Vertrel® SDG Degreaser

Vertrel® SDG Degreaser (“SDG”) is a new precision cleaning fluid optimized for the vapor degreasing of metal, glass, plastic and ceramic surfaces. A highly aggressive solvent, this new formulation has excellent solvency power and is an excellent choice for medical device makers because it is completely non-pyrogenic. It removes a wide range of soils including oils, greases, waxes and hydraulic fluids. The high solvency power, low surface tension, excellent wetting and nonflammable nature of Vertrel® SDG make it an ideal degreasing option for almost any medical device.

Vertrel® SDG is a nonflammable precision cleaning fluid based on HFC solvents combined with trans-1,2-dichloroethylene. Importantly, the global warming potential (GWP) for this product is roughly 90% lower than other choices because it uses a new molecule not available previously. It also can be used as a substitute for other cleaners such HCFC-225, HCFC-141b, HFEs, PFCs, CFCs, and aqueous cleaners when safety and environmental concerns and/or floor space and cleanliness are at a premium.

Other benefits include:

  • Excellent solvency (KB Value = 95) means superior cleaning performance
  • Good solvency for silicone fluids
  • Fast drying, high throughput, increased productivity
  • Low surface tension, able to penetrate and clean tight areas
  • Compatible with most plastics, elastomers and metals
  • Can be used with ultrasonics
  • Nonflammable for maximum safety
  • Low toxicity (better safety for workers)
  • Zero ozone depletion potential
  • Low global warming potential
  • Existing equipment can be used with minor or no modification
  • No surfactants; residue-free cleaning is the standard
