Used in a broad range of industries/applications due to its multiple unique properties such as being clear, colorless, low odor, non-flammable, and advantageous boiling temperature. Intended to replace ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) and compounds with high global warming potential (GWP). Applications include lubricant carrier, drying agent, contact cleaner, and heat transfer fluid among others. Is a methoxy-nonafluorobutane. (b.p. 61C)
