Economical to Use

  • Easy & Economical to Ship - Not Regulated by DOT for transportation, solvent ships standard carrier.
  • Continued Use of Current Vapor Degreasing Equipment - Modification or replacement of your vapor degreaser not required.
  • Simplified Solvent Maintenance - Boosting and acid testing not necessary compared to the chlorinated solvents TCE and n Propyl Bromide.
  • Readily Distillable - Allowing for repeated use of solvent.
  • Reduced Reporting - Not NESHAP Regulated.
  • Non-Hazardous - Not regulated for disposal.

Ideal for Precision Vapor Degreasing Cleaning Applications


Use as an nPB replacement for the removal of greases, oils, silicone, masking waxes, masking lacquers. NDT dye penetrants, drawing lubricants, coolant residues and adhesives. Ultrasonic vapor degreasing for removal of metal fines, polishing abrasives, and blasting media.


Use as an nPB replacement (AeroTron™ is RoHS compliant) for the removal of flux and flux residues, polar and non-polar contamination, cleaning of electrical assemblies in cold wipe or vapor degreasing applications.

circuit board


Use as an nPB replacement or TCE replacement solvent when cleaning potting and masking waxes and fingerprints in cold wipe or vapor degreasing applications.

Metal Fabrication

Vapor degreasing & cleaning prior to coating, welding, brazing or adhesive bonding. Near absolute surface cleanliness for surface coating operations by plating, painting, & vapor deposition. Use as a TCE replacement or nPB replacement for surface preparation to remove contaminate impediments to robotic welding, vacuum brazing, or adhesive bonding of metal parts.
