Data sheet>>


The 3M™ Novec™ 7100 Engineered Fluid is a methoxy-nonafluorobutane. It is colourless and odourless. The medium is non-flammable and non-conductive. Therefore, a very high operational safety is provided. With zero ozone depleting potential and a low global warming potential, the product is conserving the environment and is not subjected to the F-gas regulations.

Typical applications

  • Thermal management
  • Lubricant carrier (fluorocarbons, hydrocarbons, silicones, silicones)
  • Cleaning processes (combined method) for oils, greases, flux-free and flux spot-free drying
  • Special solvent
  • eco-friendly HCFC, CFC, HFC replacement


  • Global warming potential GWP = 297
  • Zero Ozone depletion potential ODP = 0
  • Non-flammable
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Very good heat transfer
  • Boiling point: 61°C
  • Low freeze point: -135°C
  • Thermally stabil up to 150°C
  • Chemically inert
  • Low toxicity at appropriate use

Thermal management fluids

The big temperature range between -135°C and +61°C where the Novec Engineered Fluid is liquid, makes this medium ideally suitable for thermal management applications in different industrial sectors, e.g. semiconductor, optical electrical and electronic industries, automotive electronics and for military use. The Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid has a zero ozone depletion potential and a low global warming potential. Therefore, it is eco-friendly and is not subjected to the F-gas regulation.

Cleaning fluids

The boiling point at 61°C and the excellent technical properties of the Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid are ideal for cleaning applications, e.g. vapour degreasing, liquid cleaning and FOUP cleaning. The fluid's low surface tension permits cleaning of the narrowest gaps and the smallest spaces being widely spread in electronic components and assemblies. The Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid guarantees a complete and thorough cleaning. Depending on the grade of contamination, the Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid can be used either in pure form, or with other solvents combined. The product is compatible with most plastics, metals and elastomers.

Carrier for lubricants and surface coating agents

The Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid's low viscosity and low surface tension guarantee good surface wettability and flow properties. HFC lubricants and high capacity lubricants, e.g. X-1P, can be solved in the fluid very well, transferred and separated homogenously on surfaces.

Carrier solvent for fingerprint formulation

Often used fingerprint formulations such as ninhydrin or DFO, contain environmentally incriminating substances like CFC's, HFC's, HCFC's and flammable solvents. The 3M™ Novec™ 7100 Engineered fluid is a highly efficient alternative with excellent environmental performance to replace these ingredients. The fluid's high wetting index ensures the best possible transmission of ninhydrin or DFO into the surface structure to make the amino acids stored there and fingerprints visible. The Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid is usable for for the most different sorts of ink, paper and similar materials providing a high quality of prints. A dilution of the ink is prevented and the evidence can be analysed very well. The medium permits a bigger number of fingerprints to be generated than possible with the same amount of common formulations. The use of the Novec 7100 Engineered Fluid guarantees a higher work safety for the fluid's low toxicity and non-flammability at appropriate use.
