Applications

Tetrachloroethylene is used as a solvent. It is involved in dry cleaning as well as in degreasing of metal parts. It finds application as a neutrino detector. It is utilized as a paint stripper and as a spot remover in consumer products. It acts as a precursor for the manufacture of other chemicals. It plays an important role in water repellants, paint removers, printing inks, glues, sealants, polishes and lubricants. As a film-forming electrolyte additive, it is used in the manufacture of lithium ion batteries and is actively involved as an extraction solvent in the determination of oil and grease in water by FT-IR.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong bases, alkali metals and aluminum.
