ALCOHOL AND ALTERNATIVE TYPES
We clean the Banish Roller / Stamp and Banisher 2.0 with isopropyl alcohol. There are two types of I sopropyl alcohol that you can use to clean your Banisher – 70% alcohol and 99% alcohol.
Isopropyl alcohol is regarded as a volatile, flammable and universally applicable product with a wide range of uses in various industries. It can be used as follows: antiseptic, detergent (e.g. surface disinfectant, household solvent and electrical components), astringent, muscle pain reliever and more.
* Antiseptic – The role of IPA as a bactericidal agent makes it suitable for antiseptics, disinfectants and for cleaning smaller cuts.
* Detergent – Isopropyl alcohol is ideal as a detergent because its antibacterial properties make it a good or effective surface disinfectant at home and in many laboratories.
* Astringent – IPA can also have an astringent effect because it shrinks body tissue and stops bleeding from cuts or wounds.
* Liniment against sore muscles – Isopropyl alcohol acts as a liniment by relieving sore muscles and irritating the skin, improving blood circulation and relieving pain or aches in the body muscles.
70% isopropyl alcohol vs. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol – WHAT IS BETTER FOR CLEANING THE BANISHER?
A 70% isopropyl alcohol meets the most important requirements for use as a bactericide in cleanrooms and medical facilities as well as for general purposes. It produces less vapor and odor compared to 99% isopropyl alcohol because it reduces the risk of toxic fumes or burns. The 70% isopropyl alcohol is less flammable and offers a cheaper price for general wiping and large-scale disinfection. A 70% ratio (or higher) isopropyl alcohol is effective both as a general purpose cleaner and as a disinfectant.
99% isopropyl alcohol, on the other hand, acts as an ideal solvent or cleaning agent for the industry that produces water-sensitive objects. It also offers the least presence of adulterers and free of denaturants. The 99% isopropyl alcohol is used by computer technicians, medical device manufacturers, printed circuit board manufacturers as well as soldering and reworkers, because they prefer immediate evaporation when working with such sensitive devices.
Regarding cleaning your banisher 70% isopropyl alcohol works better than 99% isopropyl alcohol.
