Star Electro Solve

Star ELECTRO SOLVE is a solvent cleaner specifically formulated for use on electric and electronic components where the use of traditional chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents is restricted for toxicity or operational reasons.

Star ELECTRO SOLVE is a solvent cleaner specifically formulated for use on electric and electronic components where the use of traditional chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents is restricted for toxicity or operational reasons.

Star ELECTRO SOLVE is highly refined non aromatic solvent cleaner specifically formulated for use on electric and electronic components where the use of traditional chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents is restricted for toxicity or operational reasons. Star ELECTRO SOLVE may also be used as a degreaser for metals, plastics and painted surfaces including chlorinated rubber finishes.

Applications

Star ELECTRO SOLVE was originally developed for use on electronic and electric components, where restricted space and associated toxicity prohibited the use of chlorinated hydrocarbons for cleaning and degreasing. Star ELECTRO SOLVE may also be used for the removal of hydraulic oils and other soiling on a wide range of hard surfaces. Star ELECTRO SOLVE has no detrimental effect on:-

  • Magnesium AZ31B Stainless steel 316L
  • Mild steel BS1449 
  • Titanium ZA46 
  • Aluminium L156 Cadmium plated steel 
  • Acrylic paint Polyurethane paint 
  • Stress multiply plastic Stressed plastic canopy

 

Star ELECTRO SOLVE has been used widely as a replacement tor 111 Trichloroethane in general cleaning, particularly where large components are involved and solvent vapour production may be harmful. Star ELECTRO SOLVE is not designed to be used via vapour degreasing systems. Star ELECTRO SOLVE may be used on both steel and aluminium surfaces prior to painting. Adhesion of etch primers is not affected. Star ELECTRO SOLVE is not aggressive to Viton or neoprene rubber.

 

Use at normal ambient temperatures. Test surface prior to large scale application. Use as supplied without dilution. Apply by brush spray or dip tank to article to be cleaned. Agitate stubborn deposits with soft brush before allowing to dry naturally or with air assistance. Most operations with Star ELECTRO SOLVE are carried out at normal ambient temperatures; however, sometimes an increased evaporation rate by using warm air or higher operating temperatures is employed. Star ELECTRO SOLVE can also be used very efficiently in ultrasonic tank systems where capitation caused by ultrasonic’ s provides for a rapid and thorough degreasing and cleaning operation. At 22oc the evaporation rate of Star ELECTRO SOLVE is 9g/m2/hr. which may be increased to 45g/m2/hr. at 40oc. This latter temperature represents a practical upper operating temperature limit being sufficiently below the flash point to give an adequate safety margin both from flammability aspects or explosive risks. Vapour extraction is recommended when using warm Star ELECTRO SOLVE.

Use PVC gloves when handling. Do not smoke. Do not spray near naked flames or sources of ignition.
