Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) Alternatives

Ask us how we can improve your process.

Isopropyl alcohol (CAS #67-63-0) is also referred to as IPA, isopropanol, and 2-propanol is going to be in short supply in the coming weeks or months because of the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic. That may leave companies using IPA for flux removal and industrial degreasing in a difficult supply situation.

Chemtronics alternatives are as effective if not more powerful, and in many cases have advantages like nonflammability and lower environmental impact. Please note these products do not have antiviral properties, so cannot be used to replace IPA for surface cleaning to kill COVID-19.
