Solving Problems with Chemicals


Safety Solvent : Non-Flammable Cleaner & Degreaser

Organic solvents have been using extensively in countless industrial cleaning processes for long time. Many solvents are very volatile and  having flash points that below room temperature, and are posing hazards of being highly flammable and causing explosion..  Some of the common solvents are listed below with flash point value for the purpose of comparison ( from low to high ) : Acetone ( -18°C ), Methyl Ethyl Ketone ( -9°C ), Hexane ( -7°C ), Ethyl Acetate ( -4°C ), Toluene ( 4°C ) , Methanol ( 11°C ), Isopropyl Alcohol ( 12°C ) to name a few. In United States, any solvent with flash point lower than 15°C can be considered extremely flammable.

The flammability  of a particular solvent is measured by determining its flash point.  The flash point of a  chemical ( solvent ) is the lowest temperature at which a flame can propagate through  the vapour of a combustible material to the liquid surface. The sources of ignition can be an open flame, heating element in hot plate, arcing motor and relay,  or even a steam pipe.
