Vapour Degreasing Solvents

Information in this section is retained for reference only
EnSolv® products, invented and patented by Envirotech (ETE), have been a market leader all over the world for n-bromopropane (nPB) based vapour degreasing solvents  - now moved to Annex XIV of REACH regulations by ECHA so nPB solvents cannot be used without authorisation after July 2020.

Using the experience of 40 years supplying and supporting users of the vapour degreasing process ETE specialists have developed "drop in" alternatives:

ProSolv®  and EnSolv CC-A®  give the same level of enhanced performance and economy as the original EnSolv® products.

Critical Cleaning SolventN-propyl bromide replacementEnSolv CC-A

Environmentally friendly and safe asphalt extraction solvents formulated in response to a need for a
safer solvent than Trichloroethylene

In July of 2005, stabilized n-Propyl Bromide (npb) solvents, such as EnSolv® EX, were approved by AASHTO for the extraction of bitumen from bituminous asphalts. EnSolv® EX conforms to ASTM D-2172, ASTM D 6368 and ASTM D 5404.

The patented stabilizer package blended into the azeotropic EnSolv® EX mixture ensures that the solvent can be recovered and redistilled through numerous cycles, translating to longer useful life and more efficient extractions.

EnSolv® EX conforms to ASTM D-2172, ASTM D 6368 and ASTM D 5404.
Availlable in 22kg cans and 273kg drums.
