There are many solvents available in today’s market from low cost chlorinated and brominated fluids, flammable hydrocarbon and modified alcohol to the new generation fluorinated solvents. Many factors come into play when choosing the best solution to your unique cleaning application.

With many older solvents being removed or restricted in use due to H&S or environmental reasons, the Opteon™ range of products is now a very real and cost effective long-term option for many applications.

At Fraser Technologies we can run evaluation and cleanliness testing and advise on the best options for both chemistry and equipment.

Vertrel® XP

Vertrel-XP

Vertrel® XP is ideally suited for cleaning fine particulate matter from metal and non-metal parts. Contaminants such as dust particles, skin flakes, fibres and other process contaminants. Removal of these contaminants requires a solvent that can reduce the laminar boundary layer thickness to allow particles to be washed away by the liquid solvent flow-through. A thin boundary layer and higher liquid flow-through momentum can be accomplished with a solvent such as Vertrel® XP which has a high density, low viscosity, and low surface tension so that fine particles can be debonded efficiently.

Vertrel® XP is a non-ozone depleter and is used to replace current Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) in most applications.

Vertrel®  XP is ideal for a wide range of cleaning applications including:
