Trichloroethylene (Trike) replacement solvents

Trichloroethylene needed authorisation for use from Sunset date 21st April 2016.

If you are using trichloroethylene or  n-propyl bromide  vapour degreasing  solvents EnviroTech can offer excellent replacement products developed from 40 years of supplying market leading cleaning solvents to the engineering industries. 

Economical drop in vapour degreasing solvents replacements for trichloroethylene:  

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

ProSolv® vapour degreasing solvent is a proprietary tertiary azeotropic formulation developed as a direct “drop In” 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® 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® 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 and other formulations.  Read more.

The EnSolv CC-A® formulation responds to the need for high performance vapour degreasing  solvents for cleaning in general engineering, aerospace, medical optical and electrical industries.

EnSolv CC-A® contains a proprietary blend of inhibitors and stabilisers for the solvents to prevent water staining and corrosion of yellow metals such as copper, brass and bronze which can be a problem with some other solvents.

EnSolv CC-A® removes cutting oils, lubricants, lapping compounds grinding pastes and water based cutting oils or fluids. This complex synergistic blend utilises environmentally compliant solvents combined with selected surfactants to remove oils and lubricants to the highest standards for critical cleaning applications and releases and suspends inorganic solids and soils such as fingerprints, polishing compounds and grinding paste from finely finished and highly polished surfaces such as stainless steel and plated parts, optical lenses and components for medical appliances.

EnSolv CC-A® is non-flammable, stable and specifically formulated for use in any vapour degreasing equipment with the added advantage of lower solvent usage, greater stability and reduced costs. The formulation is compliant with all current environmental and user safety legislation.  Read more.
