Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a nonflammable, colorless liquid with a somewhat sweet odor and a sweet, burning taste. It is used mainly as a solvent to remove greaase from metal parts, but it is also an ingredient in adhesives, paint removers, typewriter correction fluids, and spot removers.
Use: In the manufacture of Dichloroacetyl chloride, bis(2,3,3,3-tetrachloropropyl) ether, hexachloroethane, Perchloroethylene and HFC-134a; in the degreasing of wool textiles; also used as solvent, extractant and emulsifier.
