What will be the best and safe alternate to Mineral Spirits and TCE


Am looking for chemical which can replace mineral spiritsamazoninfo which is highly flammable. Also for replacement of Trichloroethylene. Appreciate if anyone can suggest alternate.

Hello Jayshree. Aqueous cleaning is often possible as an alternate, and n-propyl bromide is a good but expensive solvent for vapor degreasing. But there really is no such thing as a substitute for a chemical, only a substitute for a chemical in a specific application; please describe the application.
