3M™ offers a revolutionary line of non-flammable spray cleaning solvents

Image of 3M™ Novec™ Aerosol Cleaners3M™ Novec™ Aerosol Cleaners are a revolutionary line of non-flammable spray cleaning solvents that combine effective cleaning performance with a wide margin of workplace safety and a favorable environmental profile. Based on a proprietary 3M solvent technology, Novec aerosol cleaners are low in toxicity, non-ozone-depleting, and contain no HCFCs, HFCs, nPB, or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Novec aerosol cleaners are non-corrosive and compatible with nearly all materials used in electronics manufacturing. They are available in five formulations for use in a wide range of maintenance, rework, and repair operations.

The five formulations are Contact Cleaner, Contact Cleaner/Lubricant, Contact Cleaner Plus, Electronic Degreaser, and Flux Remover.

3M Novec Contact Cleaner effectively removes light oils, greases, silicones, dust, and particulates from sensitive electrical and electronic equipment. It is compatible with plastics, is non-flammable, and is ideal for use on energized components. It is non-ozone-depleting and contains no HCFCs, HFCs, nPB, or HAPs. It meets MIL-PRF 29608A Class C specifications for electrical component cleaning compounds.

3M Novec Contact Cleaner/Lubricant is a non-flammable, non-conductive aerosol cleaner and lubricant designed for critical electrical cleaning challenges. Designed to help make the workplace safer, it complies with green initiatives, and cuts electrical cleaning challenges down to size. It quickly penetrates and flushes away light and fluorinated oils and greases from sensitive electrical and electronic equipment including avionics, electro-mechanical devices, electrical contacts, connectors, and switches. It also leaves a thin protective silicone coating to help prevent excessive wear and abrasion. It supports U.S. DOD initiatives to procure environmentally preferable products and meets MIL-PRF 29608A Class L specifications for electrical contact cleaning and lubricating compounds.

3M Novec Contact Cleaner Plus is formulated with extra cleaning power to remove stubborn oils, greases, and silicones, as well as fluorinated oils and greases, dust, and particulates from sensitive electrical and electronic equipment, including connectors, printed circuit boards, electro-mechanical devices, scales, relays, and circuit breakers. It is compatible with plastics.

3M Novec Electronic Degreaser is a strong non-flammable cleaner ideal for removal of heavy oils, greases, and handling soils from internal components of electronic equipment, precision devices, and other electro-mechanical or sensitive devices.

3M Novec Flux Remover is a strong, non-flammable cleaner ideal for removal of a wide variety of solder fluxes used in electronic manufacturing and repair including rosin-based and many no-clean and lead-free fluxes.
