AGC Chemicals Americas has introduced Amolea AT2, a new fluorinated precision cleaning solvent. This new solvent has excellent solvency with a wide variety of press oils, cutting oils, silicone oils , refrigerant oils, greases, asphalt pitches, and fluxes used in the electronics industry.
Amolea AT2 has no ozone depletion potential, has less global warming potential than our existing Asahiklin AE-3000 series products, is non-flammable, and is energy efficient due to its low latent heat of vaporization. Amelia AT2 will be marketed as an alternative to 3M Novec products, Chemours Vertrel offerings, n-propyl bromide and trichloroethylene.
