ACCEPTA 3540 is a very highly refined hydrocarbon solvent, free from aromatic species and intended to replace such commonplace materials as kerosene, white spirit and ozone depleting solvents in working environments.
ACCEPTA 3540 is also intended as a specialised replacement for 1,1,1 Trichloroethane and other chlorinated and fluoro-chlorinated solvents where the latter are scheduled for discontinuation under the Montreal Protocol. Guidance may be required in such applications since alterations to practice may be necessary in some cases.
ACCEPTA 3540 is intended to replace solvents like paraffin and mineral spirit which smell unpleasant and cause discomfort to workers. Its low evaporation losses make it ideal for dip or soak tank operations, manual degreasing and spray applications.
Where is ACCEPTA 3540 Used?
- Engineering and construction industries
- Textile manufacturing and processing
- Plastics and electronic industries
- Armed forces and public utilities
In all the above industries, the totally odour-free character of ACCEPTA 3540, coupled with its rapid evaporation rate, render it ideal for manual degreasing, spot cleaning and bench cleaning work involving spraying and wiping techniques. ACCEPTA 3540 may also be employed for degreasing electrical and electronic components either in situ or in dip tanks where vapour phase cleaning is impractical.
How to use
ACCEPTA 3540 should be used as supplied and, in most cases, at ambient temperature.
Some benefit may be gained by using ACCEPTA 3540 at slightly higher temperatures (up to 30°C or 35°C) where an additional softening of stubborn soils will offer advantage. Due regard should be paid to the combustibility and flash point of ACCEPTA 3540 in this context.
ACCEPTA 3540 may be used by spraying, brushing or wiping onto the subject surface and finishing with an absorbent lint-free cloth or disposable wiper.
- Moderate volatility – which approaches that of 111 Trichloroethane.
