ProSolv®5408e high performance solvent cleaner for electronics and electrical components

Evolving legislation by governments worldwide has resulted in the need for new and original formulations to be offered for use in solvent cleaning and vapour degreasing processes. Companies must continue to comply with legislation for protection of the environment and safety of operators who may be exposed to harmful substances.  In applications where formulated blends of halogenated solvents have been used very effectively in the past, these are now required by changes in legislation to be phased out of use. 

EnviroTech Europe have been supplying vapour degreasing solvent formulations for over 20 years, constantly responding to increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for environmental and safety laws and the need for improved cleaning standards.  Our staff and distributors are trained to work with equipment suppliers to advise on the use of vapour degreasing solvents for the most satisfactory outcome.  

EnviroTech Europe have developed a new solvent cleaning formulation based on recent research, a replacement for the “old” technology, which has been found to perform just as effectively without the negative environmental, health and safety issues.

Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and very low Global Warming Potential (GWP) solvent cleaner for high performance vapour degreasing

ProSolv®5408e has been developed to provide superior critical cleaning performance for manufacturers of electronic and electrical components. High Solvency (KB Value 98) for removal of organic residues, compatible with organic and synthetic oils and most plastics and metals.

ProSolv®5408e is a high-performance solvent cleaner used for sustainable and future proof vapour degreasing.  Soft on the environment and safe for users, it offers improved cleaning at lower costs. Non-carcinogenic, low boiling point, economical with energy with low solvent losses, faster production, reduced costs, easy handling.

ProSolv®5408e ticks all the boxes and is the perfect profile for a modern vapour degreasing solvent. Exceptionally low surface tension to penetrate micron sized holes and close contact surfaces. Sustainable and secure for the future.

ProSolv®5408e BENEFITS


  • Fast precision cleaning with short cycle times.
  • Can be used in any vapour degreasing equipment, lower energy consumption and lower maintenance.
  • Ideal replacement for Trichloroethylene (TCE) and n-Propyl Bromide (nPB).
  • Stable with no additives, no testing required.
  • Improved productivity, parts exit the machine cool, dry and spot-free with no drying required.
  • Minimal non-volatile residue (>10ppm).
  • High density solution, excellent for ultrasonic cleaning.
  • Mid-range temperature operation, easier handling, mid-range boiling point, processed components easily handled (48°C).
  • Very low surface tension for penetration into the micron level crevices and holes, efficient cleaning in tight to reach places and complex geometries.
  • Easy process monitoring with minimal effort and minimal waste generation, easy reclamation for reuse.
  • High Solvency (KB Value 98) for a variety of contaminants.
  • Compatible with a broad range of substrates.
  • Compatibility with a wide range of sensitive components (some components or products are sensitive to the high pressures of water-based cleaning, the heat of washing and/or drying, or surface residues after drying).


  • Safe for the environment, zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).
  • Very low impact on Global Warming.
  • Non-hazardous for transportation.
  • Non-flammable (No Flash Point).
  • Not classified as a carcinogen.

Listed above are some of the benefits from using ProSolv®5408e, a sustainable vapour degreasing solvent for cleaning and defluxing in the electronics and electrical components industry and an economical and efficient replacement solution for vapour / vapour liquid cleaning systems using older legacy solvents, which are now either banned or being phased out. EnviroTech Europe have many years of experience and our experts are available to guide you through your solvent cleaner changeover procedures or to advise on equipment.
