Polywater® Type FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner
A Fast-Drying Cleaner
for Electrical and General Industrial Use
- Fast Evaporating – Saves time and ensures moisture doesn’t compromise the splice.
- Multipurpose – One cleaning solvent for electrical installations.
- Compatible – Will not corrode or stain metal. Safe to use with most plastics.
- Variety of Packaging – To meet different end uses.
- Non-Conductive – Will not short across typical electrical voltages.
FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner is a fast-drying, multi-purpose industrial and maintenance cleaner. It is suitable for electrical and communication maintenance cleaning. It replaces ozone-depleting CFC’s, trichloroethane, trichloroethylene, HCFCs, perchloroethylene, and other carcinogenic chlorinated solvents. FD™ Cleaner effectively dissolves industrial grimes, greases, lubrication fluids, silicone, tars, adhesives, and fluxes.
FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner leaves no residue once dried. It is excellent for cleaning contacts, meters, communication radios, and cleaning medium voltage cable during the terminating process. For precision cleaning (residue-free use), prevent recontamination with existing grime by finishing with a fresh wipe, spraying until the solvent runs clear, or rinsing in a fresh bath of FD™ cleaner. FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner is fast evaporating and does not require forced air to dry. In areas where solvent has pooled, the part may be wiped with an absorbent, lint-free towel.
FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner will not corrode or stain metal parts. It does not tarnish or corrode copper per ASTM D130 and D1729. FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner is compatible with most plastics and elastomers. See the technical data sheet in sidebar for industry testing data.
FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner has a low level of toxicity. As with any solvent, ventilation should be sufficient to keep vapors at safe levels. FD™ Electrical Contact Cleaner is an extremely flammable liquid. It should not be used on energized equipment. FD™ should not be used for high-temperature cleaning or be exposed to pilot lights, flames or heated surfaces. Good industrial hygiene practices and appropriate precautions should be employed during use.
