Product Data Sheet Safety Data Sheet Safety Data Sheet (Aerosol)

POSITRON embodies a series of important improvements over hydrocarbon/terpene blends previously used to replace 1,1,1 trichloroethane and CFC-113. POSITRON dries more rapidly and completely than any other terpene-based solvent available today. Thanks to the use of a patented distillation methodology, this material has very low odor.

POSITRON contains no oxidizers, and will not cause moisture condensation problems since it does not evaporate too rapidly. Unlike other electrical solvents,POSITRON is non-toxic, (see MSDS).


  • Non-toxic
  • Lower odor
  • Faster dry-time
  • More aggressive
  • Ultra-low residue
  • Safe & easy to use
  • No hazardous fumes
  • High dielectric strength, (ASTM D-877 test procedures to 48,000 volts.)
  • No SARA or RCRA listed ingredients

For use by customers seeking a high-performance environmentally preferred alternative. POSITRON is used for a variety of electrical cleaning tasks. Use POSITRON in place of chlorinated solvents for all types of electrical and mechanical cleaning.

Use undiluted. Spray or wipe POSITRON on surface to be cleaned; oil dirt and carbon will flow off surface. If additional cleaning is desired, wipe with rag or brush.
