Unistar chemcial is a leading manufacturer of basic and intermediate chemicals for solvents ,foam blowing agent and refrigerant.
In addition to manufacturing the most advanced solvent, Unistar Chemical also devote to produce safer, more environmental friendly chemical solution across the entire manufacturing industry.
Trans-DCE is a direct replacement for n-PB and other traditional chlorinated and bromide solvents. EPA SNAP Approved trans-DCE as solvent in Aerosol, Electronic, Metal and Precision Cleaning and some of Foam Blowing Formulation.
Trans DCE is a next-generation chlorinated solvent that can be widely used in precision cleaning applications. Compared with traditional chlorinated and bromide solvents , trans DCE is much safer for human health and friendlier to environmental properties.
Pure Trans DCE is a flammable liquid with a flash point of 2°C (36°F). However, the azeotropic blends of Trans DCE manufactured by Unistar are nonflammable, maintaining a constant composition at the boiling point, the nonflammable characteristics are preserved throughout the use of the product.
Trans DCE manufactured by Unistar is short-lived in the atmosphere, because of this nature, it has very little impact on either stratospheric ozone or global climate change.
The commercialization and wide acception of trans DCE have greatly contributed to substantial reductions in the use and emissions of ozone depleting substances, compounds with high global warming potential and air toxins on the customers’ end.
Unlike other cleansing solvents such as methylene chloride, perchloroethylene or trichloroethylene, trans DCE is not regulated under 40 CFR Part 63 – Subpart T – National Emission Standards for Halogenated Solvent Cleaning.
Trans DCE is an definite advantage over other chlorinated solvents in its EHS properties. Its uniqueness generates a far more favorable regulatory landscape and makes it more sustainable choice for precision cleaning.
Trans DCE has also been reviewed and approved by the U.S. EPA Significant New Alternatives Policy Program (SNAP) as an acceptable substitute for ozone depleting substances.
