Tergo™ Metal Cleaning Fluid is an effective metal cleaner and flux remover for cleaning medical devices and parts during manufacture. It is designed for use inside a vapour degreaser and makes an excellent replacement for older cleaners like nPB, TCE or Perc that negatively impact air quality.
Based on HFO-technology, Tergo MCF Tergo Metal Cleaning Fluid is an environmentally-sustainable cleaning fluid. It has a low GWP (Global Warming Potential) under 10 and a zero ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential). It also does not require HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutant) documentation or reporting.
Nonflammable Tergo MCF is a preferred choice for facility safety. It also has an excellent long-term exposure limit (8-hour TWA) of 200 ppm.
Unlike older solvents like nPB, Tergo MCF is easy to maintain. It doesn’t require scavengers or acid stabilisers. Also, unlike aqueous cleaners, it uses no surfactants or other additives and removes extra washing and rinsing steps to deliver residue-free parts. Parts typically clean and dry inside a vapour degreaser in just 6-20 minutes. Plus, Tergo MCF is an azeotrope making it stable, easy to use and simple to recycle.
Tergo MCF is a strong cleaner with a kB value of 108, yet has excellent materials compatibility and is safe to use on many substrates. With low viscosity, low surface tension and high density, it cleans small, complex parts with ease. It is also hostile to pyrogens and will not promote bioburden.
