If you are in a field that uses industrial grade degreasers, polishes, abrasives, and production solvents, then you have probably heard of 142 solvent, and want to know what is 142 solvent used for. 142 solvent is a high purity chemical solvent mixture, with an extremely low polymer aromatic content, that is used for a wide variety of applications and industries. Chemical processing, metalworking, industrial degreasing, lubricating oils, oil drilling fluids, adhesives, and so much more require the use of 142 solvent. One of the biggest benefits of using Ecolink’s 142 solvent is that it has a flashpoint of 140 degrees Fahrenheit, without sacrificing solvent strength. Ecolink produces the strongest 142 solvent with a flash point of this grade, so it can be safely used for industrial applications, while reducing risk of combustion. 

What is 142 Solvent Used For in Industrial Practices?

  • Product Production – 142 solvent is used in the production of adhesives, degreasing agents, polishes, abrasives, lamp oils, pesticides, and paint thinners. 
  • Freeze Point Reduction – Solvent 142 has a lower crystallization temperature than other liquids like water, and can be used as a freeze point depressant to prevent icing and freezing. 
  • Industrial Process Fluids – 142 solvent is used both as a metal working fluid and oil field drilling fluid to aid in these industrial processes.
