FluoSolv® AP approved for use under Boeing Spec BAC 5408
26 July 2017 - Emeryville, California - NuGenTec, the manufacturer of FluoSolv® vapor-degreasing solvents has now received approval for use of FluoSolv® AP under specification BAC 5408 by Boeing Testing Services. This qualification came after rigorous testing of FluoSolv AP for use on all non-ferrous metals such as titanium parts and assemblies. This qualification is now Revision M, PSD 6-74 which is the latest revision to BAC 5408.
Boeing suppliers using n-propyl bromide (nPB) for vapor-degreasing will now have a safer alternative of using FluoSolv® AP which has excellent solvency for oils, lubricants and greases, besides being non-flammable, non-toxic and fast-drying.
Replacement for TCE & nPB
FluoSolv® AP can be used in vapor degreasing to replace Trichloroethylene (TCE) as well as 1-Bromopropane or n-propyl bromide (nPB) which is commercially sold under the name Entron Aero for aerospace applications. Recent studies by OSHA, US-EPA and other NGOs have concluded that nPB is a neurotoxin. In 2012 AICGH called nPB as a “Confirmed Animal Carcinogen” and lowered is exposure limit to 0.1 ppm.
