HUMIDITY INSENSITIVE CLEANING COMPOSITION FOR
PHOTOCONDUCTIVE INSULATING SURFACE (Cont'd)

Suitable examples of mono and dihydroxyl alcohols are 1,2-
ethanediol, 2-ethoxyethanol, 2,2 ~-oxydiethanol, carbitol,

1,2-propanediol, 1, 3-butanediol, dipropylene glycol, and bis (2-hydroxyethoxy ethane)

The wetting agent employed (3,5-dimethyl-l-hexyn-3-ol) has
a maximum water solubility of approximately 1 percent by
weight. Therefore...
