FluoSolv Specialty Fluids
FluoSolv® Specialty Fluids product line is designed for precision vapor-degreasing applications that require a relatively low-boiling solvent. FluoSolv products are azeotropic blends of fluorinated solvents which make the solvents non-toxic, non-flammable as well as non-ozone depleting. Most FluoSolv solvent blends have a very low global warming potential.
Drop-in Replacement for TCE & nPB
Field testing and lab evaluations have shown that two solvent blends from the FluoSolv Vapor-Degreasing product line i.e. FluoSolv® CX and FluoSolv® Ten-X perform very well as substitutes for n-propyl bromide (nPB) & trichloroethylene (TCE). In fact both the FluoSolv® solvent blends when used in large vapor-degreasers have shown a 30% increase in production throughput rate due to the fact that the FluoSolv® CX and FluoSolv® Ten-X have a lower boiling point vs nPB & TCE and parts dry out faster.
For those requiring a Boeing approved product to BAC 5408 our FluoSolv® AP is the product of choice for your vapor degreasing needs. FluoSolv® CAS is our Zero VOC, Clean Air Solvent as certified by SCAQMD.
FluoSolv® AP, FluoSolv® CAS, FluoSolv® CX and FluoSolv® Ten-X - Safer Alternatives
Trichloroethylene is a hazardous air pollutant (HAP) and chemically unstable when exposed to continuous boiling as in a vapor-degreasing process. Similarly n-propyl bromide is also chemically unstable in addition to the fact that it has human carcinogenicity associated with it.
Advantages of FluoSolv Solvent blends over nPB & TCENuGenTec’s FluoSolv® specialty fluids are ideally balanced cleaning solvents that deliver better performance, better worker safety, and more desirable environmental properties versus nPB & TCE.:
- Non-ozone depleting
- Non-flammable and non-toxic
- High Kb value provides excellent solvency for tough-to-clean residues
- Low global warming potential (GWP)
- Low toxicity; high allowable exposure limit (AEL)
- No ceiling on instantaneous exposure
- Chemically stable. Will not acidify, hence no liquid waste which leads to costs savings
FluoSolv® Industrial Degreaser/Industrial Solvent Products
FluoSolv® Liquid Spray-and-Wipe DegreasersNuGenTec offers a full line of liquid spray-and-wipe FluoSolv products. These powerful liquid cleaners are safe and green replacements for “traditional” vapor degreaser and flux remover chemicals.
NuGenTec has a variety of options for AK-225/HCFC-225 replacement. Our safe, non-toxic flux remover and vapor degreaser formulas deliver superior cleaning power with no harsh chemicals.
Improved Solvent Cleaner TechnologyFluoSolv® is a vapor degreaser that utilizes a solvent blending technology that leverages the chemical solvency of the fluid as well as its physical properties. These properties include high density, low surface tension, and low viscosity, for optimal parts cleaning performance.
Proprietary BlendFluoSolv® vapor degreaser/solvent cleaner products are formulated with NuGenTec’s proprietary blend of hydrofluoroethers (HFE) and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (t-DCE) and designed to remove a variety of surface contaminants such as oils, greases, and particulate matter.
FluoSolv parts cleaning/vapor degreasing solvent is compatible with all metals, ceramic, and other non-conducting materials. Most elastomeric materials are compatible, except fluoroelastomers such as Viton and Kalrez. It is recommended that all materials be tested prior to use.
