Re: Less hazardous alternative to TCE degreasing



Try soy solvent - this Glysol PC product has had great sucess with replacing harsh chemical cleaners - Rich Soble is a great guy to work with too - tell him I told you I heard his soy solvent was the best one on the market!

Happy holidays P2 friends:

 

Do you have suggestions for this client?  She is not interest in aqueous alternatives.

 

Nancy,

I am looking for a good non-hazardous (or less hazardous) drop-in replacement for the trichloroethylene we currently use in our vapor degreaser.  I wish to utilize a chemical that I will not require an air-supplied respirator for my operators.  We currently hand-wipe our parts with denatured ethyl alcohol.  I am not looking for a cold solvent to hand wipe parts with, or an aqueous cleaner.

If you know of anything or anyone who can help, I would appreciate the information!

Have a Merry Christmas
