Regulatory Benefits

Solstice PF is a sustainable replacement for current solvents, including nPB, HCFC-225, HFC-4310mee, HFC-365mfc and HFE-7100. It balances cleaning performance with safety and environmental requirements:

  • Nonflammable
  • VOC-exempt as determined by the U.S. EPA
  • Global warming potential (GWP) of 1*
  • Negligible ozone depletion
  • Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) of 800 ppm established by WEEL
  • Listed under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) as a suitable replacement in solvent applications

Due to regulatory pressure, the use of many solvents has been limited or eliminated. Users of industrial solvents are faced with finding a balance between effective cleaning and minimal environmental impact when seeking an alternative to HCFC-225.

 

Solstice PF is a fluorinated solvent that has been shown to have negligible ozone depletion and a GWP of 1, while not contributing to smog formation. If it is adopted across industries, its usage could save about 18 million metric tons per year of CO2 equivalent emissions.
