Versatile Antiseptic & Degreasing Cleaning Solvent
Epic Solutions 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol (Isopropanol, IPA) is widely used in industry and is a versatile liquid that finds itself used in a lot of personal products including cosmetics for their degreasing and antiseptic properties. As quick-evaporating liquid, it is a perfect surface cleanser in most situations as it does not leave any residues behind. As a degreasing solvent, IPA can also clean up uncured adhesives, resins and sealants. Due to these properties, Isopropyl Alcohol is widely used for preparing surfaces prior to adhesion and assembly in DIY and manufacturing. Typical examples of where Isopropanol is used include circuit boards, electricals (computers and mobile phones), cars, manufacturing machines, medical equipment, lenses, optics and fibre optics, wires, cables, LCD panels, etc.
Core Ingredient for Scientifically Approved Disinfectant/Antibacterial Liquid
What’s more, mixing with a little bit of water will make it one of the most powerful antibacterial liquid man has ever known- 70% Isopropanol is on Environmental Protection Agency’s “List of Antimicrobial Products Effective Against Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, Human HIV-1 and Hepatitis B Virus”. You can use 70% Isopropyl Alcohol for cleaning, disinfecting and sanitising surfaces, tools and even your wounds (hence the name “Rubbing Alcohol”)!
How to use Isopropyl cleaner
- Before using the IPA cleaner (rubbing alcohol) test the material or surface to be cleaned to ensure it is a suitable product and will not damage the material.
- Clean the surface by wiping it down to remove dust
- Dampen a cloth or cotton bud with the cleaning fluid, or spray using a spray bottle
- Clean the surface taking care not to leave any pools of solution
- The surface to be cleaned can also be immersed gently then the solution is allowed to evaporate
As a solvent Isopropyl Alcohol can damaged certain finishes and/or coatings of a surface. Avoid using any rubbing alcohol on painted, shellacked, lacquered, or varnished surfaces, including treated wood.
Same for fabric, it is best to avoid using isopropyl alcohol to clean or sanitise delicate or synthetic materials like acetate, rayon, wool, and silk.
