This fully-fluorinated liquid is ideal for use in many single-phase heat transfer applications - especially in the semiconductor manufacturing industry - and is widely used in testing applications.
Listed below are
key applications for FC-40. Documents specific to the application
are listed to the right.
Heat Transfer Fluids
For heat transfer applications that
require a higher boiling point than 3M™ Fluorinert™ Electronic
Liquid FC-3283, Fluorinert liquid FC-40(155°C boiling point) is an ideal choice. It is
well-suited to a variety of heat transfer applications - especially
in the electronics industry.
The high dielectric strength and
wide liquid range of Fluorinert liquid FC-40 allows
its use in a variety of testing applications, including electronic
reliability, hermetic seal/gross leak, and thermal shock
seal/gross leak testing generally follows Military Standards
883-1014, 750-1071 and
202-112; FC-40 liquid conforms to these
standards. Thermal shock testing generally uses Military Standard
883-1011 specifications; FC-40 liquid
also conforms to these specifications.
