BETACLEAN 3350 to clean the glass bed-plate

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · BETACLEAN 3350 to clean the glass bed-plate

I have a friend who works with glass. Now the company he works for uses a product called BETACLEAN 3350 to clean the glass before and after he's worked with it. And he swears by it.

When I showed him my 3d printer and told him of issues sometimes with warping etc, he offered this as a solution.

Anyone ever heard of it or used it?

Seems like pretty powerful stuff. Apparently it kills the microbes the human eye can't see. Which then got me thinking, "if it is that powerful, could it damage the build plate somehow?"

Here is the stuff:

The build plate is just a piece of glass. Any kitchen detergent can clean it. All you really need to do is to get any oils off the surface.

Thanks Eldrick, I've had a bit of trouble with warping so wondered if little microbes were affecting the adhesion. When the guy suggested this stuff I thought it would be worth a try.

Then he showed me the bottle and I thought twice about using it 8)
