Use EnTron-Aero for Pre-Cleaning

EnTron-Aero is used by aerospace companies for:

  • Surface Preparation of Titanium Detail Parts for Better Adhesive Bonding
  • Surface Preparation of Titanium Parts for better Non-Destructive Testing Results
  • Removal of NDT florescent penetrants from Titanium Parts after NDT testing
  • Pre-cleaning of layers for Metal-to-Sandwich Assemblies
  • Deep Cleaning of Honeycomb core structures
  • Precision Cleaning and meeting Product Cleanliness standards

Significant Performance Advantages of EnTron-Aero:

  • Approved by Boeing for use in vapor degreasing
  • Specially formulated for Aerospace Cleaning Applications
  • Approved for use on Titanium
  • Non-Flammable (has no flash point)
  • Non-Chlorinated (replaces TCE and PERC)
  • US-EPA SNAP approved (Significant New Alternative Policy)
  • Approved to ASTM-D-6368
  • Recyclable & Distillable
  • Performance Properties equivalent to TCE/PERC without the negative impacts

Significant Cost Benefits of EnTron-Aero

We recognize that the total cost of cleaning is more than just the cost of the solvent. That is why with EnTron-Aero you find a competitively priced product, and a full compliment of support personnel, and performance characteristics that enhance the cost-effectiveness of choosing EnTron-Aero:

  • Excellent Soil Loading - increases amounts of parts cleaned
  • Extensive Bath Life and Stability - limits excessive bath monitoring
  • Contains no HAP's -reduces H&S impacts
  • Not NESHAP Regulated - reduces reporting and shipping costs
  • Free-to-Use Spent solvent program - reduces disposal costs
  • Manufacturer's Expertise and Product Support - saves you time and money
  • Continued use of your existing equipment - reduces new capital investment
  • Easily Distillable - increases longevity of solvent usage

Compatible with large variety of substrates including Titanium

EnTron-Aero is approved for use on Titanium and is formulated to be compatible with all metals and a broad range of elastomers and plastics.

Superior Cleaning of Complex Parts in Precision Vapor Degreasing and Ultrasonic Cleaning

EnTron-Aero's low surface tension, high evaporation rate and powerful solvency make it ideal for removing contaminants from parts with blind holes and complex geometries or for batch cleaning of multiple small parts in vapor degreasing and ultrasonic cleaning applications.

EnTron-Aero is highly effective in cleaning organic contaminants such as oils, greases, lubricants, coolants, drawing fluids, adhesives, waxes, fluxes and flux residues.

Powerful Drop-In Replacement for Chlorinated Solvents: Trichloroethylene and Perchloroethylene

EnTron-Aero is a powerful, safe alternative to TCE (Trichloroethylene) and PERC (Perchloroethylene) has been approved under BAC5408 for use as a drop-in replacement for TCE and PERC in aerospace vapor degreasing and ultrasonic cleaning. The physical properties (no flash point, fast evaporation, 160°F boiling point, solvency power, extended bath life, stability, and distillation) and favorable regulatory profile make EnTron-Aero ideal for replacing chlorinated solvents.

EnTron-Aero has an improved regulatory profile over TCE & PERC

EnTron-Aero is an advanced solvent formulation with a favorable regulatory profile. It does not require the environmental reporting procedures, such as NESHAP or OSHA HAZCOM that TCE does. EnTron-Aero also has a very low global warming potential (.0005), and very low ozone depletion potential (.016), while requiring less energy in vapor cleaning because of its lower boiling point (160°F) than TCE. Clearly, when you consider the improved environmental profile and H&S profile of EnTron-Aero, it becomes the better choice.
