Tergo™ Metal Cleaning Fluid

Tergo MCF (Metal Cleaning fluid) is an effective, sustainable cleaner with a low global warming potential


  • Used in the aerospace, automotive, medical, oil exploration and industrial sectors
  • Use as a metal cleaner or a flux remover
  • Removes hardened greases, oils, caramelized flux residues, rosins, fingerprints and ionic contaminants
  • Cleans the widest variety of metal alloys
  • An excellent replacement for HCFCs, nPB, perc and TCE.


  • Fast drying has a low boiling point for maximum throughput in a vapor degreaser – cleaned parts are processed and used immediately
  • High soil loading capacity to reduce downtime associated with fluid change-outs
  • An azeotrope, for maximum stability and easy recycling
  • Handles a greater concentration of dissolved water without using alcohol additives or desiccants
  • Ideal for use with ultrasonics to overcome gravitational and intermolecular forces which bind particulates to substrates
  • Maintenance free – eliminates the need for acid acceptance testing and scavengers
  • Specifically engineered for fast, consistent and economical cleaning in vapor degreasers
  • Drop-in replacement – requires minor or no modifications to existing vapor degreasers
  • With a low surface tension, low viscosity and high density, it cleans great inside tight, complex spaces
  • Very good materials compatibility
  • Nonflammable for facility safety
  • Almost no aroma for happier workers
  • Requires no surfactants and unlike aqueous cleaning, removes extra washing steps to get residue-free parts
  • Tergo Metal Cleaning Fluid is hostile to pyrogens
  • Thermally and chemically stable for long fluid life
  • Very good toxicity rating for worker and environmental safety
  • Recyclable inside a vapor degreaser –  reduces cost of ownership and environmental footprint
  • Chemical Family: HFO
  • kB Value: 108 – strong
  • PEL:
  • ODP: 0
  • GWP: Low
  • Not a HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutant)
  • RoHS, REACH,F-GAS and WEEE compliant
