3M Novec 7100

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.

  • 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


  • 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


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