DuPont Vertrel Sion Specialty Cleaning Fluid Now Available in Canada

DuPont Fluorochemicals launched Vertrel Sion specialty cleaning fluid for use in Canada. DuPont Vertrel Sion was developed in response to worldwide market demand for safer, non-flammable and more sustainable products for industrial cleaning applications such as vapor degreasing. Today, the product is delivering a highly anticipated solution to more than 13 countries around the world.

DuPont Vertrel Sion is used in degreasing, defluxing, silicone removal and general solvent cleaning. This product has a solvency rating (KB value) greater than 100 and is used where maximum cleaning power is required. Vertrel Sion is ideal for replacing n-Propyl bromide (nPB or 1-bromopropane), and trichloroethylene (TCE), which have worker safety warnings, as well as an ideal replacement for HCFC-225 which has a regulatory phase-out.

In addition to excellent cleaning performance, Vertrel Sion can help users to minimize their environmental footprint because it is reusable, recyclable, and has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 15, which is significantly lower than many other solvents. Vertrel Sion can be used in existing equipment, requires no stabilizer maintenance for hassle-free use and its high solvency ensures that it can clean a broad range of soils and contaminants.
