Although the range of solvent products is extensive, please find below the main solvents Hallmark Fraulo Ltd supply & stock to our customers:

Application

Solvent No.1 - Toluene-based solvent cleaner used extensively in surface preparation (i.e metals, rubber) prior to bonding with a range of adhesive systems including contacts, PUR's, etc. Can also be used to reduce the viscosity of contact adhesives. It is an aromatic-hydrocarbon solvent blend, highly flammable with a flash point of 4C.

Solvent No.4 - Acetone-based solvent cleaner used for preparation of many surfaces - less 'aggresive' on surfaces than toluene but otherwise effective in removing surface contaminants prior to bonding. Ideally suited for use on metal surfaces & oily hardwood surfaces (i.e, teaks, iroko) to remove residues. It is a ketonic blend, highly flammable & has a flash point between -18C to 0C.

Solvent No.6 - It is a ketone/chlorinated blend (dichloromethane/MEK) which is classed as non-flammable having a flash point above 32C.

Solvent No.9 - Dichloromethane-based solvent adhesive & cleaning agent.
