Tergo MCF (Metal Cleaning fluid) is an effective, sustainable cleaner with a low global warming potential
- Used in the aerospace, automotive, medical, oil exploration and industrial sectors
- Use as a metal cleaner or a flux remover
- Removes hardened greases, oils, caramelized flux residues, rosins, fingerprints and ionic contaminants
- Cleans the widest variety of metal alloys
- An excellent replacement for HCFCs, nPB, perc and TCE
- Fast drying has a low boiling point for maximum throughput in a vapor degreaser – cleaned parts are processed and used immediately
- High soil loading capacity to reduce downtime associated with fluid change-outs
- An azeotrope, for maximum stability and easy recycling
- Handles a greater concentration of dissolved water without using alcohol additives or desiccants
- Ideal for use with ultrasonics to overcome gravitational and intermolecular forces which bind particulates to substrates
- Maintenance free – eliminates the need for acid acceptance testing and scavengers
- Specifically engineered for fast, consistent and economical cleaning in vapor degreasers
- Drop-in replacement – requires minor or no modifications to existing vapor degreasers
- With a low surface tension, low viscosity and high density, it cleans great inside tight, complex spaces
- Very good materials compatibility
- Nonflammable for facility safety
- Almost no aroma for happier workers
- Requires no surfactants and unlike aqueous cleaning, removes extra washing steps to get residue-free parts
- Tergo Metal Cleaning Fluid is hostile to pyrogens
- Thermally and chemically stable for long fluid life
- Very good toxicity rating for worker and environmental safety
- Recyclable inside a vapor degreaser – reduces cost of ownership and environmental footprint
- Not a HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutant)
- RoHS, REACH, F-GAS and WEEE compliant
