Effortless Precision Vapor Degreasing and Ultrasonic Cleaning of Complex Parts

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.

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

EnTron-Aero™ 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, azeotropic, 160°F boiling point, solvency power, stability and easy distillation) and make EnTron-Aero™ ideal for replacing chlorinated solvents.

EnTron-Aero™ is Cost-Effective

We recognize that the total cost of cleaning is more than just the cost of the solvent. That is why with EnTron-Aero™ not only will you find a competitively priced product, but a full compliment of support personnel, and performance characteristics that enhance the cost-effectiveness of choosing EnTron-Aero™:

Specially Formulated for Aerospace Cleaning Applications

EnTron-Aero™ is a technologically advanced nPB solvent formulation which produces consistent, stable results in vapor cleaning and degreasing applications, which is why it has been approved for use under Boeing Aircraft Company BAC5408. EnTron-Aero™ has passed extensive test validation by the premier aerospace manufacturer to ensure EnTron-Aero™ produces the level of cleaning required for aerospace parts.
