AGC Chemicals Americas Launches Environmentally Compatible Fluorinated Solvents
AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc. (Exton, Pa.), is launching a new line of fluorinated solvents that have no flash point, no Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Low Global Warming Potential (GWP), making them safer and more environmentally friendly than traditional halogenated solvents. The AsahiKlin™ AE-3000 Series of products is designed for use as precision cleaning solvents, moisture displacement fluids, defluxing agents for electronics, and carrier solvents for lubricants. The products are being introduced at AGC’s booth #3594 at the MD&M West show taking place February 12 to 14 in Anaheim.
Developed by the makers of best-selling AsahiKlin AK-225, the AE-3000 Series comprises four products that are nonflammable and noncorrosive. They have low surface tensions, low viscosities and high liquid densities, and they are chemically and thermally stable.
- AsahiKlin AE-3000 is a hydrofluoroether excellent for precision cleaning of metals, alloys, composites and plastics and as a carrier solvent for fluorinated oils, greases and silicone oils. It is a suitable replacement for HCFC and DuPont’s Vertrel® and 3M’s Novec™ solvents.
- AsahiKlin AE-3000ATE is a mixture of trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, 1,1,2,2-Tetrafluoroethyl-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl ether, ethanol and a stabilizer. It is outstanding for defluxing printed wiring assemblies; precision cleaning of plastics, substrates, electrical components and metals; and particle removal. It is a suitable replacement for HCFC, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, and Vertrel and Novec solvents.
- AsahiKlin AE-3000AT is a mixture of trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, 1,1,2,2-Tetrafluoroethyl-2,2,2-trifluoroethyl ether and a stabilizer. It is outstanding for removing oils and greases from metal and electrical components. It is a suitable replacement for HCFC, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, and Vertrel and Novec solvents.
- AsahiKlin AE-3100E is a hydrofluoroether that offers outstanding drying and thus works as a high-performance drying agent after wet plating, for carbide metal before coating for cleaning, and for drying after cleaning. It is also well suited to precision cleaning and dewatering, as well as for defluxing of electronics, electrical components and printed wiring assemblies. It is an appropriate replacement for HCFC, and Vertrel and Novec solvents.
