Propyl bromide, also known as n-propyl bromide (nPB), is a cleaning solvent commonly used in industrial applications for degreasing, cleaning, and precision cleaning of machinery and electronic components. Stabilized, n-propyl bromide containing cleaning solvent compositions and a cleaning process are provided. The cleaning solvent compositions include an alcohol selected from 1-propanol and 2-butanol, including mixtures thereof, as a co-solvent so as to form azeotropic or azeotropic-like mixtures which have no fire or flash points.
It's important to note that while propyl bromide has been widely used, the industry is increasingly moving towards environmentally friendly alternatives to ensure cleaner and safer working practices. Users should adhere to safety guidelines and regulations while considering the environmental impact of the cleaning solvents used in industrial applications.
