Zip-Chem® ZC-640 was specifically developed as an alternative to chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), chlorocarbons, alkalies, and petroleum solvents for precision metal cleaning in the automotive, aerospace, and general fabrication industries.

ZC-640 contains no chlorine and, therefore, does not contribute to atmospheric ozone depletion.

ZC-640 is biodegradable and has a very low toxicity level.

ZC-640 is also non-alkaline and eliminates hazards that are often associated with caustic cleaners.


ZC-640 is usually applied as a spray or hand wipe and is either wiped dry or blown dry with compressed air afterwards.

ZC-640 is also available in aerosol as D-5640NS.

Recommended applications for ZC-640 include:

  • Corrosion Inhibiting Compound Removal
  • Degreasing of Transmission Class Breakers
  • Pre-Cleaning Before Painting
  • General Equipment Degreasing
  • Handwipe Applications
  • Pressure Cleaner Applications
  • Parts Washers
  • Preclean Transformer Leaks Prior To Sealing
