Greater than 85 percent of the 35,000+ dry cleaners in the United States use PERC in their dry-cleaning process. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has identified PERC as a toxic contaminant. We invested in new, clean technology and now we dryclean our garments in a GREEN solvent called SolvonK4. This organic and bio-degradable solution has replaced the most commonly used solvent for dry cleaning, perchloroethylene (also known as PERC) in our plant. K4 is GREEN, organic, biodegradable, and safe for skin, air, and water.
SOLVONK4 has very different properties from conventional solvents in dry-cleaning. It is a halogen-free, organic solvent with a pureness of > 99 % and excellent cleaning performance. The innovative solvent is not only able to dissolve and absorb lipophilic (fats, greases and oil) but also hydrophilic soil (water soluble soil).
