Solvents & Degreasers
IKV manufacture a range of fluorinated fluids exempt from O.D.P. (Ozone Depletion Potential) which can be used as a solvent or carrier fluid for fluorinated lubricants, oils and greases.
Their properties are similar to those of other fluorocarbon solvents which are no longer in use due to their environmental impact. These non flammable, chemically stable and non explosive solvents have a relatively fast evaporation rate and leave surfaces perfectly dry following evaporation.
These products include IKV-SOLV XF and should be used for the cleaning of parts previously lubricated with fluorinated oils and greases to remove their presence.
We also manufacture effective biodegradable solvents including IKV-BIOSOLV 9150. It is is an alternative to petroleum solvents (xylene, white spirits) in all degreasing application.
Solvents & Degreasers
IKV-BIOSOLV 9150 is an effective solvent and is biodegradable. Standardized tests of biodegradability and ecotoxicity (in bacteria, fish, seaweed, shrimp) made the Solvent "organic" in 1999 and in 2000 revealed much better results than conventional products. For example, the results of biodegradability are 87.4% and 94.5% for these family of solvents.
IKV-BIOSOLV 9150 is less volatile than conventional solvents. It does not generate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that contribute to troposphere ozone formation which present a hazard to health. Industrial applications of bio solvent are growing, and especially for printing inks and for dilution of bitumen in construction applications. This bio-solvent used to meet current and future hygiene, safety and emissions of VOCs, which is a major advantage for manufacturers.
IKV-BIOSOLV 9150 as a degreasing solvent has a wide range of uses and is very effective on heavy soiled organic and mineral (grease, bitumen, adhesives, sealants, polymers...).
IKV-BIOSOLV 9150 is an alternative to petroleum solvents (xylene, white spirits) in all degreasing applications manual (cloth, brush, spray, and washers).
It includes :
- Excellent storage stability.
- A very good solvent power.
- A very good low temperature fluidity (no risk of freezing).
It is biodegradable, low inflammability, non-carcinogenic, non-toxic, nonreactive with other chemicals, non-irritating to the skin derived from plant sources.
IKV-SOLV XF & IKV-SOLV XRF are fluorinated fluids exempt from O.D.P. (Ozone Depletion Potential) which can be used as a solvent or carrier fluid for fluorinated lubricants, oils and greases. Their properties are similar to those of other fluorocarbon solvents which are no longer in use due to their environmental impact. This non flammable, chemically stable and non explosive solvent has a relatively fast evaporation rate and leaves surfaces perfectly dry following evaporation.
IKV-SOLV XF & IKV-SOLV XRF are suited for :
- the cleaning of glass, plastics, and metal parts
- the washing of electrical or electronic components
- the dispersion (for ease of application) of greases and oils especially fluorinated
- the cleaning of parts previously lubricated with fluorinated oils and greases to remove their presence.
Food Industry Solvents
IKV SOLVALIM-60 is a cold degreasing agent entirely exempt from aromatic and halogen compounds offering a good solvent power and evaporation rate adapted to most industrial applications with NSF K-1 approval (solvent cleaners – non-processing area products).
IKV-SOLVALIM 60 has the following properties:
- Practically odourless and not aggressive to the skin
- Meets requirements of the agricultural/stuffs, aeronautical and nuclear industries
- Has a very high dielectric strength
- Dries at ambient temperature without leaving any traces or residues
- Highly neutral to paints, varnishes and most elastomers
- Can be used on all industrial and manual processes
