MicroCare XE Carrier Fluid and Degreaser has good solvency of mineral oils and other hydrocarbons
- Light-duty cleaning and rinsing
- Removal of particulate and light soils from metal, ceramic, plastic and glass parts
- Gentle cleaning with extraordinary materials compatibility
- Nonflammable for maximum safety
- Ethanol used for polarity instead of IPA or methanol, for regulatory compliance
- A versatile fluid miscible with many common lubricants
- 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
- Almost no aroma for happier workers
- Requires no surfactants and unlike aqueous cleaning, removes extra washing steps to get residue-free parts
- 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)
MicroCare XE Carrier Fluid and Rinse is a proprietary, nonflammable azeotropic fluid mixed with ethanol. Uses Ethanol over IPA or methanol for polarity, regulatory compliance and worker safety.
