General Information

Equipment-Cleaner TE1 (A-20-B5) is a water-based intelligent fluid® (IF), which can easily remove g-line, i-line, DUV-, BARC- or other resists, as well as PMMA and PI isolators from equipment, such as catch cups, resist and outlet tubes.

The Equipment-Cleaner TE1 with its highly dynamic phase structures works in two steps:● infiltration and fragmentation of the layer● wrapping and removal of fragments

The Equipment-Cleaner TE1 suitable for a variety of different surfaces, for  example steel, glass, ceramics, silicone and different plastic materials made of
polystyrene (PS) or polycarbonate (PC).


● not flammable (high flash point)
● no ATEX equipment necessary
● large application range
● longer durability of cleaning bath at constant viscosity
● pH neutral to the skin (pH: 5.5 – 6.5)
● no corrosion
● no etching
● no damage of fluoropolymer-substrates


Temperature range between 20 °C to 50 °C.

Soaking of catch cups or other parts in an IF-containing bath with vivid bath-agitation. The IF should not be diluted with water or alcohol! This will destroy its dynamic phase structures.

Soaking times from 1 to 8 hours. Afterwards put the equipment parts into a tempered container with fresh fluid.

Thoroughly rinse with water. Warm water accelerates the process.


Equipment-Cleaner TE1 has a shelf-life of not less than one year from the date of delivery. The intelligent fluid® should not be diluted, this destroys its dynamic phase structures and influences its properties. Optimal process conditions have to be determined individually. Contact our F&E-department for  recommendations.
