A cleaning solvent composition that is made by either blending aliphatic fluorohydrocarbon as expressed by the general formula C.sub.n F.sub.m H.sub.2n+2-m (wherein, n and m are a positive integral numbers, being 4.ltoreq.n.ltoreq.6, 2n-3.ltoreq.m<2n+2 respectively) or blending a mixture of this aliphatic fluorohydrocarbon and alcohol having a carbon number of 1 to 4 with lactam and/or carboxylic acid amide, tertiary amines, or alcohol having ether linkage and/or amino linkage within its molecules. A cleaning process wherein an object is dipped into the said composition to remove dirty component, then rinsed with a mixture of the said aliphatic fluorohydrocarbon and the said alcohol having a carbon number of 1 to 4, and thereafter the object is steam cleaned with the said mixture when necessity arises. The use of the cleaning solvent composition, which does not destroy the ozone, is non-combustible, and shows an excellent cleaning effect, enables the object to be rinsed and steam cleaned in a nonaqueous system and allows the subsequent drying process to be simplified, and thus leads to a cleaned object free of residue and stains.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
