Maintenance engineers and mechanics world-wide are at an unusually high risk of nerve damage from n-Hexane based cleaners and degreasers. n-Hexane is a solvent that damages nerves. Long term exposure to the chemical can lead to permanent numbness, tingling, weakness and reduced sensitivity. The effects of n-Hexane are most acute in peripheral areas such as feet, hands, legs and arms.

NSN 6850-66-163-6890 - 20Litre Drum
Purasolve Brake Cleaner is an ultra-safe, residue free cleaning solvent for brakes and other technical applications developed to replace highly toxic & explosive brake cleaners.
Purasolve Brake Cleaner is a technical solvent designed for cleaning brakes & components in a variety of industrial, automotive and avionic applications where a residue-free surface is required.
The product is an ultra-safe, low vapour pressure solvent developed to replace highly explosive brake cleaners. The product is a solvent substitution for Trichloroethone and Freon 113.
Purasolve Brake Cleaner's low evaporation rate increases product dwell time and improves cleaning results.
Purasolve Brake Cleaner does not contain:
- Ozone depleting substances
- Sulphonics or phenolics
- Glycol ethers
- Builders or reagents
Purasolve Brake Cleaner is available in:

Purasolve Brake Cleaner can be used for:
- Cleaning brakes and other automotive applications
- Avionic brake and component cleaning
- Cleaning motor’s, switches, relays and other electrical applications
- Replacing rapid evaporation solvents which require high volumes to allow dwell time
Method of Application:
Use sparingly, applying Purasolve Brake Cleaner neat with a cloth, brush or spray method. Apply the minimum amount of product to the component (enough to moisten but not soaking or dripping wet.)
Begin at one end of the part, cleaning in the usual manner.
For a quick-dry surface, air blast or wipe off with a dry rag. Remember Purasolve Brake Cleaner has a slower evaporation rate than more hazardous solvents.
Better Results, Safer Assets, Lower Cost
Effective & Cost Saving
Purasolve Brake Cleaner is slow evaporating, extending contact time, and resulting in a significant cost saving from a reduction in the volume of cleaning solvent used.
Because Purasolve Brake Cleaner is slow evaporating it does not leave residue, meaning the surface des not need to be re-cleaned.
Health, Safety and Environmental Benefits
Safe for You and Your Workers
Purasolve Brake Cleaner is free of chlorinated and halogenated solvents, improving user safety. It also contains no offensive odours, providing more pleasant working environments.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Purasolve Brake Cleaner has very low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions and less hazardous waste for disposal.
Enables New Applications
Great for Business
With low VOC levels and low vapour pressure product use is up to 20 times less than comparitive solvents without the dangers of highly toxic exposure. The slow evaporation also allows for extended contact time with the cleaning surface.

Case Studies & More
Tetrachloroethylene may be a chemical you’ve never heard of, but chances are pretty good that it’s a substance you’ve been in contact with. This is especially true if you use brake cleaner.

Choosing a traditional brake cleaner poses a rather unsatisfactory question. Do you choose the flammable highly toxic one, or the alarmingly very highly toxic one? It’s not such a nice question to consider and, of course, there is no good answer – or is there?
