I need advice of how to clean plastic without produce cracks and white haze on them in plastic, exactly in:
-Polycarbonate -Polyethylene -Polystyrene -ABS
Basically the materials of optical media (CD, DVD, Bluray), their cases and videogame console plastics
I thought that Isopropyl alcohol mixed with distilled water could make the work, but i read that in labs, the polycarbonate parts of computers are clean with Ethanol due to can be damaged in some way on the long run (Source: https://labproinc.com/blogs/chemical...ics-in-the-lab)
But the compatibility charts of the materials reports that Ethanol alcohol is just "good" and Isopropyl alcohol is "excelent"
Some studies of optical media even recommend the isopropyl alcohol to clean it (Source: https://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/pub121/sec6/)
But, in other hand, the optical media manufacturers, recommend put in discs only water
Right now, i am a little confuse, what do you recommend to use to clean plastics without damages like paint strip, cracks or white haze?
In case that alcohol do the work, ethanol and isopropyl dry fast? When it dry it becomes the plastic flammable?
Thanks in advance
