Prosolv – A high performance vapour degreasing solvent and simple “drop-in” replacement for n-Propyl bromide and trichloroethylene
Vapour degreasing is one of the most widely used cleaning systems in the engineering industry. The most commonly used solvents are based on Trichloroethylene, n-Propyl bromide and other chlorinated solvents which under EU REACH regulations may require authorisation for use as metal cleaners after July 2020. If you are using vapour degreasing solvents based on any of these solvents EnviroTech Europe can offer excellent drop-in replacement products developed from 40 years of experience supplying market leading cleaning solvents to the engineering industries.
ProSolv® is an alternative chemistry developed by EnviroTech Europe to replace chlorinated solvents. It can be used in most existing vapour degreasing equipment and can be used safely for immersion cleaning using ultrasonics, for which it has been optimised. with a high specific gravity and very low surface tension.
ProSolv® is an extremely stable and simple to use vapour degreasing solvent. A tertiary azeotrope which blends the properties of solvents in the formulation to meet all the increasingly stringent demands of legislators for safer, non- flammable solvents with a low environmental impact while delivering high performance vapour degreasing in the precision engineering industries.
Unlike some other chlorinated and halogenated blends such as trichloroethylene, ProSolv® is an excellent choice to replace flammable solvents such as MEK, Acetone, Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or hydrocarbons where manual wiping or brush cleaning is the preferred method. It is a non-flammable azeotropic blend which can be used for manual cleaning in suitably ventilated areas and 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.
In other applications ProSolv® offers a cost-effective alternative for halogenated solvents in formulations for dip, spray or aerosol applications and as a fast-drying carrier solvent for oil, silicones and other lubricants. Simple to install in any standard machine for vapour and vapour liquid degreasing.
ProSolv® is non-flammable (No Flash Point) with high solvency (KB Value 91) with a very low surface tension and low boiling point making it highly productive and economical in use. A very stable azeotrope in use no additives or testing required. Leaves minimal non-volatile residue.
Importantly the ProSolv® formulation is kind to the environment as it contains no hazardous air pollutants and is safe for users. It has zero ozone depletion (ODP) with very low global warming potential (GWP). ProSolv® is compatible with all metals.
