Industrial-grade Tetrachloroethylene

Industrial-grade tetrachloroethylene (C₂Cl₄), also known as perchloroethylene or PCE, is a colorless liquid with a sweet, ether-like odor. This non-flammable, highly stable chemical is primarily used as a solvent in dry cleaning, degreasing of metals, and in the production of fluorinated compounds. Its high solvency power allows it to dissolve a wide range of organic materials, making it invaluable in industrial cleaning applications.
