AGC Chemicals has developed AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT, based on new HCFO chemistry, to offer medical device manufacturers effective, environmentally friendly cleaning agents.
Categorized as non-hazardous air pollutants with an ozone depletion potential of near zero and a global warming potential of less than one, AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT are suitable replacements for HFC solvents, low boiling point HCFO solvents, and n-propyl bromide (nPB or 1-BP) and trichloroethylene, which are both undergoing risk evaluation under the EPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act. These new HCFO solvents have an advantageous boiling point that enables low evaporation, which means less solvent is consumed during the cleaning process. They also provide superior solvency with Kb value of 44 and 118 respectively and a favorable HSE (Health, Safety, Environment) profile, the company reported.
AGC will introduce AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT cleaning solvents at MD&M East, Booth 1350, December 7-9, at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. For more information, visit AGC’s experts at MD&M East Booth #1350 or go to AGC's MD&M East Showcase Page.
