Chlorinated solvents have found their use in many technological applications, some of which are shown here:
Methylene Chloride can be used for cleaning printed circuit boards that are used in all kind of electronic devices. It is also widely used in industrial coating removal to ensure proper processing of metal parts.
Trichloroethylene helps in the preparation of high-tech innovations such as flexible ceramic sheets.
Chloroform is used to manufacture high-tech fluoropolymers and fluororubbers for heat resistant insulation for wiring, and heat and corrosion resistant lining of pipes and reactors in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as waste disposal and recycling industry.
Last but definitely not least, chlorinated solvents are widely used as laboratory solvents for extractions, for quality control analyses in various industries, and in research & development laboratories to develop new substances and materials.
