3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids degreasing solvents 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. They're characterized by excellent cleaning performance, zero ozone depletion potential, low global warming potential and low toxicity.
Degreasing Solvents - Making The Right Choice
Are Your Degreasing Solvents Targeted For Phase Out?
Choosing the right degreasing solvent to suit your application can be confusing due to the accelerated pace of changes in regulations and legislation surrounding their use. 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids are ideal candidates to replace other cleaning solvents targeted for phase-out, including trichloroethylene, Methylene chloride and n-Propylbromide (nPb) owing to an outstanding environmental and safety profile balanced with proven performance.
Are Your Degreasing Solvents Cost Effective?
Novec™ ultrasonic cleaning fluid can offer cost savings in a number of areas. There are fewer regulatory recordkeeping requirements and because they typically do not require costly abatement systems. Furthermore energy costs are lower than other alternatives, but the greatest cost savings are the result of reduced emissive and drag-out losses.
Is Your Degreasing Solvent Safe?
Whilst other degreasing solvents 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.
