Available from Stowlin Croftshaw, Bioact 105 is an aerospace-approved alternative for isopropyl alcohol (IPA), acetone, MEK and other low-flash point solvents, which offers fast dry times.

Bioact 105’s composition of aliphatic hydrocarbons, non-linear alcohols and high-purity terpenes allows it to quickly dissolve a variety of substances, including oils, greases, adhesives, lubricants, waxes and welding-flux residues.

Fast-evaporating solvents such as IPA are among the major sources of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, but Bioact 105 evaporates far more slowly under actual batch-cleaning conditions, reducing VOC emissions by as much as 86 per cent.

With manufacturers becoming more concerned about the flammability of IPA processes, test results show that Bioact 105 provides better cleaning at ambient temperatures, while remaining well below its 41C closed-cup flash point.

Under normal conditions, its vapours are not irritating to the eyes, skin or respiratory tract.

Bioact 105 has been tested and approved to meet the compatibility standards of the aerospace industry, meaning it is approved for use by Bell Helicopter, CFM, CE Aviation, Gulfstream Aerospace, International Aero Engines, Honeywell Aerospace, Pratt and Whitney, Rolls-Royce and United Airlines.

In addition, it conforms to ASTM F1110, F502, F519, F485, F483, F2111, D3941, D2879, D1901, D1613, B117 and G46.

It can be applied with a wipe cloth, by immersion (dip), by flooding and in most non-aqueous cleaning equipment.

Bioact 105 is available in fluid form or as pre-saturated, low-lint wipes.
