Trichloroethylene is a solvent that has been widely used for vapor degreasing of metal parts. It is also used as an ingredient in adhesives, paint removers, typewriter correction fluid, spot removers, as an extractant and as a chemical intermediate. Trichloroethylene has been identified at various levels in the environment, particularly in groundwater.

EPA’s Office of Research and Development has developed a draft Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) Toxicological Review for TCE and has requested that the SAB conduct a peer review of its assessment.
