They are used in vapour degreasing and ultrasonic cleaning systems, or in aerosols or hand-wipes, and offer excellent performance and low toxicity, along with a strong environmental profile. Benefits include:
Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP)
Low Global Warming Potential (GWP)
Thermal and Chemical stability
Excellent dielectric properties
Low viscosity and surface tension
Wide range of boiling points
Good materials compatibility
They present a safer, more cost-effective alternative to more harmful degreasing solvents such as trichloroethylene (Trike), perchloroethylene (PERC) and n-propyl bromide (nPB) – and balance industry requirements for performance, safety and environmental protection. Typical uses include precision engineering; de-fluxing; wax and grease removal.
When used in combination with a co-solvent hydrocarbon Novec HFE’s offer truly outstanding cleaning performance in the most challenging of cleaning applications.
