Provides up-to-date information on current technologies and practices in solvent substitution for those involved in handling, using or managing hazardous and toxic solvents, based on an international workshop held in 1990. Covers a wide range of solvent substitution activities: paint stripping, coating applications, printed circuit boards, metal cleaning, metal finishing, manufacturing, hardware and weapons production and maintenance, compliance monitoring, and process control monitoring.


For those involved in handling, using or managing hazardous and toxic solvents.
