When used as a cleaner, T559 (TF) must be used in a well ventilated room or with appropriate Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV). It is advised that appropriate face masks be utilised if ventilation is not sufficient.
Cleaner solvent should be applied to a rag and then wiped over the substrate surface to remove grease, dust, loose particles and other potential contaminants.
After cleaning, all substrate surfaces should be dry before application of adhesive.
Alpha T559 (TF) can be used as a thinning solvent in those adhesives that specify T559 (TF) as a suitable cleaner.
Users wishing to use any of the Alpha Cleaners and Thinners range should conduct tests prior to full application to ensure the correct ratio of adhesive to solvent.
Always be aware that thinning will reduce the viscosity and total solids content of the adhesive, which may affect open time and coverage.
