3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Clean for Launch

    Cleaning is a critical process in the aerospace industry.  With highly sensitive equipment and electronic components, it is vital to use solvents that perform to the high standards that are expected.  Use 3M™ Novec™ and effectively remove particulate without harmful effects from other common solvent chemistries.

3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids are solvent solutions for the aircraft cleaning and provide; 

  • Excellent Material Compatibility 
  • Broad Solvency For Wide Range of Soil Types & Difficulties
  • Fast Drying Performance 
  • Outstanding Penetration for Tight Clearances
  • Non-flammable for Both Cleaning & Drying Processes

Novec™ Regulatory Status

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed Novec™ 7100 and 7200 Engineered Fluids and components of their azeotropes as "acceptable without restrictions" for precision cleaning applications under the Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP) Program. Novec™ 7100 and Novec™ 7200 have also been excluded from the EPA definition of VOC as they have negligible contribution to tropospheric ozone formation. 

Eliminate harmful solvent technologies and switch to Novec™ to decrease the impact on the environment and your workers.
