BHC Introduces SolVantage Vapor Degreasing Fluid to Replace Scrutinized nPB and TCE
Indianapolis, Indiana – July 9, 2017
BHC introduces SolVantage™ Vapor Solv, a non-flammable, high performance, precision cleaning solvent designed for vapor degreasing – an azeotropic, flourinated solvent degreaser, drop-in replacement for n-propyl bromide (nPB), TCE and other vapor degreasing solvents. The first vapor degreasing fluid in the BHC line-up, SolVantage Vapor Solv is safe on virtually all metals, is non-corrosive and will not stain metals.
BHC, formerly Brulin, has a rich history in aqueous degreasing solutions dating back to when they led the technology shift in the Space and Aerospace industry to aqueous degreasing as a result of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) being eliminated by the US EPA (Montreal Protocol). And now that the EPA is looking to enact legislation that may eliminate the use of n-propyl bromide (nPB) and TCE as vapor degreasing/precision cleaning solvents, BHC is once again leading the technology shift.
“BHC can now provide customers aqueous or solvent, alternative chemistries.” said Jeff Beard, BHC’s Industrial Business Development Manager. “By expanding our already established aqueous product line to include a vapor degreasing fluid we are able to provide our high reliability customers with a long term solvent degreasing option – SolVantage Vapor Solv.”
Not only is SolVantage Vapor Solv a drop in replacement for nPB and TCE worldwide, but it’s formulated to have excellent solvency and low surface tension, 14.1 dynes. It meets worldwide EHS requirements and has zero ozone depletion potential, low global warming potential and low VOC’s. Visit our vapor degreasing page for more information.
