Specificity Results:
Activated:  synthetic gasoline, diesel, jet-A fuel, crude oil.
Probability of Detection: 100% for all tested liquids with 92% to 100% confidence interval.
Not Activated: water

Comments:
All data points are the average of 6 samples.
Dry surface fuel layer depth estimated at .005" for gasoline, diesel and jet-A, .024" for crude oil.
Fuel layer for fuel floating on water estimated to be .005" for all tests.
Sensors can be cleaned and reset by soaking in naphtha and allowing them to dry in the air for 1 hour.
Sensors that do not reset must be replaced.
Sensor can be periodically tested with naphtha. Manufacturer recommends 6 month interval.
