I think you meant to say "considering DOW is one of the manufacturers
of these chemicals".  They would be more apt to whitewash the "specs"
in a paper they publish on a chemical they want to sell.

I need to educate myself further, if possible, regarding Perc; in the
meantime, I won't go near it.  How can I ask my assistant, whose job
it is to clean the film, to take the risks for me and the client?
Only if I'm quite well-assured the "risk" is as low or lower than in the
past with Trichlor, will I consider cleaning film with it.

We have at least one Lipsner-Smith representative on the list here,
perhaps he'll chime in if he has information.
