NEXT-HD Pro is a precision cleaning solvent mixture of 1,2-trans-dichloroethylene and proprietary fluorinated compounds. It was designed with no HFC’s, for cleaning applications as a direct substitute for solvents like nPB, Chemours Vertrel®, 3M Novec®, HCFC-225 and others.

NEXT-HD Pro is Enviro Tech’s newest 1,2 trans blend using no HFC’s. This solvent blend is perfectly suited for vapor degreasing in modern equipment and general cleaning. Its solvency for hydrocarbon soils is superior to most similar high-trans fluorinated solvent blends. With a high KB value of 94, it can reliably replace other cleaning solvents such as n-propyl bromide (nPB) and trichloroethylene (TCE). It can also be used as a carrier fluid for deposition of materials such as silicone and other lubricants.

NEXT-HD Pro has broad spectrum cleaning capability for many types of contaminants including cutting oils, heavy greases, stamping oils, gear oils, hydraulic oils, vacuum oils, mineral oils, waxes, and cutting oils.

Common replacement for:

  • n-propyl bromide (nPB) 
  • trichloroethylene (TCE)

Features & Benefits

• Zero Surface Residue
• Low Surface Tension
• Low Viscosity
• NON-Flammable
• NO Flash Point
• High Solvency

Environmental Properties

NEXT-HD Pro ingredients are listed acceptable by the U.S. EPA under the SNAP program as a substitute for ozone depleting substances, are not subject to SARA Title III (EPCRA) reporting regulation. It is not considered a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) and therefore is not regulated under NESHAP. 

Spent NEXT-HD Pro is not considered hazardous waste in the US as long as a hazardous material is not deposited into the solvent during the cleaning process.

• Zero Ozone Depletion
• GWP of 87

Materials Compatibility

NEXT-HD Pro is compatible with most polymers and elastomers typically encountered during cleaning and vapor degreasing of precision parts, electronics, etc.

The solvent is also compatible with steel, aluminum, titanium, and every other metal commonly used in precision parts manufacturing.

A complete reference chart showing plastics and elastomers compatibility is available on page 2 of the TDS.

Storage and Handling

NEXT-HD Pro is thermally stable and will not oxidize or degrade during storage under normal conditions. It is recommended to store the product inside a clean, dry area and out of direct sunlight or other heat sources. Do not freeze or store below 32°F (0°C) nor above 105°F (40.5°C) to prevent leakage or potential rupture of container due to contraction/expansion and pressure changes. Drum pumps are recommended to dispense the solvent from its container. Refer to the Safety Data
Sheet for more information or contact Enviro Tech for further assistance.
