Manufacturers of high-value medical devices require precision cleaning agents that are effective and environmentally friendly. To help meet these challenges, AGC has developed AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT, based on new HCFO chemistry. These cleaning solvents are categorized as non-hazardous air pollutants with an ozone depletion potential of near zero and a global warming potential of less than one.

AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT are ideal replacements for HFC solvents, low boiling point HCFO solvents, as well as n-propyl bromide (nPB or 1-BP) and trichloroethylene, which are both undergoing risk evaluation under the EPA’s Toxic Substances Control Act. These new HCFO solvents have an advantageous boiling point that enables low evaporation, which means less solvent is consumed during the cleaning process. They also provide superior solvency with Kb value of 44 and 118 respectively and a favorable HSE (Health, Safety, Environment) profile.

AGC will introduce AMOLEA AS-300 and AS-300AT cleaning solvents at MD&M East, booth 1350, December 7-9, at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
