Trichloroethylene was used as an industrial degreaser years ago, it was banned because it was highly carcinogenic. Now weaker derivatives are used, while they might still be referred to as trichloroethylene, it is not quite the same stuff, they have a similar make up and behave in the same way but do not cause cancer.
