Here is my dedicated opinion.
for 30 years I've heard conflicting advice about which type of wax and grease remover is best and the difference between solvent-based and alcohol-based cleaners.
Wax and grease removers are solvent-based liquids, which are refined from petroleum. The solvent is readily absorbed into raw plastic. Raw = un-primered
Alcohol based (distilled from grain) wax and grease removers arenít easily absorbed into the plastic because they flash to0 quickly to do really good cleaning, so I recommend solvent cleaners even on raw plastic. Wipe on and wipe off immediately
. That is key, don't let any solvent sit wet on plastic. Wipe it off with a clean cloth.
In addition a plastic adhesion promoter is worth the extra dough.
I'm not arguing, just sharing my experiences.
