The powerful, safe and eco-friendly cleaning agent.

Part of the new Opteon™ S-Series of advanced speciality fluids by Chemours™, Opteon™ Sion™ is a powerful, safe and eco-friendly component cleaning agent. Its remarkable characteristics make it the ideal drop-in replacement for restricted chlorinated solvents such as nProply bromide (nPB) and perchloroethylene (PERC).


New generation Opteon™ Sion by Chemours™ is the component cleaning agent that delivers safe, effective and eco-friendly cleaning with uncompromised cleaning power. Sion™ is:

  • An easy drop-in alternative to restricted solvents such as Trichloroethylene (Trike) , nPropyl Bromide (nPB) and Perchloroethylene (PERC)
  • Eco-friendly, with a low global warming potential (GWP), recyclable and re-usable
  • Non-flammable and safe in use, with a safe exposure limit of 200ppm (parts per million) – the limit for nPB is 2000 times lower at 0.1ppm
  • High performing, with 100kb cleaning power, comparable to older solvents and over twice that of HFE
  • Cost-effective – energy-saving and inherently stable, needing no acid testing, stabiliser maintenance, solvent monitoring or vapour extraction
  • SMI-tested for aero industry materials specification – conforms to BAC 5750, tested in accordance with ARP 1755B, ASTM F1110, ASTM F 519 (1A.1) and ASTM F945-06 (A).
