Tergo XCF2 is a specialty solvent blend designed to clean difficult soils using either an open-top or vacuum vapor degreaser. It is a high-KB fluid suited for metal cleaning and circuit board applications. Tergo XCF2 can also be used for displacing sub-micron particles in critical applications and carrying coatings and lubricants. This hydrochlorofluoroolefin-based azeotropic blend is a nonflammable fluid that has excellent material compatibility across a wide spectrum of metal alloys and high density polymer 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 XCF2 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 XCF2 is designed for efficient use in closed-loop vapor degreasing systems, it is also functional as a line flush fluid or for solvent extraction applications.
