Premium Hydrocarbon for Textile Dry Cleaning
The fastest growing alternative dry-cleaning fluid is hydrocarbon based solvent. These solvents are comprised of straight and multi-branched mixtures of hydrocarbons. Some of these compounds act as better solvents and some can be relatively more harmful to the environment and product user.
Calypsolv HC is a direct solvent replacement for dry-cleaning machines designed to operate using high flash (>140 F) hydrocarbon solvent. Technichem's Calypsolv HC contains a unique stabilizer package to prevent product degradation and to protect expensive equipment from corrosion. Calypsolv HC can be directly added and used during any machine life cycle; the initial start-up, the routine addition of solvent; or the complete replacement of cleaning solvent.
Benefits of using Calypsolv Hydrocarbon
Direct replacement for hydrocarbon solvents with flash point > 140 F
Enhanced stabilizer package to minimize degradation
Reduced environmental impact and lower health risk to users
The difficulty with hydrocarbon solvent is crafting a formulation that exhibits the best textile cleaning characteristics and provides the user with the greatest environmental and product safety. Technichem's new hydrocarbon solvent, Calypsolv HC is the ultimate hydrocarbon solvent for textile dry-cleaning applications. Calypsolv HC is a blend of the most stable iso-paraffinic hydrocarbons and is highly purified to reduce or remove harmful and unwanted components.
Perchloroethylene is widely used throughout the world and is the leading cleaning solvent for textile dry-cleaning applications. Perchloroethylene or PCE, is a chlorinated solvent with extensively researched qualities and characteristics. PCE exhibits excellent solvent capability and is non-flammable, non-explosive, and non-reactive. Technichem's virgin perchloroethylene is manufactured with the highest degree of purity and formulated specifically for dry-cleaning applications. This formulation includes a stabilizer package that minimizes product degradation and maximizes the corrosion resistance when used with textile dry-cleaning equipment. Technichem's virgin perchloroethylene is suitable in any amount (recharge or refill) for use in dry-cleaning machines designed to use perchloroethylene as the cleaning solvent.
