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:

    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)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
