Perchroloethylene is non-flammable solvent with a high degreasing power Also known as Tetrachloroethylene with the formula Cl2C=CCl2 is a colorless liquid widely used for dry cleaning of fabrics, hence it is sometimes called "dry-cleaning fluid." It has a sweet odor detectable by most people at a concentration of 1 part per million (1 ppm).
When perc is used in modern enclosed machines which incorporates a computer-controlled drying sensor, it automatically senses all traces of perc and ensures that only the smallest amount of perc fumes will be released when opening the door at the end of the cycle. Therefore, when used in the machine ensures minimal evaporation of perc residue in air. Therefore, garment drycleaning in perc machine is eco-friendly..
