3M™ Novec™ 7100

  • Solvent for removal of light oils & particles / rinsing & spotless fast drying
  • Mono-solvent, Co-solvent, flushing & drying process
  • Very low HSE impact & very low surface tension

 

3M™ Novec™ 7100 Engineered Fluid, methoxy-nonafluorobutane (C4F9OCH3), is a clear, colorless and low-odor fluid intended to replace ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) and compounds with high global warming potential (GWP) in many applications.

The high boiling point and low surface tension of Novec 7100 fluid make it ideal for use in vapor degreasing applications as a neat (pure), azeotropic component or co-solvent parts cleaner. In addition, its chemical and thermal stability, non-flammability and low toxicity make it useful for many other industrial and specialty solvent applications.

Benefits

PERFORMANCE

  • Thermal and chemical stable in use (azeotropic formulation)
  • The very low surface tension allows deep rinsing of parts with complex geometry
  • Short rinsing and drying times

COST

  • Continuous recycling in equipment for a long bath-life
  • Can be returned for recycling and re-use
  • The relative high boiling point reduces risk of solvent drag, so limiting consumption

HSE

  • Very low toxicity (refer to the SDS)
  • No Ozon Depletion Potential (ODP) & low Global Warming Potential (GDP)
  • Non-flammable
