Petroferm Inc. announced that Lenium GS Precision Solvent has been approved by Boeing per BAC 5408 Vapor Degreasing Specification (PSD 6-68).
Lenium GS is a high performance solvent cleaner designed to operate in open-top and vacuum vapour degreasing equipment. This solvent cleaner is a mixture based on n-propyl bromide (nPB) and fortified with a stabilizer package. Lenium GS is a drop-in replacement for trichloroethylene (TCE), HCFC-141b, HCFC-225, hydrofluoroethers (HFEs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perchloroethylene (PCE) and methylene Chloride (MeCl). According to Bill Breault, Aerospace Market Manager at Petroferm, “this approval will allow us to provide value across Boeing’s entire supply chain, by offering a drop-in replacement to chlorinated halogens such as TCE which is a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) and US EPA ruled carcinogen.”
Lenium GS is also approved by Bell Helicopter (Bulletin No: 1919), Praxair (ID# GDE 10055434) and Scott Aviation (SMP No. 7700009 Rev AP) for Cleaning Components.
