The chemical compound Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It is a clear non-flammable liquid with a sweet smell.

The chemical compound Trichloroethylene (C2HCl3) is a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It is a clear non-flammable liquid with a sweet smell. It should not be confused with the similar 1,1,1-trichloroethane, which is commonly known as chlorothene.

TCE is an effective solvent for a variety of organic compounds. It was first widely produced in the 1920s. Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) major use is to extract vegetable oils from plant materials such as soy, coconut, and palm. Other uses in the food industry included coffee decaffeination and the preparation of flavoring extracts from hops and spices.

During the post World War II period, Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) was inhalational anesthetic, thus replacing chloroform and ether but was itself replaced by halothane later.

We, at Innova Corporate provides Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) as raw materials for variety of products. It has its use in the dry cleaning as a solvent. Perhaps the greatest use of Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is degreasing the metal parts of a machine. More than 80% of Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is used as a solvent to remove grease from metal parts as well as used in adhesives, paint removers, typewriter correction fluids, and spot removers. It is also widely used in the manufacturing of range of fluorocarbon refrigents.

Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is a major compound used in almost all the manufacturing industries. We offer this valuable product at a profitable rate through sound economic decisions. The industries requiring trichloroethylene as a solvent are: Electroplating Industries for cold cleaning (process used to remove grease, wax and other impurities from metal and other parts) and vapor greasing solvents, Integrated Iron and Steel Manufacturing Industries, Machinery Manufacture and Repair, Pulp and Paper Manufacture for de-inking paper, 
Rubber Manufacture, Semiconductors for oxidation of wafers.

There are lot of advantages of Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) that it has a high boiling point (87°C) i.e. it does not burn easily. It is especially valuable because of its cleaning properties, low flammability and lack of measurable flash point.

Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is also used as chemical process intermediate in PVC production as a molecular weight control agent. High-purity grades of Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) are used as feedstock in the synthesis of refrigerant hydro fluorocarbon. In this process, Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) compound is destroyed to form new fluorinated compound.

Among the properties that have contributed to trichloroethylene’s wide acceptance as a metal cleaner and degreaser are the following:

High solvency 
Low flammability 
High stability
Low specific heat 
Low boiling point 
Low latent heat of vaporization 

Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is used as a solvent in some nonflammable adhesive and aerosol formulations, and as a low temperature heat-transfer medium.

However, it should be strictly noted that Trichloro Ethylene (TCE) is highly dangerous and toxic if swallowed or inhaled and can affect heart, liver, nervous system, and kidneys. It also causes severe skin irritation and irritation to eyes and respiratory tract (May cause Cancer). Please refer MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for more details.
