Clean Safer with 3M™ NOVEC™

Eliminate Regulatory Concerns

There are countless solvent chemistries and technologies available today, but not all solvents are created equal in terms of safety and efficiency. It's time to upgrade from these harmful products to a safer, cleaner solution without losing performance with Novec™ 

With significant toxicity concerns on the use of the vapor degreasing solvents n-propyl bromide (nPB) and trichloroethylene (TCE) and a global phase-out of ozone depleting substances like hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), many engineers are seeking a safer, more sustainable alternative. Lead the charge and make the safer choice with 3M™ Novec™.

Why Use Novec™ 73DE?

Novec™ 73DE from 3M™ is a premium fluid engineered for use in immersion cleaning or vapor degreasing. This specially formulated product provides very high solvency, low delivered surface tension and is non-flammable. Novec™ 73DE offers an excellent solution to replace ozone depleting chemistries, harmful and toxic solvents and even aqueous based cleaning solutions as it offers faster cycle times, reduced energy consumption, and improved cleaning performance for complex parts & components.
By using 3M™ NOVEC™ to replace n-propyl bromide (NPB), TCE and HCFCS you can;   
Eliminate the Global Warming Contribution from HCFC's usage.
Decrease Exposure to Toxic Cleaners like nPB and TCE.
 Refuse to Contribute to Ozone Depletion
