3M Novec 7200 electronic fluoride solution Cas 163702-06-5

CAS Number

3M FC3283 electronic fluoride solution CAS 86508-42-1

3M™ Novec™ 7200 Engineered Fluid, ethoxy-nonaful orobutane (C4F9OC2H5), is a clear, colorless and low-odor
ful id intended to replace ozone-depleting substances (ODSs), compounds with high global warming potential
(GWP) and chlorinated materials in many applications. Its physical properties are compared with several other
ODS replacement ful id candidates in Tables 1 and 2.
This proprietary ful id has zero ozone depletion potential and other favorable environmental properties (see Table
2). It is low in toxicity, with a time-weighted average exposure guideline of 200 ppm (eight hour average).
Novec 7200 ful id has a higher boiling point than most CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs, reducing evaporative losses.
The low surface tension and low viscosity of Novec 7200 ful id make it ideal for use in vapor degreasing and cold
cleaning applications. In addition, its chemical and thermal stability, nonfal mmability and low toxicity make it
useful for other industrial applications such as specialty solvent and heat transfer applications (see below).

Vapor Pressure and Density

The variation of vapor pressure and density with temperature for 3M™ Novec™ 7200 Engineered Fluid can be
calculated using the following formulas:
Vapor Pressure: ln P = 22.289 - 3752.1 [1/(t+273)]
Density: D = 1.4811 - 0.0023026t
P = Vapor Pressure in Pascals
t = Temperature in °C
D = Density in g/ml

Materials Compatibility

Continuous Exposure

Novec 7200 ful id is compatible with most metals and hard polymers. Soft and elastomeric materials should be
limited to compounds that contain the least amount of extractable plasticizer. 3M technical service engineers
can suggest appropriate compounds and assist with material compatibility tests.

Non-Continuous Exposure

Short-term testing of Novec 7200 ful id demonstrates compatibility, after one hour exposure at boiling
temperature, with a wide range of metals, plastics and elastomers, similar to the performance of perful orinated
liquids. Good short-term compatibility with particularly sensitive plastics such as polycarbonate and PMMA
indicates utility in cleaning of assemblies containing many composite materials.
As with most ful orinated liquids, Novec 7200 ful id will absorb into ful orinated plastics and elastomers over
longer exposures.
