Liquid correcting on an emulsion basis
The correction fluid is a tool used in the office, which allows you to correct errors and blots. Such means are classified by the coating method and the substances contained in the composition. When applied, the corrector is characterized by a matte white shade and a flat surface. The distribution of liquid is possible with a brush or other device. An educated thin layer conceals the shortcomings of a handwritten or printed document, while drying it on it can be written with a conventional pen.
This tool is often called putty and was previously the main possibility of making changes. This was due to the fact that the correction of the finished documentation was not possible before the advent of computers. The first corrective liquid was created in the middle of the last century, but this idea did not come from nowhere, as before there were ways of making changes, although not always effective. Today, both dry and liquid formulations are common. In order to choose the best option, you need to understand their characteristics.
What to choose
A dry remedy is less popular, so it's not always possible to find it in office supplies. Also not many at least used it. This led to a later creation, compared to the liquid version, because of which the product does not yet have its own group of buyers. In addition, it is affected by greater consumption, higher price and the need for extra care when used. The possibility of correcting errors is ensured by a special tape, and it requires accurate work because of the probability of its breaking. The agent immediately adheres to the surface on which the blot is located. The main advantage is the significant time savings provided by the dry surface of the corrector, which can be immediately changed. In addition, the surface formed is much smoother, compared with the liquid composition.
Means on a liquid basis are more habitual and easier in use, their cost is less, and productivity at times does not concede to a dry variant. They are realized in vials with a built-in brush, which allows to apply the composition to the surface. Addition of text is possible only after complete drying.
The correction liquid is divided into several types:
- Compositions created on an alcohol basis, require use far from the fire, but they are not subject to temperature changes. This is ensured by the maintenance of alcohol. In comparison with water, they have a shorter drying time, but a specific sharp odor is a characteristic feature.
- A very common composition is a water-based putty. It does not have any smell and dries up in a relatively short time. This option can conditionally be called environmentally friendly and safe for health. Among the shortcomings is worth noting the possibility of destroying the already dried surface when finding documents in conditions of low temperature conditions.
- Emulsion means are the best option, without the drawbacks inherent in other compositions, but at the same time all the merits voiced above are present. As an example, liquid corrects Retype. But it is worth noting the high cost, which sometimes contributes to the selection of other means.
The variety of compounds provides an easy selection of the necessary method for corrections. A pen-corrector or special pencil is suitable for working with small surfaces, and they can be safely carried in a bag with other objects without worrying about that they can spill. Corrector on a tape basis is optimal for a large amount of work, and standard corrective putties are classified as universal.
It should be noted that the alcohol base contributes to the drying of the product, if it is not used for a long time. To restore the former characteristics, a special diluent is created.
The corrective liquid, Koh I Noor water-based bar 20 ml with a brush, is a quality product that has a white color without yellowness and is suitable for work on any surfaces. A thin brush ensures the application of a neat layer, characterized by a high level of hiding power. There are no components in the material that can harm human health.
The Retype agent is a correction fluid, the composition of which provides frost-resistant characteristics, rapid drying and the absence of a solvent. The material is evenly applied to the surface, and its effective mixing simplifies the ball inside the bottle.
Cleaning cloth with a solvent
Normal washing in a typewriter is powerless in removing stains from the stroke on any basis, so if contamination is present, it can not do without pre-treatment.
The corrective liquid is cleared from the tissue with a solvent specially designed to remove such spots. It can be found in a stationery store. Given the constant possibility of getting the composition on clothes, even under the condition of maximum accuracy, it is desirable to buy it together with a proof-reader.
In the absence of a solvent or the impossibility of acquiring it, you can use soap. It will remove stains from putty on a water basis. With soap, the moistened surface of the stain is treated, and at least half an hour must pass before washing begins.
Special cleaning methods
Correction fluid on the emulsion base is removed by means providing the removal of greasy soiling. It is possible to use kerosene, acetone, refined gasoline, degreasing agent. When cleaning with stain remover, it is applied to the place of the drooping composition, the exposure time is selected in accordance with the instructions. Further, the usual washing is used. Solvents are applied to the fabric for a maximum of 15-20 minutes.
Any alcohol compounds are suitable for removing putty based on alcohol. It can be cologne, vodka, medical alcohol. The contaminated area is treated with the selected agent, wiped with a cloth and washed in a standard way.
Also, it is not uncommon for a situation when the Retype - correction fluid is spilled and requires removal. Why throw away a stained item, if you can easily remove the stain? In this case, the procedure described above is used.
When a stroke with a solvent predominates on the clothing, it can be removed in the same way as the emulsion liquid. It should be remembered that silk and velvet fabric do not tolerate the effects of solvents. The material in this case begins to burn out and break down. Any formulations should preferably be applied to low-visibility areas.
