AGC Chemicals Americas
EXTON, Pa., August 9, 2021 – Manufacturers of high-value medical devices require precision cleaning agents that are effective and environmentally friendly. To help meet these challenges, AGC has developed AMOLEA™ AS-300 and AS-300AT, based on new HCFO chemistry. These cleaning solvents are categorized as nonhazardous air pollutants with an ozone depletion potential near zero and global warming potential of less than one.
AGC will introduce AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT cleaning solvents at MD&M West, booth 2267, August 10–12, 2021, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.
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 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 MD&M West, AGC will also feature:
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.
