EXTON, Pa., August 24, 2021 – AGC Chemicals Americas introduces AMOLEA™ AS-300 and AS-300AT fluorinated cleaning solvents, based on new HCFO chemistry. These cleaning solvents were developed to help manufacturers of high-value medical devices meet precision cleaning needs in an environmentally safe way.
Both are categorized as nonhazardous air pollutants with an ozone depletion potential near zero and global warming potential of less than one.
AGC will feature AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT cleaning solvents at BIOMEDevice 2021, booth 433, September 21–22 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT are ideal replacements for HFC solvents and low-boiling-point HCFO solvents, as well as n-propyl bromide (nPB or 1-BP) and trichloroethylene, which are both undergoing risk evaluation under the TSCA. These new HCFO solvents have superior solvency with Kb cleaning value of 44 and 118 respectively and a favorable health, safety and environment (HSE) profile. Both have an advantageous boiling point enabling less solvent to be consumed during the cleaning process.
At BIOMEDevice 2021, AGC will also showcase:
FORBLUE™ sunsep™ gas humidifiers/dryers with a highly moisture-selective membrane that can humidify oxygen and specialty gases or dry sample gases. They are simply structured with hollow fiber membranes and durable casings. The membrane is made from a fluorinated ionomer, so it has high chemical resistance and minimizes permeability of gases other than moisture. It features a simple mechanism of H2O pressure to cause wet/dry gas production.
AMOLEA™ AT2 and AsahiKlin™ AE-3000 environmentally sensible fluorinated solvents. These nonflammable fluorinated cleaning solvents provide a safer, highly effective and environmentally friendly alternative to other solvents such as n-propyl bromide and trichloroethylene. They are chemically and thermally stable and have no flash point.
