Abstract : The discovery of the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica and the global drop in stratospheric ozone has prompted the banning of CFC-113 and 1,1, 1-trichloroethane, which are common solvents used for degreasing and cleaning electronic components. The Royal Australian Navy uses these substances in a variety of applications and has initiated a replacement program. Two applications, cleaning baluns after lightning strikes and cleaning electrical motors have been selected as priorities under this program. This paper assesses the suitability of various solvents for these applications. Solvents, Solubility, Terpene blends, Chlorohydrocarbons, Hydrocarbon blends
