Substitution of CFC in release agents; Substitution af CFC i slipmidler

Technical Report:

Abstract

A working party, ultimately under the Danish Ministry of the Environment, has investigated the substitution of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) in slip agents in connection with gasoline mixtures, refrigerators etc. and the aims and results of this investigation are here presented in detail. The feasibility of microemulsions, where water and carbon dioxide as extinguishing agents are built into pure organic solvent blends intended for slip agents, were examined as these are not inflammable. Flash-point determinations were carried out. Addition of 1,1-dichloro-1-fluoro ethane to the microemulsions was advantageous. The CFC materials used previously can be substituted with solvents but these have slower drying rates and have a flash point of over 55 degrees centigrade. Carbon dioxide can be sprayed under high pressure, allowing a reduction of solvent normally used and eliminating fire risk, but this is not economically feasible. It is claimed that the consumption of CFC used to produce slip agents has been reduced to zero since April 1993, due to statutory order and the work described in the report. (AB) (31 refs.)
