Since creating the n-propyl bromide (nPB) solvent market in 1994, Enviro Tech has made it our mission to be the best and most knowledgeable supplier of high-quality, stabilized n propyl bromide industrial cleaners — also known as 1-bromopropane. Our commitment has led to a superior cleaning solution for metal degreasing and precision cleaning.
For more than two decades, Enviro Tech International, Inc. has been manufacturing EnSolv, a revolutionary n propyl bromide-based vapor degreasing and industrial cleaning solvent used around the world. EnSolv is specifically formulated to address the difficult cleaning problems experienced in high-tech industries that require exceptional levels of cleanliness. Some of our EnSolv products include:
All variations of EnSolv Solvents leave virtually no residue, and conform to SAE ARP 1176. Furthermore, EnSolv is the most stable 1-bromopropane solvent available; its original patented stabilizer formula provides for consistent performance and rust inhibition, in addition to superior soil penetration and lifting properties.
Enviro Tech promotes strict quality-control procedures, ensuring that each individual raw ingredient that goes into our EnSolv degreaser is optimally prepared. Our rigid standards and overall commitment to excellence even led Boeing to approve EnSolv® 5408 as the first n-propyl bromide (nPB) solvent alternative to trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE or PERC) under the BAC5408 vapor degreasing specification.
N-propyl bromide and therefore EnSolv offers a high efficacy of cleaning due to cyclical nature of vapor degreasing and also offers low global warming and ozone depletion potential of n propyl bromide. Other unique benefits of EnSolv include:
Tech Kleen, another powerful nPB-based vapor degreaser, is used across multiple industries throughout the country to clean everything from grease and oil to flux and mold. Its advanced formulation tackles the frustrating cleaning problems experienced by manufacturers every day.
Enviro Tech is proud to offer Tech Kleen to industrial professionals who are seeking a direct replacement of harmful chlorinated solvents like perchloroethylene and trichloroethylene. Similar to EnSolv, multinational corporations, including Boeing, have approved Tech Kleen as a replacement for trichloroethylene.
Tech Kleen products include:
There are several protocols that you should use whenever these chemicals are part of your operations. First and foremost, proper ventilation is key. Keeping the air moving will prevent the fumes from lingering where workers can breathe them.
Isolation is another proven strategy for mitigating the risk. Whenever possible, keep the activities that utilize these solvents separate from the rest of your processes. This will ensure that only those employees who have direct contact with them have to worry about exposure.
Finally, the use of respirators and other personal protective equipment is required. This includes sleeves, aprons and chemical-protective gloves. Be sure that the gloves you provide are rated specifically to protect against nPB, such as polyvinyl alcohol or multilayer laminates (a list of recommended gloves by chemistry type can be found here). Most other materials offer little to no protection due to the nature of the chemicals.
Another proven strategy is to use other products that don’t present these issues. If you’re looking for alternatives to n-propyl bromide, view our line of fluorinated solvents here. Depending on your needs and facilities, these may be a better alternative.
