Flinn-It™ Cleaner, 470-mL
Product Description

Excellent for cleaning charred carbon residue from crucibles and evaporating dishes. Flinn-It™ is placed on the soiled ware and the ware is allowed to soak in the cleaner. If this cleaner does not remove the stubborn deposit, it is not likely to be removable.

 HAZARD ALERT: Contains a very strong base. Wear gloves, chemical splash goggles, and other protective gear that is normally used in handling a very strong base.
Storage: Inorganic #4
Disposal: #10
Shelf Life: Good if stored safely.
Soluble: Water
Color: Buff
Odor: Soaplike
Technical Note: Avoid prolonged contact with glassware. The solution will etch glassware after prolonged exposure. This cleaning liquid is specifically designed for carbonaceous residue. There are some residues that resist all cleaners. If this cleaner does not remove the residue, it cannot be removed.
Storage Note: If cleaner liquefies upon storage (especially under hot and humid conditions) place the container in a refrigerator for a few hours. The material will return to its "toothpaste-like" consistency.
