Advanced solvent technology for precision cleaning, lubricant deposition, tube swelling - and more.
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids remain acceptable by regulatory agencies around the world as alternatives to HCFC-225 and HCFC-141b.
And, because they are non-flammable, low in toxicity and are generally recognised as sustainable replacements for those solvents targeted for phase‑out by international bodies, Novec fluids are ideal candidates to replace materials such as trichlorethylene (Trike), methylene chloride (dichloromethane) and n-propyl bromide (nPB).
Novec fluids are available in “neat” form – for light duty cleaning, tube swelling, deposition and other applications – and as azeotropes or blends of azeotropes, which offer higher solvency for more difficult-to-remove soils.
Novec fluids are also used as rinsing agents in conjunction with low volatility solvating agents.
This co-solvent cleaning process is effective for the removal of the most challenging soils, such as heavy oils, greases and waxes.
