Cleaning and maintenance

In the event that cleaning is necessary, elastomer products should be cleaned with warm, soapy water that does not exceed 30 °C (85 °F), and air dried at room temperature.
Solvents such as trichloroethylene, carbon tetrachloride or hydrocarbons should not be used, nor should sharp-edged objects, wire brushes, emery cloth or sandpaper.
Elastomer/metal combinations can be cleaned using a 1:10 mixture of glycerine and alcohol.
