Polywater® Type RP Aerosol cleans busbars, transformer oils, stick adhesives, switchgear, meters, electric motors, breakers, contacts, and communications gear. It fills numerous general degreasing needs.  Polywater® RP evaporates quickly and leaves no residue.  It is an excellent cleaning solvent for a variety of different greases and oils.  Polywater® RP solvent has been tested on a number of plastics and rubbers for compatibility via ASTM standard test D543 (see technical data sheet on sidebar for details). Polywater® RP also meets IEEE 1493 “Guide for the Evaluation of Solvents Used for Cleaning Electrical Cables and Accessories.”

Perchloroethylene has replaced 1,1,1 trichlorethane in a number of electrical cleaners. However, “perc” is a hazardous solvent with a low TLV and a carcinogen classification.  Other replacement solvents may not be approved by cable manufacturers and can cause deleterious effects on rubbers and plastics. Review an up-to-date SDS on your present aerosol electrical cleaner to evaluate its safety and effectiveness.
