Umicore Electrical Materials Eliminates Use of Perchloroethylene

Umicore Electrical Materials USA Inc. manufactures contact materials, including clad metals, tapes, buttons, absorber rods, and brazing materials for the electronics industry. The facility had been using a vacuum degreaser with the cleaning solvent perchloroethylene (PCE). EHS staff at the facility wanted to eliminate the use of PCE entirely. Umicore identified and purchased a new vacuum degreaser to be used with a new, modified alcohol-based cleaning solvent blend, Metalnox M6386.
