Purasolve Surface Prep as a Replacement for Acetone in the Defence Industry
acetone, aviation, defence, surface preparation
Purasolve is an innovative replacement for dangerous solvents like acetone, kerosene, and other benzene derivatives. It is poised to transform the way the defence industry approaches surface preparation and help ensure a safer, more sustainable future.
The Defence industry requires highly effective and safe cleaning solutions for various applications, including weld preparation, aviation glue removal and surface cleaning.
Traditionally, acetone has been a commonly used solvent for these purposes.
However, acetone is highly flammable and has a strong odour, which makes it potentially hazardous to operate. To address these concerns, Envirofluid developed Purasolve Surface Prep.
This non-flammable, low-odour solvent is a highly effective replacement for acetone in the Defence industry.
Purasolve Surface Prep, as a replacement for acetone in the Defence industry, results in significantly lower usage due to its lower vapour pressure and more prolonged-lasting effects. In addition, it passes the flame test, making it a safer alternative to acetone.
The following observations were made when this product was tested:
Last 30 Times Longer
Designed to last up to 20 to 30 times longer than traditional solvents, Purasolve is an environmentally-friendly solution that reduces toxic waste and costs.
Extremely High Flashpoint
Another key advantage of Purasolve Surface Prep is its extremely high flashpoint and low vapour pressure, making it almost impossible to ignite under normal working conditions. This feature makes it a perfect choice for most environments, ensuring increased safety irrespective of the possible ignition source.
In addition to its safety benefits, Purasolve Surface Prep evaporates slowly, dramatically reducing fumes and VOC exposure for workers. Its high-performance capabilities extend to even the heaviest hydrocarbons, saving time, method, and operational costs.
Purasolve has a vast range of applications in the field and workshops. Purasolve Surface Prep ensures a safer, better and more cost-effective solution.
No Defects in the Resulting Welds
A Defence contractor was looking for a replacement for acetone for weld preparation. They tested Purasolve Surface Prep and found it was highly effective, with no defects in the resulting welds.
Purasolve Surface Prep was found to use up to 10 times less solvent than acetone due to its lower vapour pressure and more prolonged-lasting effects.
10x Reduction of Solvent Usage
Similarly, in the case of removing aviation glue, Purasolve Surface Prep was proven to be a highly effective replacement for acetone. Users reported over ten times reduction of solvent usage, making it a cost-effective and efficient solution for this application.
Purasolve Surface Prep is a highly effective and safe replacement for acetone in the Defence industry. Its lower vapour pressure and more prolonged lasting effects result in significantly lower solvent usage, making it a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solution.
Furthermore, it passes the flame test, making it a safer alternative to acetone. Its efficacy in weld preparation and aviation glue removal applications makes it a versatile and valuable addition to any Defence industry cleaning regimen.
