KYZEN Offers Cleaning Alternatives in Anticipation of EPA Guideline Updates

Reading time ( words)

KYZEN, the global leader in innovative environmentally friendly cleaning chemistries prides themselves on putting customers first. Whether that is creating the highest quality products, providing top-notch accessibility and assistance, or maintaining an understanding of industry changes, KYZEN has you covered. They are  constantly focused on developing the best products and strategies to achieve customer cleaning goals.

A recent potential change that KYZEN has been working diligently to get ahead of is possible traditional solvent removals. In 2020, the EPA under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) issued “Risk Evaluation Reports” for several traditional degreasing solvents including TCE, nPB, Perc and MC. These reports indicated potential health risks to workers and recommended that action be taken to find replacements.

The new guidelines from the EPA are due in two years from official release dates meaning the time is happening now in 2022. They also must release a final ruling that may either restrict or ban the use of these solvents. The time is now to begin preparation and get ahead of these changes. KYZEN has done just that by offering customers alternatives for various industries such as vacuum degreasing alternatives, aqueous cleaning agents, industrial and electronics vapor degreasing alternatives.

Achieving design for test (DFT) can be challenging for both design and test groups, as sometimes both expect that the other will be the one to manage DFT. The design and test groups might be in the same organization, or they could be an OEM vs. an EMS company. It works best if both the design and test groups are engaged in the process of DFT and trying to achieve the goal of the best test coverage and lowest rate of field returns.

Why do we train and educate our employees?
