Formulated as a safe replacement for trichloroethyelene (TCE), perchloroethyelene (PERC) and petroleum-based solvents, Petroferm’s Bioact 280 is a bio-based immersion cleaner for quickly dissolving masking waxes, fixturing and buffing compounds, and high-melt-point soils.
The low-odor solvent features a neutral pH and reduced volatile organic compound emissions, and is said to be safe to use on all alloys. It also offers a long bath life of 18-24 months, which the company says can be extended with an alkaline rinse agent such CleanSafe 686 or CleanSafe 787C.
