ProSolv 5408e

PFAS-Free, high performance vapour degreasing solvent

PFAS-Free (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) vapour degreasing solvent, high quality precision cleaning with zero ODP and low Global GWP.

An azeotropic-like solvent blend to penetrate micron sized holes and close contact surfaces, assuring the effective removal of organic residues and synthetic oils.

Recommended for use with complex mechanical and electronic components, including blind holes and channels, close mounted electronics, and removing grinding and buffing soils on metal surfaces.

A direct replacement for n 1-Bromopropane (n-propyl bromide or nPB), Perchloroethylene, Trichloroethylene and other degreasing solvents used in precision metal cleaning.

Compatible with most solvent cleaning systems: One-tank or multi-tank immersion and vapour degreasing tank systems, using ultrasonics or flush cleaning.
