Solvent Cleaner Fluids - 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids Technology
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids strike an outstanding balance between all your precision cleaning needs and can be used in traditional vapour degreasing and immersion systems or they can be used in aerosol or hand wipe cleaning of industrial components, ranging from sophisticated electronics to precision mechanical assemblies.
Solvent Cleaner - Understanding Your Cleaning Fluid
Is Your Solvent Cleaner Targeted For Phase Out?
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids are ideal candidates to replace other solvent cleaners targeted for phase-out, including trichloroethylene, Methylene chloride and n-Propylbromide (nPb). 3M can help you understand the industries fast paced regulatory changes surrounding the use of ultrasonic cleaners and demonstrate how Novec can balance proven performance with an outstanding environmental and safety profile to help you find an alternative solution.
Is Your Solvent Cleaner Cost Effective?
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids can offer cost savings in a number of areas. Energy costs can be as much as double in aqueous cleaning applications and the evaporative loss of Novec fluids when used in vapour degreasing or a similar, recirculating system is lower than most other precision cleaning solvents. The low surface tension, low viscosity, high density and low heat of vaporization of Novec fluids result in reduced drag out losses compared to other cleaning solvents. Novec fluids drip away quickly, without becoming trapped in small spaces.
Is Your Solvent Cleaner Safe?
Whilst other solvent cleaners carry a number of carcinogenic risks as well as being classed as CMR's (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic or Reproductive Toxin) by the Solvent Emissions Directive and can also be highly flammable, Novec Cleaning fluids are not classed as CMR's, carry no risk phrases and are non flammable.
Want to Learn More About Ultrasonic Cleaners?
Are you confused by the legislation & restrictions surrounding Trichloroethylene or Methylene Chloride or HFC Solvents used in your ultrasonic cleaning? Are you concerned by the quantity of nPB you are consuming? Or are the huge volumes of water being consumed in your aqueous cleaning becoming a hidden cost? Take a look at our comparison overview.
Are you conducting ultrasonic cleaning for the first time? Want to understand how legislation around Trichloroethylene impacts on your equipment? Are you replacing your existing solvent with Novec but don't know if it can be used with your equipment? Let us help to guide you through.
Want to know more about the ultrasonic cleaning process? Let our video demonstrations guide you through a start to finish process and see the advantages of vapour degreasing cleaning systems over aqueous cleaning.
Traditional ultrasonic cleaning solvents such as Trichloroethylene and nPB carry a number of carcinogenic risk phrases and some are also classed as CMRs (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic or Reproductive Toxin). Let us help you understand the risks, their impacts and ways to overcome them.
