CHLORINATED SOLVENT

An organic solvent containing chlorine atoms that is often used as aerosol spray container, in highway paint, and dry cleaning fluids.Chlorinated solvents consist of large families of chemical components that possess chlorine and other types of chemicals. These solvents are utilized for a great range of industrial and commercial purposes, which include resins, glues, pesticides, cleaning solutions, degreasers, and thinning solutions. Their chemical structure which contains chlorine aids them in reducing organic substances like grease and fat to provide raw materials or intermediates in the making of other chemicals. There are a variety of ways that workers can unintentionally be exposed to chlorinated solvents such as through skin contact or inhalation. While skin contact has led to many cases of workplace exposure, inhalation is by the most prevalent form due to the quick evaporation process of solvents.
