Prior to using, wear protective chemical gloves, chemical goggles, and a face shield, and using a slightly dampened sponge, apply the pre-mixed ferroxyl test solution to the affected component. The pre-mixed ferroxyl test solution shall be comprised of 94% by weight distilled water, 3% by weight nitric acid, and 3% by weight potassium ferricyanide. DO NOT SATURATE THE SPONGE WITH THE SOLUTION SO THAT IT DOES NOT DRIP ONTO THE NEWLY COATED SURFACE.
The appearance of a blue stain within 15-seconds is evidence of iron contamination. If blue staining is present, rebuff the areas in question with an aluminum-oxide flapper wheel or resin fiber sanding disc. Retest with the ferroxyl test solution. Repeat until no blue staining is present.
When the ferroxyl test does not turn blue, indicating the component is no longer contaminated with iron, remove the test solution by rinsing it with water or a white vinegar solution while scrubbing with a fiber brush. Dry the component with a clean cloth.
