Degreasing solvent

Degreasing solvent

Degreasing solvent

hello fellas

What is the best vapour degreasing solvent that can replace trichloroethylene? or even if is a strong alkaline degreaser.

This solvent is to remove oil and grease soil.

RE: Degreasing solvent

Identifying the "best" would require knowledge of multiple factors. You can do your own research, here are some to look at:

Vapor degreasing: DuPont Vertrel specialty fluid, various suppliers of n-propyl bromide

Detergent cleaning: numerous products from multiple suppliers, e.g. Henkel Parco Cleaner 800 or Chemetall Gardoclean S 5065 or SurTec 199

RE: Degreasing solvent

I wish people would stop asking for "best" anything. In engineering, "best" is usually not possible, since there are almost always compromises to be made, for cost, for usability, for environmental, etc. Without a detailed constraint space, there is no "best"
