ROR Residual Oil Remover - 1oz. Dropper Style Bottle

1. About ROR

ROR stands for “Residual Oil Remover.” ROR is not an optical surface cleaner in the usual sense. It takes a big step beyond routine cleaning. ROR is specifically designed to emulsify and remove microscopic oil residues - a by product of environmental pollution - from the surface and pores of glass and acrylic.

When you clean an optical surface with ROR you will observe a measurable difference in brightness and clarity. For the first time, you will experience pollution free, unimpeded vision. Because ROR removes microscopic oil residues, dust has nothing to adhere to allowing the surface to remain cleaner longer.

ROR is safe and versatile for all delicate surfaces. It has been tested and used on everything from multicoated lenses to beryllium surfaced contacts and has proven time and again to be the finest and safest optical cleaning treatment on the market today.

Invented 25 years ago with professional and amateur photographers in mind, ROR is used today by the military, NASA, astronomers, scientists, hospitals, laboratories and universities.

Protect your investment through regular ROR cleaning and maintenance and your equipment will endure and perform excellently for years to come. See better. See clearly. See the difference.

Professional photographers were among the first audience to embrace ROR. Now that the general population is equipped with cell phones with multi-touch tablets and cameras built into them, ROR has a whole new audience of consumers in need of its product.

Laboratories and hospitals have used ROR for decades because ROR cleans lenses, objectives and other optical surfaces better than any other solution available. Obviously, scientific and clinical laboratory testing requires hygienically clean lenses for accuracy as blurred vision can change whole diagnoses and findings. When human lives are at stake, there is no room for compromise.

Many high end optical manufacturers and eyeglass boutiques have traditionally included a sample of ROR lens cleaners with purchase. It’s a retailer’s way of reinforcing the importance of protecting an eyewear investment for the long-haul.

Top-of-the-line flat screen TVs and computer monitors do not respond well to cleaning performed with traditional glass cleaners. Eliminate streaks and fingerprints and avoid scratches that can permanently damage the flat screen. Increase your enjoyment of your cable, movie and TV viewing using ROR. Improve your productivity working on your computer using ROR to clean it weekly.

3. Instructions For Use

The most likely source of damage to glass surfaces and sensitive optical coatings is abrasion caused by rubbing the fine particles that are resting on the surface. Never “dry clean” a lens because that will guarantee scratching and abrading of the coating.

ROR recommends:

• Use a can of compressed air or a camel hair blower brush to remove any particles that may be resting on the surface.

• Place a few drops or spray a little ROR on the surface, let the solution settle for a few moments then wipe gently with a lens cleaning cloth or tissue making sure that you use as much of the clean area of cloth or tissue, each time you wipe. If you are working on a small surface, squeeze a few drops or spray some ROR onto the applicator that you are using and commence the cleaning as described above.

• Apply enough pressure to effectively clean the optical surface.

• Use a clean cloth or tissue to do a final wipe of the surface, again using sufficient pressure for each additional motion.

• Use a professional task wiper to apply and remove ROR with. These soft, chemical free, non abrasive tissues offer great absorbency and streak free cleaning on sensitive surfaces. If you have to use a generic variety of tissues, make sure it is untreated.

• Untreated micro-fiber cloths also work well as long as you wash them frequently and keep them dust free in a pouch or container. Be sure to check the make-up of your micro-fiber cloth before using with ROR. Treated micro fiber cloths can integrate poorly with ROR, leaving a residue on the surface. We recommend you wash and dry the cloth before proceeding with your application.

4. Helpful Hints

Should any streaking or residue remain after cleaning and drying it is most likely due to either a tentative application or a lengthy interval that has passed since the last cleaning. Should that prove to be the case, a second application and drying might be required to restore the surface to the desired result. We highly recommend a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that surfaces are kept residue free thereby prolonging the life of your valuable equipment.

Accuwipes get our recommendation as the best task wipers to apply and remove ROR with. These soft, chemical free, non-abrasive tissues offer great absorbency and streak free cleaning on sensitive surfaces. If you are in a pinch and have to use a supermarket variety of task wiper, make sure it is untreated.
