Film Cleaning Solvent


Now is the time to take action and switch to a film cleaning solvent that is an excellent replacement cleaner for many of the current film cleaning solvents. From trichloroethylene (or TCE based solvents) which are known carcinogens (which GenTech-FC is not considered to be an IARC carcinogen) to FilmGuard (which leaves an oily residue which GenTech-FC does not), to HFE-8200 (very expensive which GenTech-FC is not), GenTech-FC solves a variety of issues that current cleaners leave behind.


A Quality Film Cleaner exists to replace trichloroethylene and other chlorinated / fluorinated solvents.

GenTech-FC is US Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program approved for solvent cleaning applications.

You can count on GenTech-FC Film Cleaning Solvent to be:

  1. Not an IARC carcinogen

  2. Non-ozone depleting

  3. Non-flammable

  4. Non-polarizing (anti-static)

  5. Non-residual

  6. Highly effective and powerful

GenTech-FC Film Cleaning Solvent is compatible with a wide array of film stock

GenTech-FC is gentle and compatible with a wide variety of film stock, from delicate archival film to nitrate film stock. GenTech-FC can be used effectively, due to its non-flammability, anti-static properties, and fast evaporation times. See the Plastic Compatibility Chart for additional information.

GenTech-FC cleans a variety of contaminants

From fingerprints to gearing oils, from dirt to dust, GenTech-FC will effectively clean and remove a variety of contaminants from your film without leaving any residue. GenTech-FC dries quickly and cleans powerfully. GenTech-FC will help to relax "curl" and "saggy bag syndrome".

GenTech-FC is a Direct Replacement Film Cleaning Solvent for TCE, PERC and HFE-8200

GenTech-FC is considered a direct replacement for TCE, PERC, methylene chloride, and alcohol. Use the GenTech-FC exactly the way you have been using your other film cleaning solvent. Additionally, GenTech-FC is an excellent, economical replacement for Novec HFE-8200, with all of the same performance, but a fraction of the cost.

Unlike more toxic solvents, GenTech-FC leaves no measurable residue or contaminants that can scratch your film or leave abrasions. It evaporates quickly so you don’t have to worry about winding up your film wet.
