PWR-4 Solvent Cleaners
PWR-4™ solvent cleaners are ideal where a safer, non-flammable, and cost effective cleaner is required. This innovative solvent is much safer than the four most common industrial solvents: TCE, nPB, Perc and Methylene Chloride and quickly blasts off oils, greases, fluxes, silicones, dirt and grime.

Safer Replacements For Toxic Industrial Solvents
n-Propyl Bromide (nPB), Trichloroethylene (TCE), and Perchloroethylene (Perc) are three examples of harmful chemicals that are commonly used in aerosol cleaners in industrial applications. These chemicals are commonly used as cleaning solvents because they are non-flammable, have high solvency, and are relatively inexpensive.
Because of safety concerns, these solvents are under close scrutiny by OSHA, EPA, and local agencies. For example, The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) recommends a 10 ppm time-weighted average threshold limit, but has proposed a lower 0.1 ppm (ACGIH 2013). That’s because nPB is a suspected human carcinogen, and has shown to negative impact neurological and reproductive functioning.
