What is PCE?
P Tetrachloroethylene, often called PCE or PERC, is a solvent commonly used by dry cleaners, military installations and auto shops. It is colorless and evaporates easily. People exposed over long periods of time are thought to be at higher risk of cancer and of liver and kidney problems. You can be exposed by breathing it, drinking it or absorbing it through the skin.
