® 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.
® 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.
® 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.
® 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
® 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.

® 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.
® 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.
