Vertrel™ SDG Specialty Fluid
Vertrel™ SDG is an engineered mixture of non-flammable hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (t-DCE).
Vertrel™ SDG is designed to replace trichloroethylene (TCE) and n-propyl bromide (nPB); and perform in applications where maximum cleaning power is needed. It can also be used as a substitute for other cleaners such HCFC-225 and its blends, HCFC-14 lb, HFEs, PFCs, CFCs, and aqueous cleaners when safety and environmental concerns and/or floor space and cleanliness are a premium.
Vertrel™ SDG has excellent solvency power for a wide range of soils including oils, greases, waxes and hydraulic fluids. The high solvency power, low surface tension and non-flammability properties of Vertrel® SDG make it an ideal ultrasonic vapor degreasing solvent.
Vertrel™ SDG is ideal for a wide range of
cleaning applications including:
- Oil, grease, and wax removal
- Silicone carrier fluid
- Silicone grease removal
- Precision cleaning
Vertrel™ SDG has "zero" ozone depletion potential and low global warming potential. Vertrel™ SDG is accepted by the US Environmental Protection Agency under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program as a substitute for ozone-depleting substances (solvent category).
