Critical Cleaning Solvent

Are you still using Trichloroethylene for Vapour Degreasing?

High performance cleaning at a lower cost than other fluorinated solvent cleaners

Trichloroethylene will not be obtainable for metal cleaning or other uses without authorisation after April 2016.

ProSolv® enables high performance cleaning at a lower cost than other fluorinated solvent cleaners. A proprietary tertiary azeotropic formulation based on a fluorinated solvent which provides a direct replacement for trichloroethylene and other chlorinated solvents.

ProSolv® is extremely stable and simple to use meeting all the increasingly stringent legislative demands for safer, non flammable solvents with a low environmental impact in the precision engineering industries.

ProSolv® can be used in most existing vapour degreasing equipment and can be used safely for immersion cleaning using ultrasonics, where it has been optimised with a high specific gravity and very low surface tension.

Unlike other chlorinated solvents ProSolv® can be used for manual cleaning in a suitably ventilated area. Typical applications are where high performance critical cleaning is required at lower cost than other fluorinated solvent cleaners. Vapour degreasing for medical, aerospace, optics, oxygen equipment service, high vacuum components and electronics.

ProSolv® is an excellent choice to replace flammable solvents such as MEK, Acetone, Iso propyl alcohol (IPA) or hydrocarbons where manual wiping or brush cleaning is the preferred cleaning method.

ProSolv® is a stable azeotrope which can be recycled by distillation for reuse through many cycles. It is a very stable mixture  with no need for monitoring or the need for additives or stabilisers.

ProSolv® offers a cost effective replacement in formulations for dip, spray or aerosol applications and as a fast drying carrier solvent for oil, silicones and other lubricants.
