Use and Handling

DILUCO™ 315 has proven to perform the best at dilution ratios between 10:1 and 16:1 (water to concentrate). Agitation is recommended before transferring to a central system or mixing container as well as after dilution between applications. Build up on the die may be experienced during use and can be cleaned using a variety of cleaning procedures. The build up is not "varnish" like and can be scraped off using tools and water spray.

Storage of DILUCO™ 315 should be at room temperature and freezing avoided. The Material Safety
Data Sheet should be consulted before use and all safety precautions followed.
