    The vapor degreasing process is applicable to cleaning all of the common industrial metals: malleable, ductile, and gray cast iron; carbon and alloy steel; stainless steel; copper; brass; bronze; zinc; aluminum; magnesium; tin; lead; nickel; and titanium. Because the process cleans by solvent action rather than by chemical action, with proper solvent maintenance there is no danger of etching or other chemical attack on highly polished or delicate metal surfaces. It is also used to clean multimetallic parts or work loads containing parts of different metals. In addition to removing contaminants from metal, vapor degreasing has been employed for cleaning glass and those plastics which are not affected by the solvent.
