Powersolv

Powersolv was developed to meet utility standards and tested by NEETRAC to the proposed IEEE standard for cleaning solvents. Powersolv removes contaminants and anti-oxidation compounds from semi-conducting jackets and insulation on electrical cable before termination. Powersolv also removes carbon, grease, oil and other contaminants from almost any surface including electrical motors, contacts, switch gears, primary cable transformers and machinery. It is compatible with all polyethylene and EPR cable insulations, semi-conducting shields, EPDM, silicone rubber, splice and termination materials. This product is non-corrosive and may be used on rubber, metals and plastic. It dries quickly and completely with no residue. Use this versatile cleaner as a wipe on/wipe off, in parts washers or in tanks for immersion cleaning. Powersolv was designed as an alternative to chlorinated solvents. Powersolv contains no chlorinated solvents, CFCs, HCFCs, or other ozone-depleting compounds.
