Chemours’ methoxytridecafluoroheptene (MPHE) was approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for commercialization. MPHE, or Vertrel Sion, is a stable fluid that does not require acid testing or stabilizer maintenance. The company claims this fluid is a non-flammable replacement for trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene, n-propyl bromide (nPB), HCFC-225, alcohol, acetone, MEK and other fluids where maximum cleaning power is needed. This fluid is approved for use in vapor degreasers, aerosol dispensers and adhesive applications, and is being commercialized by MicroCare in North America. MicroCare plans to roll out the product in the fourth quarter of 2015 leading into early 2016.
