Vapor degreasing solvents remove grease, oil, dust, rust, grime and other contaminants from plastic and metal electrical parts. When heated to a boiling temperature, the solution creates a vapor. Parts are submerged in the solution, then pulled through the vapor to dislodge any contaminants. This cleaning process eliminates the need for water or scrubbing and results in a clean, dry part.
FluoSolv® AP from NuGenTec is a vapor degreasing fluid and defluxing solvent that effectively cleans and degreases metal and plastic parts without the use of highly toxic chemicals. The solution boils at temperatures as low as 110°F, making it easier and safer to handle parts immediately after cleaning.
Our vapor degreasing solvent leaves no residue behind and will not cause staining, spotting or rusting. It is also non-flammable and free of carcinogens. FluoSolv AP vapor degreasing solvent is a safer alternative to harsher chemical products and is Boeing BAC5408 approved for military and aerospace vapor degreasing applications.
BAC5408 Approved Vapor Degreasing Solvent
FluoSolv® AP is a proprietary blend of non- flammable hydrofluoroethers (HFEs) and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (trans-DCE) that is a drop-in replacement for degreasing & defluxing solvents such as Chemours Vertrel® SDG, Vertrel® SMT & Vertel® SFR.
In addition, FluoSolv® AP is a safer vapor degreasing solvent option for blends of n-propyl bromide (nPB) which are toxic and discontinued widely. It can also be used as a substitute for other cleaners such as Asahi AK-225 (a blend of HCFC-225 ca/cb) & HCFC-141b, both of which are ozone-depleting substances banned from production.
FluoSolv® AP solvent blending technology leverages the chemical solvency of the fluid as well as its physical properties such as high density, low surface tension, and low viscosity for optimal performance. Its higher vapor-pressure allows for fast, residue-free drying.
