Star Electrosolve is a 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 Electrosolve may also be used as a degreaser for metals, plastics and painted surfaces including chlorinated rubber finishes.
Star Electrosolve 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. It may also be used for the removal of hydraulic oils and other soiling on a wide range of hard surfaces. Star Electrosolve 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 Electrosolve has been used widely as a replacement for 111 trichloroethane in general cleaning, particularly where large components are involved and solvent vapour production may be harmful.
It is not designed to be used via vapour degreasing systems, but may be used on both steel and aluminium surfaces prior to painting. Adhesion of etch primers is not affected and Star Electrosolve is not aggressive to Viton or neoprene rubber.
