Tergo™ Chlorine Free Cleaning Fluid and High Strength Degreaser

Product Information

The Tergo CFCF (Chlorine Free Cleaning Fluid) is sustainable for maximum environmental protection



  • Tergo CFCF has superior environmental characteristics
  • Powerful, high temperature cleaning removes insoluble contamination
  • Excellent materials compatibility with most metals, plastics and ceramics
  • Parts come out clean, dry and near room temperature
  • Halogen-free
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Chemical Family: Hydrocarbon cleaning solvent, HFC rinsing fluid
  • Not a HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutant)
  • RoHS, REACH, F-Gas, SNAP and WEEE compliant

Tergo CFCF is a two-part, nonflammable, non-chlorinated, multi-functional cleaning fluid engineered for use in vapor degreasers sometimes is referred to as a “an additve cleaning system.” The solvating additive is a proprietary, non-volatile mixture. The rinsing chemistry is a hydrofluorocarbon. Together, the system delivers excellent cleaning on all types of solder fluxes, oils, greases, waxes, and particulates, paints, buffing compounds and anti-rust agents.

The newer, safer fluids boil at or below 54°C / 130°F, which may not introduce enough thermal energy to remove these stubborn temperature-sensitive soils. Other fluids attempt to accomplish this by enhancing their products with trans-1,2 dichloroethylene, but they may be too aggressive on certain substrates. Tergo™  Chlorine Free Cleaning Fluid is a high temperature degreaser which allows the option of vapor degreaser cleaning at higher operating temperatures to dissolve materials like wax and heavy hydrocarbons.

Almost any existing two-sump vapor degreaser can be used with this product. A simple thermodynamic process inherent in the chemistry allows for maximum cleaning flexibility and broad compatibility with plastics and elastomers.
