This paper provides a practical, user-oriented understanding of the nature of non-aqueous cleaning solvents, and their uses in industry. While much of the information applies to industry in general, emphasis is on the use of these materials for cleaning stainless steel. Subjects covered include: chemical composition of solvent cleaners, including basic solvents as well as proprietary compositions; kinds of soils removable by non-aqueous cleaning solvents; methods of cleaning; hazards associated with use of solvent cleaners, such as flammability, toxicity; and safe handling procedures. A discussion of ASTM Committee D-26 on Halogenated Organic Solvents activity is included.
