Solvokane™ X

Solvokane™ X is a near azeotropic mixture of Solvokane™, an azeotropic, non-flammable mixture of Solkane® 365mfc (1,1,1,3,3-pentafluorobutane) and t-DCE (1,2-dichloroethlylene), with a higher portion of t-DCE. It was developed and patented by Solvay Fluor GmbH for increased solubility and heavy duty cleaning. It is suitable for the vapor degreasing environment. 

The phase-out of conventional solutions (e.g., CFCs and HCFCs) has required alternative products. Solvokane™ X offers product characteristics which are very close to HCFC 141b and CFC 113, with a Kauri Butanol (Kb) Index of 76. The solvency power versus common contaminants is stronger than the Kb value would suggest.

EPA/SNAP approved, Solvokane™ X is a new generation, environmentally-compatible solvent. A volatile, colorless liquid without ozone depletion potential (ODP = 0), it has
a relatively low global warming potential (GWP), as well as other properties which make it a superior replacement for CFCs and HCFCs.

Solvokane™ X Features and Benefits

  • Fast drying with no-residue
  • Low temperature with a boiling point 36 ºC
  • Non-flammable near azeotrope
  • Excellent toxicity characteristics
  • Drop in replacement for high cost HFC/HFE solvents
  • Cleaning similar to R 141b and R 113
  • Can be used as a starting point or component for more complex/customized solvent formulations

Typical Applications
Solvokane™ X was designed to serve numerous applications and it is applicable as formulated. It can, however, be used as a starting point or component for more complex or customized solvent formulations which can be adjusted for the needs of the industry.

Environmental Aspects
SNAP approved, Solvokane™ X is a new generation, environmentally-compatible solvent. A volatile, colorless liquid without ozone depletion potential (ODP = 0), it
has a relatively low global warming potential (GWP) of 278, as well as other properties which make it a superior replacement for CFCs and HCFCs.
