Perchloroethylene (PER) is the benchmark cleaning agent for the dry cleaning of valuable garments. Today, 95% of such textiles are labeled with the care label for cleaning with PER. Within a Service Alliance of leading equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and responsible distributors, we are establishing THE NEW STANDARD, an offering for the safe and sustainable use of PER. THE NEW STANDARD encompasses products and services like the SAFE-TAINER™ system that applies a closed-loop solution based on DOWPER™ Pure Power to manage the well-researched product-specific risks. In addition, newly developed service elements help to extend the solvent’s life-time.
The latest innovation from Dow and SAFECHEM, which has been developed together with industry experts, is SENSENE, a solvent based for modified alcohols. SENSENE does not only mean excellent cleaning results, but is appealing to all senses: seeing, as the textiles keep their bright colours after cleaning, smelling, because the cleaned textiles smell fresh and pleasant, and touching as the textiles feel good and are easy to iron. At the same time SENSENE is appealing on the sense for business. The cleaning process performance is improved and the new solvent can be used easily in the cleaning machine. And last but not least using SENSENE means having a sense for the environment because the solvent is based on a responsible formulation.
