PPG INDUSTRIES, INC.

This company will be marketing trans 1,2 dichloroethylene under the trademarked name VersaTRANS. The company has taken steps to re-launch and ensure the availability of VersaTRANS solvent in neat or blended formulations for industries that are looking for a replacement for HCFC-14lb. The product has a shorter atmospheric lifetime relative to other applicable solvents, thus limiting exposure impact.
