MAXISTAB AA Stabilizer For NEU-TRI Solvent
MAXISTAB™ AA stabilizer is a specially blended formulation of stabilizers for use with NEU-TRI™ solvent. NEU-TRI solvent is a vapor degreasing grade of Trichloroethylene. During use, vapor degreasing solvents are subjected to numerous environmental stresses which can lead to solvent breakdown and acidic conditions. Stabilizers are added to vapor degreasing grades of chlorinated solvents to neutralize acidic conditions and allow the solvent to continue to function properly. In low emission degreasing systems, stabilizers are depleted faster than they are replenished by the addition of fresh solvent. MAXISTAB AA stabilizer for NEU-TRI solvent can be used to restabilize the solvent in these systems.

MAXISTAB AA stabilizer for NEU-TRI solvent is available in 55 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails. To order, call: 1-800-232-2436, ext. 1348 or 1352, or contact your Dow representative.
Acid Acceptance Adjustment for NEU-TRI Solvent
Using the information from the Acid Acceptance Test, and the volume of solvent in the degreaser system, find the appropriate amount of MAXISTAB AA stabilizer for NEU-TRI solvent to add to the system. (See Chart 1 below.)
MAXISTAB should be added to the solvent reservoir so that it is quickly mixed into the solvent and will be rapidly distributed throughout the system.
After making the addition, allow the solvent to mix throughout the system, then retest the acid acceptance levels.
Acid Acceptance Levels
The optimal operating range for acid acceptance values of NEU-TRI solvent should be between 0.10 and 0.30.
MAXISTAB AA stabilizer has been specially designed for acid acceptance adjustments of NEU-TRI solvent.
