3M™ Novec™ 7100 fluid's convenient boiling point and excellent environmental, health and safety profile make it useful as a heat transfer fluid, cleaning solvent, for lubricant deposition and many more applications in a wide range of industries.
"3M™ Novec™ 7100 Engineered Fluid, methoxy-nonafluorobutane (C4F9OCH3), is a clear, colour less and low-odour fluid intended to replace ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) and compounds with high Global Warming Potential (GWP) in many applications. This proprietary fluid has zero Ozone Depletion Potential and other favourable environmental properties. It has one of the best toxicological profiles of CFC replacement materials, with a time-weighted average exposure guideline of 750 ppm (eight hour average). The high boiling point and low surface tension of Novec 7100 fluid make it ideal for use in vapour 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."
