||EXTON, Pa. — AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc. 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 Series is comprised of four products that are nonflammable and noncorrosive. They have low surface tensions, low viscosities, high liquid densities, and are chemically and thermally stable.
AsahiKlin AE-3000 is a hydrofluoroether for precision cleaning of metals, alloys, composites, and plastics and is 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 removes oils and greases from metal and electrical components and is a suitable replacement for HCFC, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, Vertre,l and Novec solvents.
AsahiKlin AE-3100E is a hydrofluoroether that works as a drying agent after wet plating, for carbide metal before coating for cleaning, and for drying after cleaning. It is suited to precision cleaning and dewatering, defluxing of electronics, electrical components, and printed wiring assemblies. It is an appropriate replacement for HCFC, and Vertrel and Novec solvents.
