Cutting-Edge Cleaning Fluid

MICROCARE LLC expanded its line of precision cleaning fluids with the introduction of Tergo vapor degreasing cleaning fluids, designed for a range of industrial technical cleaning needs with distinctive formulas that deliver reliable and repeatable cleaning performance.

The Tergo XCF2 specialty cleaning fluid, flux remover, and degreaser offers novel cleaning benefits, effectively removing heavy greases, silicone oils, and challenging organic contaminants from metals, alloys, composites, and some plastics. Its high, >100 Kb value cleaning power ensures thorough heavy degreasing and flux removal, while its low surface tension and high liquid density make it ideal for particle displacement and as a carrier fluid for fluorinated polymers, oils, and greases.

Tergo XCF2 also performs as a drying agent after hydrocarbon or alcohol cleaning, and is a superior replacement for HCFCs, HFEs, nPB, Perc, TCE, and other solvents like 3M Novec 71DA, 72DA and Solvay Solvokane. It is thermally and hydrolytically stable, non-flammable, non-corrosive, and has an extremely low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of <1 and a zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP.) It is PFAS-free under current United States and European definitions.

“Our new Tergo cleaning fluids are formulated to offer comparable, if not enhanced, performance to the 3M Novec solvents, which are known for their performance and reliability," stated Tom Tattersall, CEO of MicroCare. "We are committed to providing our customers with high-quality alternatives that maintain the integrity of their cleaning processes without causing major disruptions to their processes or budgets."

Fast drying and recoverable by simple distillation, Tergo XCF2 is compatible with ultrasonics, making it versatile for critical cleaning applications in aerospace and medical industries. This specialty solvent blend is suitable for both open-top and vacuum vapor degreasers, providing exceptional material compatibility and efficiency.

The Tergo non-water-based vapor degreasing fluids integrate seamlessly into existing equipment and processes, requiring minimal adjustments. These nonflammable fluids ensure chemical stability and enhanced safety during usage and storage.

MicroCare Tergo fluids are readily available for immediate global shipment, eliminating import delays and ensuring uninterrupted supply.
