Environmentally Preferred Dielectric Solvent

Product Data Sheet Safety Data Sheet

ELECTRON (A) Environmentally Preferred Dielectric Solvent is an exceptional solvent degreaser formulated without chlorinated solvents or other hazardous ingredients. The base for ELECTRON (A) is a unique high-grade oil distillate, which provides its dielectric strength, allowing it to be used safely on all types of electrical apparatus.

ELECTRON (A) Environmentally Preferred Dielectric Solvent is strong enough to remove grease, fuel oil, carbon and organic resins yet safe on most plastic and rubber surfaces. Unlike other solvents, ELECTRON (A) can be used without extensive protective equipment. Common sense chemical precautions are required.


  • Contains no water
  • Fully evaporative, leaves no residue
  • No hazardous ingredients as defined by the EPA.
  • No surface leakage of current in immediate residue tests
  • Contains no OSHA PEL or ACGIH TLV listed ingredients
  • High dielectric strength, (ASTM D-877 test procedures to 46,000 volts)

Use undiluted. Spray ELECTRON (A) on surface to be cleaned. Oil, dirt and carbon will flow off surface. If additional cleaning is required, wipe with rag or brush. Since ELECTRON (A) does not dry as rapidly as 1,1,1 trichloroethane, apply a light spray first, allow 5 minutes to work, then follow with a light spray as a rinse, which will push out the remaining soils. To speed evaporation, wipe with a dry cloth or use compressed air.
