Last month we detailed how to clean the Delta Kits Injector, and in case you forgot. Delta Kits recommends that if you are using Delta Kits windshield repair equipment to be sure that you clean your injector after every use with denatured alcohol. This month we will explain why denatured alcohol.
Denatured alcohol is safe to use for the cleaning of all plastic, aluminum, stainless steel, nickel plated, and anodized windshield repair injectors. Use only denatured alcohol to clean Delta Kits injectors.
Denatured alcohol is also safe to use to clean all your Delta Kits windshield repair equipment, including lights, bridge bases, injector seals, and of course injectors, but it is not recommended to be used on labels, logos, and other printed products.
Denatured alcohol is also a better choice than pure ethanol because it is considerably less expensive, and a better choice than rubbing alcohol, which contains about 30% water, and does not dry as quickly as denatured alcohol.
Denatured alcohol is basically ethanol with one or more additional chemicals added to it to render in unfit for human consumption. While those chemicals vary, the typical denatured alcohol that you find at your local hardware and paint stores has methyl alcohol (methanol) added.
As with any industrial cleaner or solvent, chemical resistant gloves and eyewear should always be worn when using Denatured Alcohol.
