Honeywell Introduces New High-Performance, Environmentally Preferable Solvent
March 24, 2014
Honeywell has introduced a new high-performance, low-global-warming-potential solvent that offers excellent cleaning power for metal and plastic parts.
The new solvent, Solstice® Performance Fluid (PF), effectively cleans oils, greases and other substances commonly encountered in many cleaning applications, ranging from electronics manufacturing to military and aerospace equipment repair. Solstice PF has a global warming potential (GWP) of 1, which is more than 99 percent lower than the GWPs of today's most commonly used solvents. The new material provides solvent users with a cost-effective, energy-efficient and environmentally-preferable alternative to high-GWP solvents.
The widespread adoption of Solstice PF could save about 18 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year, which is comparable to eliminating carbon dioxide emissions from more than 3 million cars every year.
