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 heat transfer applications:
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).
