Click image to enlarge
Part Number: ng-FTenX
  • Primary Application: vapor degreasing & Boeing BAC 5402
  • Boiling Point (C): 38
  • VOC: (g/L): 1,029
  • Kb: 95
  • Replacement for: n-Propyl Bromide & TCE
FluoSolv® Ten-X is a proprietary blend of non- flammable hydrocarbon (HFC) solvents and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (t-DCE) designed for cleaning a variety of surface contaminants such as oils, greases and particulate matter.  

FluoSolv® Ten-X is a drop-in replacement for defluxing blends of n-propyl bromide (nPB), TCE and similar vapor degreasing solvents.  It can also be used for cold cleaning applications such as a spray & wipe or a rinsing solvent for cleaning metal or nonmetallic surfaces.  Since it is a fast drying (high vapor pressure) solvent it will leave no residue on the surface after spraying and wiping.  Boeing Approval for BAC 5402 for Oxygen Service Cleaning.

FluoSolv® Ten-X 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.  

User Benefits
NuGenTec FluoSolv® Ten-X is ideally balanced to deliver performance, worker safety and desirable environmental properties.
  • Non-flammable & 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 go acid
  • Boeing Approval for BAC 5402 for Oxygen Service Cleaning
Material Compatibility
FluoSolv® Ten-X 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.

Worker Safety
Data from acute toxicity studies of various ingredients have demonstrated that FluoSolv® Ten-X blend has low toxicity. It has a calculated AEL (Acceptable Exposure Limit) of 335 ppm based on its individual components.  None of the ingredients in FluoSolv® Ten-X have any chronic toxicity associated with them which makes it easier for workers to handle and use.

Please refer to the MSDS for information on detailed exposure limits and toxicity-related data.

NuGenTec FluoSolv® Ten-X 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. Flashpoint data and vapor flammability limits in Air are shown in Table 3 below.
