Please see Accepta 3540 Hydrocarbon Based Solvent Cleaner


Accepta 3548 is a very highly refined odourless hydrocarbon-based solvent cleaner that is free from aromatic species.  It is scientifically formulated for use where odour, toxicology and taint are unacceptable and as a replacement for 1,1,1 Trichloroethane and other chlorinated and fluoro-chlorinated solvents.

NOTE: This product is no longer available. If you require an alternative product or technical assistance please contact us.

This specialised formulation has been developed to replace such commonplace materials as kerosene, white spirit and ozone depleting solvents for use in working environments where odour, toxicology and taint are unacceptable.

Technically advanced, Accepta 3548 is also intended as a specialised replacement for 1,1,1 Trichloroethane and other chlorinated and fluoro-chlorinated solvents, scheduled for discontinuation under the Montreal Protocol**.

The totally odour-free character of Accepta 3548, coupled with its low evaporation rate and vapour losses, are ideal for manual degreasing, spot cleaning and bench cleaning work using spraying and wiping techniques.

Accepta 3548 achieves superior results without softening or dulling  plastics or painted surfaces.

Safer and more economical, this is an ideal formula for degreasing electrical and electronic components either in situ or in dip tanks where vapour phase cleaning is impractical.

Accepta 3548 is a proven performer in a range of industries:

  • Food and beverage manufacturing plants
  • Engineering and construction industries
  • Textile manufacturing and processing
  • Plastics and electronic industries
  • Armed forces and public utilities
