Modern fluorinated aerosols and solvents are designed to help customers lower their carbon footprint without sacrificing end product performance.
With non-flammable and low-global warming potential (GWP) options available, today’s fluorinated aerosols offer a win-win for both aerosol fillers and the environment, with exceptional performance in the areas that matter most. Meeting the latest environmental regulations globally, fluorinated aerosols bring the best in safety, effectiveness and convenience and are the environmentally-preferable choice for your products and customers.
As far as metered dose inhalers (MDIs) are concerned, other technical and pharmaceutical aspects have to be taken into consideration. (see section on Safety Products).
Fluorinated solvents are proven to clean as well or better than other non-fluorinated alternatives. Fluorinated solvents offer exceptional cleaning power, and can satisfy your long-term environmental and safety requirements at the same time. Many are non-flammable, have low GWPs and low occupational exposure limits (OELs). Some are also exempt from volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations, as determined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). With many other solvents being phased out due to safety regulations, you can rely on environmentally preferable fluorinated solvents for years to come.
A number of fluorinated products are listed for aerosol and solvent applications under its Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP). Many are also registered under REACH in Europe, and meet other regulations in countries around the world.
