in the system for long periods. Dispose of used cleaner
and do not reuse.
equipment cleanup is just as important as the work itself. When
cleanup is done properly, the next job will go more smoothly without
malfunctions and downtime for wash up that should have been done
after the last job. For complete instructions on the proper pumping
equipment cleaning sequence, see the Owner=s Manual for the pump
