DOWCLENE™ 1601 is a virgin, high-performance modified alcohol solvent with both non-polar and polar properties. Produced synthetically, it is specially formulated to meet the high requirements of precision parts cleaning in closed cleaning machines.

With DOWCLENE™ 1601, its non-polar and partially polar properties mean it can effectively remove non-polar contaminants as well as water-based contaminations in many situations. The extended applications of DOWCLENE™ 1601 make it a viable alternative to water-based cleaning processes.
The precise composition of DOWCLENE™ 1601 allows for stable distillation with higher recycling rates. In comparison to standard hydrocarbons which consist of changing and undefined formulations DOWCLENE™ 1601 has a stable flash point as well as a defined and narrow boiling range. This makes residue-free drying possible and enables outstanding cleaning results with high surface tension.
The water solubility of DOWCLENE™ 1601 does not only extend its cleaning capabilities, it also ensures a reliable and safer process: Polar acids are solved in water, and water is solved in DOWCLENE™ 1601. Measuring the acid content in a solvent sample taken from the cleaning machine can therefore provide representative information about the solvent condition. Where necessary, preventive stabilization is carried out to avoid solvent acidification which could otherwise result in machine challenges and related downtimes. Such corrective procedure will not be possible with completely non-polar, undefined standard hydrocarbons.
