LENIUM RV is a stabilized normal Propyl Bromide (n-PB) formulation specially designed to remove contaminants such as bituminous cement, oils, and greases. The fluid has physical properties and solvency characteristics that are similar to chlorinated solvents such as 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA) and trichloroethylene (TCE).

LENIUM RV is an ideal replacement for 1,1,1-trichloroethane, trichloroethylene, and methylene chloride used in tests for Asphalt Content Extraction (ASTM D2172), Recovery of Extracted Binder (Abson-ASTM D1856; Rotavapor ASTM D5404), or combined extraction and recovery methods (AASHTO T 319-031).

The physical and environmental properties of LENIUM RV are compared to other chlorinated solvents in Table 1.
