the halogen-free solvent.

SOLVONK4 has very different properties from conventional solvents in dry-cleaning. It is a halogen-free, organic solvent with a pureness of > 99 % and excellent cleaning performance.

The innovative solvent is not only able to dissolve and absorb lipophilic (fats, greases and oil) but also hydrophilic soil (water soluble soil). Besides the excellent cleaning power of SOLVONK4 the cleaned textiles also have a pleasant and smooth feel. Noticeable is also minimized fiber abrasion during the cleaning process and also less creasing. In Europe SOLVONK4, similar to HCS respectively cyclosiloxane D5, underlies the VOC directive, in Germany implemented by the 31st Federal Emission Protection Ordinance (BImSchV). According to the current status of legislation in Europe SOLVONK4 is neither a hazardous material nor a hazardous substance! Even after the, as of December 2010, for materials valid CLP classification SOLVONK4 still does not require any hazardous labeling on the European market. SOLVONK4 is biodegradable and dermatologically tested with “Very Good“.

The named properties in combination with a very favorable classification within the framework of the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances are unique and have not been achieved in the past. The results of pre-market-tests demonstrate that SOLVONK4 has the potential of becoming a paradigm for dry-cleaning.

All advantages at a glance:

  • Halogen free.
  • Pureness > 99 %.
  • Excellent cleaning performance – effective against lipophilic AND hydrophilic soil.
  • Easy fi nish and pleasant feel.
  • Neither a hazardous material nor a hazardous substance in Europe (CLP).
