Tergo XCF1 is a pure, monosolvent designed to clean a broad range of soils using either an open-top or vacuum vapor degreaser. It can also be used for displacing sub-micron particles in critical  applications and carrying coatings and lubricants. This hydrochlorofluoroolefin is a nonflammable fluid that has excellent material compatibility across a wide spectrum of substrates. Its chemical properties also make it hostile to pathogens, and do not contribute to bioburden, which is critical in aerospace and medical applications.

Tergo XCF1 is hydrolytically stable and therefore does not require chemical stabilizers or boosters to prevent it from breaking down in the presence of excess water or mild acid-base activators. While Tergo XCF1 was designed for efficient use in closed-loop vapor degreasing systems, it is also functional as a line flush fluid or for solvent extraction applications.
