CHLORINATED VERSUS NON-CHLORINATED BRAKE CLEANER WHY?
- During the late 80’s oil recyclers starting checking oil for “chlorinated” solvents
- If they found chlorinated solvents in the drain oil, they were refusing the drain oil because they could not recycle chlorinated solvents out of the drain oil
- The brake cleaner industry came up with a non-chlorinated version that actually was a hybrid spray similar to a spray carburetor cleaner
- This new non chlorinated product dried just as fast but would have to be classified as flammable.
- Non Chlorinated brake cleaners are a mixture of ketones, aliphatic and aromatic solvents as opposed to chlorinated solvents
Volatile organic compounds, (VOC) are organic chemical compounds whose composition makes it possible for them to evaporate under normal indoor atmospheric conditions of temperature and pressure, thus causing smog or atmospheric haze.
