Question Brake Cleaner - Do you use chlorinated or non-chlorinated?

What kind of Brake Cleaner do you use when cleaning your rotors (prior to install new disc brake pads)

Do you use chlorinated or non-chlorinated?

What is the difference between them? What's better to use?

Thanks!

They just use different solvents. Both are pretty good at cleaning rotors but(I'm sure the environmentalists will hate me for this ) I prefer the chlorinated. The chlorinated solvents work better on a wider variety of things. Also, they are nonflammable which is nice, the nonchlorinated ones are usually extremely flammable. They are usually a little nasty to work with though. But as a chemist I work with stuff like that all the time. Handle it with care and everything should be fine.

Ok cool, thanks ByronP. I will go with the Chlorinated Brake Cleaner then. Yeah nonflammable is better than flammable, I don't want to accidentally start a fire or something
