NOVEC™ ENGINEERED FLUIDS VS. AQUEOUS CLEANING

USING NOVEC™ TO REPLACE N-PROPYL BROMIDE (NPB), TCE AND HCFCS

With significant toxicity concerns on the use of the vapor degreasing solvents n-propyl bromide (nPB) and trichloroethylene (TCE) and a global phase-out of ozone depleting substances like hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), many engineers are seeking a safer, more sustainable alternative.
