Vertrel XF specialty fluid is a proprietary hydrofluorocarbon fluid with zero ozone-depletion potential. Vertrel XF is ideally suited for use in vapor degreasing equipment for cleaning, rinsing, and drying, in addition to some specialty applications including use in co-solvent systems. Vertrel XF is used to replace current hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) and perfluorocarbon (PFC) fluids in most applications. Vertrel XF forms the base for most of the Vertrel product line.


Vertrel XF is widely used for the following applications:

  • Carrier Fluid/Lubricant Deposition Krytox/Fomblin lubricants
  • Drying/Rinsing Agent 
  • Heat Transfer Fluid 
  • High-Voltage Dielectrics 
  • Optics Cleaning 
  • Particulate/Ionic Removal 
  • Precision Cleaning

Compatibility and Soils

Vertrel XF is compatible with most plastics and elastomers. Vertrel can be used to clean a wide variety of soils including cutting oils, gear oils, heavy greases, hydraulic oils, stamping oils, vacuum oils, waxes, and mineral oils.

Environmental Properties

Vertrel XF has zero ozone-depletion potential. It is used extensively to replace CFC-113, methyl chloroform, hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and perfluorocarbons (PFCs) in several applications.

Vertrel XF has been accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program as a substitute for ozone-depleting substances. Vertrel XF (HFC 43-10mee) is exempt from classification as a volatile organic chemical (VOC) by the EPA. Vertrel XF is also VOC compliant under the California South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) regulations, which require VOC content less than 50 g/L of solvent. Vertrel XF is not a hazardous air pollutant (HAP) and is, therefore, not subject to NESHAP regulations. Vertrel XF is not included in the SARA Title III Section 313 list of toxic chemicals and is not subject to SARA Title III (EPCRA) reporting requirements.

The components of Vertrel XF are listed in the TSCA inventory. One component, HFC-43-10mee, is subject to the Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) and should be used only in the applications indicated in the Vertrel XF MSDS regulatory section.

Vertrel XF is listed in ASTM G93, "Standard Practice for Cleaning Methods and Cleanliness Levels for Material and Equipment Used in Oxygen-Enriched Environments." It evaporates quickly at room temperature making it easy to remove from narrow pipe, valves, and heat exchangers. It is excellent for "on the job" field use. In many instances, Vertrel XF will significantly increase cleaning process productivity when compared with aqueous cleaners. Vertrel XF is compatible with commonly used metallic and nonmetallic materials.

Flammability and Toxicity

Vertrel XF is nonflammable and does not become flammable during boiling or evaporation. It exhibits no open- or closed-cup flash point and is not classified as a flammable liquid by NFPA or DOT. It is thermally stable to 300°C (572°F) and does not oxidize or degrade during storage. Vertrel XF has passed the LOX impact test (NHB 8060.1).

Acute toxicity studies show that Vertrel XF has low toxicity. It is a slight skin and eye irritant and has low inhalation toxicity. For details of exposure limits please refer to the Vertrel XF brochure.
