This product is a Boeing-approved, stabilized n-propyl bromide-based solvent for the replacement of trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene and 1,1,1-trichloroethane in aerospace vapor degreasing.
EnSolv® 5408 is an aerospace cleaner that is listed as an approved material on Boeing’s commercial PSD 6-62 specification for use under BAC 5408 as well as Boeing military spec PS 12020 Rev Y. In addition, EnSolv® 5408 has been approved by other major aerospace organizations, such as Bell Helicopter, Bombardier and many others.
Additionally, EnSolv® 5408 meets Embraer’s, a Brazilian Aerospace Conglomerate, NE 40-012 Certification. This means after rigorous testing, EnSolv® 5408 is an approved solvent for their metallic parts cleaning.
EnSolv® 5408 is a patented, azeotropic mixture that can be distilled and reused through numerous cycles before it needs to be replaced. Although a stabilizer booster in 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums is available, the synergistic action of EnSolv® 5408’s patented stabilizer package typically precludes the need to ever add stabilizers to maintain the integrity of the solvent through normal use.
EnSolv® 5408 is the only Boeing-approved nPB solvent for vapor degreasing with a maximum boiling temperature above 160˚ F (max. boiling temp of 165˚ F). This higher limit provides an additional level of security, ensuring that the solvent in the vapor degreasing boil sump will never exceed the maximum temperature allowed in the spec due to the buildup of oils and contaminants.
