Tokuyama developed METACLENE as a solvent for cleaning metals. The product features excellent detergency and is nonflammable, highly stable, and economical to use. Owing to these properties, METACLENE is widely used in the machinery, automotive, and steel industries.
METACLENE is a solvent that removes processing oil, including rust-proofing oil and cutting oil from surfaces after metal processing.
・Incombustibility: Incombustible liquid
・Strong detergency: Powerful oil and fat content remover
・Quick drying: Allows efficient work due to quick drying with no stain remaining
・Excellent stability: Regarding other types of chlorinated solvents, a portion of the solvent occasionally decomposes depending on conditions of use, resulting in damaging metals which are washed surfaces and equipment. METACLENE, however, is very unlikely to cause such problems.
