Perchloro ethylene

Perchloroethylene (or tetrachloroethene) is a chlorocarbon with the molecular formula of C2Cl4.  It is a colourless liquid with a sweet odour that is most commonly used as a dry cleaning product of fabrics.  This product is a non-flammable liquid, having no measurable flashpoint or flammable limits in air.  It is miscible with most organic solvents but only slightly miscible in water.

Perchloroethylene is predominantly used in the dry cleaning because it is non-flammable, stable but highly volatile.  It is safe to use on most textiles, fibres and dyes without causing damage.  It is highly effective at removing oils, greases and fats from textiles due its high boiling point and volatile nature.  A wide array of industries use perchloroethylene because it is excellent at degreasing metal parts during the production of products.  It can also be used in extracting fats, dissolving rubber, paint removal, water repellent, brake cleaning and a carrier solvent.
