Q. Is Alconox detergent compatible with phenolic resins for cleaning purposes?
A. Alconox® Powdered Precision Cleaner has been used with no reported incidents to clean phenolic resins. In literature, it is reported that phenolic resins have excellent solvent and acid resistance, but can be labile to strong alkali. Alconox detergent is classified as a weak alkali.
During normal short contact time cleaning, we would not expect any problem using Alconox detergent to clean phenolic resins. Conceivably under repeated cleaning or extended continuous contact time you might have some concern. We would always suggest testing, to verify in your own setup, equipment, conditions and application. But again, we do not expect you to have a problem.
