Vapor Degreasing for Metals
Unlike TCE and nPB, NuGenTec FluoSolv® vapor-degreasing blends have the ability to wet the parts completely & thoroughly due to the fact the proprietary fluorinated fluids present in the FluoSolv® CX, FluoSolv® AP and FluoSolv® Ten-X have a high-density, low viscosity and low surface-tension thus removing sub-micron soils easily. The trans-dichloroethylene provides excellent solubility to most machining oils and metalworking lubricants & greases.
For applications that fall under precision cleaning & vapor-degreasing where parts have plastic or elastomers in them, it is recommended that FluoSolv® CX-500 be used due to its excellent compatibility for plastics and polymeric materials. FluoSolv® CX-500 is a non-ozone depleting solvent blend that is drop-in replacement for Asahi AK-225 which is an hydrochlorofluorocarbon(HCFC) which have been banned from production and use since Jan 1, 2015.
