Vertrel XE是由Vertrel XF(HFC-4310mee，十氟戊烷）和乙醇組成的共沸物。Vertrel XE的臭氧破壞潛值（ODS)為0，且溫室效應系數（GWP)比較低，適合蒸汽脫脂、漂洗和干燥。主要用于替代HCFC以及PFC等物質。
DuPont Vertrel XE specialty fluid is a proprietary azeotrope of Vertrel XF and ethanol. Vertrel XE has zero ozone-depletion potential and low global warming potential. It is ideally suited for use in vapor degreasing equipment for cleaning, rinsing, and drying, in addition to some specialty applications. It is used to replace current hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) and perfluorocarbon (PFC) fluids in most applications.

Vertrel XE has zero ozone-depletion potential and low global warming potential. It is used extensively to replace CFC-113, methyl chloroform, hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and perfluorocarbons (PFCs) in several applications.
Vertrel XE has been accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program, as a substitute for ozone-depleting substances. The ethanol component of the denatured alcohol used in Vertrel XE is considered a hazardous air pollutant (HAP) and, therefore, is subject to NESHAP regulation. Vertrel XE is not an RCRA characteristic or listed waste. However, contaminants could change that status. Ethanol is included in the SARA Title III Section 313 list of toxic chemicals, and is subject to SARA Title III (EPCRA) reporting requirements.
The components of Vertrel XE are listed in the TSCA inventory. One component, HFC-43-10mee, is subject to the Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) and should be used only in the applications indicated in the Vertrel E MSDS regulatory section.
Flammability and Toxicity
Vertrel XE exhibits no open- or closed-cup flash point, and is not classified as a flammable liquid by NFPA or DOT. In addition, the product has no vapor flammability limits in air.
Flash point data and limits of flammability in air provide the user with additional information that should be used as elements of a fire risk assessment and to determine guidelines for safe handling of volatile chemicals. Users should ensure compliance with NFPA standards and local fire codes.
Acute toxicity studies show that Vertrel XE has low toxicity. It can pose a slight skin and eye irritation and has low inhalation toxicity.
