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 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).
