It's not a problem with the brake cleaners we get, they are alcohol.
I wouldn't have thought it was anything to do with the Argon, more
likely the trike decomposes when it gets a good hit of utraviolet.

Just read the Brake Cleaner info. One of my all time favorite cleaners was 1,1,1-Trichloroethane. It was Greeeeat. It used to be sold as Carb or brake cleaner and Welding Shield. Nope, it's no longer available.

Phosgene gas? Know what you get when you burn R-22? Yep Phosgene gas. It's some nasty stuff. I try not to put a torch on a HVAC system that has any gas in it but it happens from time to time. (I'm a Heating and Cooling Contractor.)
