Description: Frank’s Funky Formula is a blend of nonflammable hydrofluoroethers and trans-1,2-dichloro- ethylene designed to maximize solvency. As an economically feasible option for vapor-degreasing solvents, Frank’s Funky Formula is a desirable choice with its exceptional performance and minimal environmental impact.
Substitution Opportunities: Frank’s Funky Formula is a drop-in replacement for trichloroethylene (TCE), n-propyl bromide (nPB), and Chemours VertrelTM SDG as well as a substitute for cleaners such as Asahi AK-225 (blend of HCFC-225 ca/cb) and HCFC-141b. By replacing these environmentally harmful chemicals with Frank’s Funky Formula, there is no concern for staying within the environmental restrictions of these chemicals.
Worker Safety: Frank’s Funky Formula is a vapor-degreasing solvent with excellent performance, is safe for workers to handle, and is environmentally friendly with properties including:
- No ozone depletion
- Low global warming potential
- Low toxicity
- High allowable exposure limit
- Chemically stable
- Superior cleaning performance due to high wetting index
Applications: The blending technology used to create Frank’s Funky Formula utilizes the chemical solvency of the fluid as well as physical properties like high density, low surface tension, and low viscosity for greatest performance. To clean metals in the shortest amount of time, the solvent must flow extremely close to the surface of the metal to remove contaminants. We engineered Frank’s Funky Formula by specifically blending the material to have a high wetting index. Field data provides a strong correlation between high wetting index and overall cleaning performance.
