I recently found an awesome product for degreasing my auto projects in preparation for paint. This is an Industrial Solvent which contains 100% Trichloroethylene (not to be confused with the toxic trichloroethane). It is not available for public sale in the United States due, in part, to the Montreal Protocol. You won’t find it on the shelf at any auto parts store. Review the wiki document for a lot more interesting info.
This Safety Solvent is far superior to the many degreasing products that I’ve used on my vehicles over many years (Gunk, Citrus based products, CRC ‘Lectra-Clean, Non-chlorinated Brake Cleaners, Walmart engine degreaser, Purple Power, Mean Green for example). My ’85 Golf will be painted in the near future so I’ve been using to give a thorough cleaning to the engine and undercarriage. I found this stuff on “clearance” at a local industrial chemical distributor I made a volume purchase (once I had purchased a couple cans to try out and discovered what it was). Aervoe list price for this stuff is over $12/can but only if you have a commercial account under which to purchase it.
Well, I ended up with a few cases more than I will use and thought I’d offer a good deal to forum participants here on the VW Vortex.
This is the offer: 6 large aerosol cans (20 oz each) of the best Industrial Degreaser and Electrical Solvent out there. Selling it in six can lots only. Shipping is free, to the lower 48 states.
The "NFP" stands for no flash point so it's much safer for electronics and electrical equipment. For example, my neighbor says it is the only product he can use safely to clean his pinball restoration projects. I've been using it to degrease the Golf in getting ready for paint. It removed all the leftover grease and grime that my “regular stuff” had not been able to penetrate.
