Polywater® EFW™ Alcohol Wipe
Water-Free Cleaning Wipe For
HDPE Fusion and Butt Splicing
Polywater® EFW™ Electro Fusion Wipe cleans the pipe surface of gas, electrical, telecom, water, or sewer PE conduits prior to the electro or butt fusion process. Installer should have a handy source of EFW-1 disposable wipes available to avoid reuse/contamination issues. EFW wipes can clean more area prior to shaving (scraping) the pipe. The wipe can also be used to clean off pipe shavers or any contaminant that could interfere with a good fusion process.
The Polywater® EFW™ wipe contains fast-evaporating, anhydrous alcohol.
An alternative, where VOC regulations do not allow the use of alcohol, is the Polywater® ACE™ acetone wipe. This water-free solvent wipe also offers excellent cleaning with no residue. Acetone evaporates slightly faster than alcohol.
