3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids require little maintenance and offer dependable performance. They have high resistivity and will not damage electronic equipment or integrated circuits in the event of a leak or other failure. They exhibit excellent properties for a wide variety of heat transfer applications, such as electric vehicle battery cooling, Organic Rankine Cycle fluids, thermal testing and immersion cooling of electronics.


  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Wide range of boiling points
  • Good materials compatibility
  • Leaves no residue

They also offer favourable environmental and worker safety properties:

  • Low toxicity
  • Non flammability
  • Low Global Warming Potential (GWP)
  • Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP)

The chemical inertness and non-corrosive properties make them safe for workers to handle. They have been extensively tested to show they are non-irritating to the eyes and skin. They are rated non-hazardous.

3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids 7100 and 7200 have been approved for use without restriction under the U.S. EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP).
