High-precision cleaning is required across a wide range of sectors, including aerospace, defense, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, semiconductor / electronics, etc.
In this reference work, John Durkee provides a comprehensive guide to all the main materials and reagents involved in the cleaning of surfaces, providing key data alongside practical guidance on applications and techniques and advice about health and environmental aspects.
This handbook is a reference guide that covers all solvent types in industrial use for surface cleaning applications. Durkee's comprehensive coverage includes the cleaning solvents of the past (hydrocarbon), present (halogenated including fluorinated and iodated), and future (binary azeotropes and ionic liquids), including underused cleaning agents (e.g. oxygenated).
The spectrum of information included starts with synthesis methods, supplies the normal physical properties (e.g. surface tension), explains the current applications and potential uses, and provides thorough safety, environmental, and health information.
Engineers and scientists involved in precison cleaning across sectors including aerospace, defense, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical processing, semiconductor / electronics, etc.
