Industrial Silicones & Lubricants (ISL), one of the UK's leading distributors of high performance industrial chemicals, has enhanced its comprehensive portfolio with a new
range of zero ozone depleting potential (ODP) cleaning and drying solvents from DuPont.

Addressing the three major issues facing the integrity of the earth's atmosphere, namely
ozone depletion, global warming and smog formation from VOCs, Vertrel® solvents are
designed to meet the year 2001 deadline for the elimination of HCFCs. Vertrel high
performance cleaning and drying solvents offer effective replacement of CFC and HCFC
solvents and are ideal for use in a wide variety of cleaning, rinsing and drying processes in
the electrical and electronic industries. These include cleaning of hybrid circuits, relay
contacts and precision metal parts, defluxing, degreasing and cleaning high and low voltage
electrical systems and fibre optics.

Vertrel is a proprietary HFC (hydrofluorocarbon) fluid that can also be used as a carrier, heat
transfer and dielectric fluid. Key features include zero ODP, low global warming potential
(GWP), excellent toxicity profile, non-flammable (no flashpoint, no auto-ignition) and
excellent thermal, chemical and hydrolytic stability. In addition, Vertrel offers low surface
tension, low viscosity and high liquid density, high material compatibility with most metals,
plastics and elastomers and very low solubility for water.

Easily miscible with most common solvents, Vertrel high performance cleaning and drying
fluids are recommended for use in azeotrope-based systems although they are perfectly
suited for use in co-solvent processes in combination with a low volatility solvating agent.

Industrial Silicones and Lubricants (ISL) is one of the UK's leading distributors of high
performance industrial chemicals with more than 30 years experience serving the UK
industry. The company is a major distributor for Dow Corning engineering silicones and
Molykote® speciality lubricants and offers a complementary range of top quality products
