Cleaning Acrylic Emulsion Paintings
Dow’s high throughput cleaning device and a soiled paint film cleaned with the device. The top 11 locations were cleaned with water and the lower 11 with a formulated aqueous cleaning solution. The increased activity of the formulated cleaning liquid is clearly evident. Two locations at the ends of rows 2 and 3 were left uncleaned as reference controls.
