B.A.F. Safety Solvent 
For Vapour Degreasing, Ultrasonic Cleaning & Cold Tank Cleaning

Baf

Replacing: 1,1,1-Trichloroethylene, Tetrachloroethylene (Perchloroethylene) or Methylene Chloride.


Description:

BAF Safety Solvent has four times the solvency capacity as the traditional Chlorinated Solvents. Therefore it greatly reduces product consumption thereby reducing the amount of waste disposal hence lowering the cost. BAF Safety Solvent has a lower boiling point (69.5) than Trichloroethylene (87) and 1, 1, 1 TCA (74) therefore there is a reduction in energy usage. BAF Safety Solvent has twice the acid acceptance of traditional Chlorinated Solvents.

Features:

  • Four times more solvent capacity
  • Non Flammable no Flash Point
  • Fast Acting
  • Fast Drying
  • Leaves No Residue
  • Non Regulated for Transportation
  • Low Toxicity
  • Low Odour
  • Lower Boiling Point
  • Does not contain 1, 1, 1 Trichloroethylene, Tetrachloroethylene (Perchloroethylene) or Methylene Chloride
  • Improved Health and Safety
  • Improved environmental performance

BAF Safety Solvent easily removes:

Oils and Greases

Fluxes

Silicone Oils

Adhesives

Resins and Inks

Waxes


Applications:
