Compatible vs. Not Compatible

Compatible - Soaking the wiper in the chemical prior to use will not diminish the efficacy of the chemical. The wiper is chosen based on suitability for use with the specific type of chemistry.

Not Compatible - Soaking the wiper in the chemical could result in reduction of the active ingredient and diminish the efficacy of the chemical. The chemical could have an adverse effect on the structure of the wipe causing it to breakdown prematurely in use; diminishing the wiping performance.
