Introduction
FluoSolv® FR-110 is a proprietary blend of non- flammable hydrofluoroethers (HFEs) and acetone engineered for precision cleaning of electrical parts to remove light oils, particulates and fingerprints.

FluoSolv® FR-110 is a drop-in replacement for Asahi AK-225 (blend of HCFC-225 ca/cb) & HCFC-141b both of which are ozone depleting substances and have been banned from production.

FluoSolv® FR-110 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.  Our research has shown that to clean metal surfaces in the shortest amount of time the solvent must flow extremely close to the surface to “catch & release” contaminants

User Benefits
NuGenTec FluoSolv® FR-110 is ideally balanced to deliver performance, worker safety and desirable environmental properties.
  • Non-ozone depleting chemical (ODC)
  • Drop-in replacement; no equipment modifications
  • Low global warming potential (GWP)
  • Low toxicity; high allowable exposure limit (AEL);
  • Zero VOC solvent blend
Material Compatibility
FluoSolv® FR-110 is compatible with all metals, ceramic and other non-conducting materials.  Most elastomeric materials are compatible except fluoroelastomers such as Viton & Kalrez which tend to swell. It is recommended that all materials be tested prior to use.   See Table 1.
                              
  Compatible Additional Testing Required
Metals Aluminum, Copper, S/S Titanium, Brass, Tungsten None
Elastomers Neoprene, butyl rubber, viton, kalrez None
Plastics HDPE, PRFE, Nylon, PVC, Epoxy, Phenolic None

Worker Safety
FluoSolv® FR-110 has a calculated AEL (Acceptable Exposure Limit) of 865 ppm based on its individual components.  This indicates that the blend has low toxicity.  None of the ingredients in FluoSolv® FR-110 have any chronic or acute toxicity associated with them which makes it a worker friendly solvent.  

NuGenTec FluoSolv® FR-110 exhibits no closed cup or open cup flash point and is not classified as a flammable liquid per established definitions by NFPA or DOT, however being volatile, vapors may become flammable in air. Flash point data and vapor flammability limits in air are shown in Table 3 below .

Storage
FluoSolv® FR-110 is thermally & chemically a very stable solvent.  It is non-reactive,low water solubility and will not oxidize or degrade when exposed to air. It is not affected by any sunlight or other sources of UV radiation.  Common industrial practice should be implemented for storage such as away from human food source and extreme temperature conditions.  Freezing temperatures will cause the drums to compress and hot conditions will balloon the drum. The product in any case is perfectly usable.

Solvent Recycling
FluoSolv® FR-110 is a stable azeotropic blend easy to reclaim and reuse by simple distillation process.  Commercially available modular recycling units can easily be added to realize sizable savings in solvent usage.  Solvent recovery yields are typically in the range of 80 to 95%.
