23 February 2024

3M™ NOVEC™ 1700 is a clear, low viscosity, low surface tension solution of a fluorochemical acrylic polymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent. Designed by 3M for moisture and corrosion protection.

It has excellent hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. 3M™ NOVEC™ 1700 is removable and repairable and does not need post-curing, is nonflammable, low in toxicity, non-ozone depleting and RoHS compliant.



  • Easy application and processing – dries quickly without the need for thermal post-curing
  • Is easily removed for rework & repair
  • Allows solder-through repair
  • Contains VOC-exempt (U.S. EPA) solvent that has low global warming potential
  • Is thermally and electrically stable with excellent dielectric properties
  • Can be applied to metals, glass or epoxy laminates
  • Provides excellent repellency, antiwetting and anti-sticking properties against liquids – water, hydrocarbons, silicones, and photoresists
  • Is insoluble in solvents such as heptane, toluene and water
  • The polymer can endure up to 175°C for prolonged periods and maintain good repellency
  • Has low surface energy, which allows lubricating oils, silicones, photoresist solutions, etc. to bead and drain freely from coated surfaces.



Can be dipped, sprayed* or selectively deposited. Water should be kept out of coating bath as contact will interfere with coating deposition. Surfaces to be coated should be clean and dried before application. Masking may not be required for many connector types – but testing is suggested. The solvent will evaporate quickly and the fluoropolymer film will dry in minutes.

* Spray application is not recommended unless inhalation exposure is eliminated with engineering controls or PPE.

3M™ NOVEC™ 73DE was formulated by 3M primarily for vapor phase degreasing or immersion cleaning.

3M™ NOVEC™ 73DE effectively replaces n-propyl bromide (nPB or 1-bromopropane), trichloroethylene (TCE), ozone-damaging hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), such as HCFC-225 (Asahiklin AK-225) and HCFC-141b, and high global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) for a wide range of cleaning applications.

Vapor degreasing with 3M™ NOVEC™ 73DE fluid helps save time compared to water-based processes, offering faster cycle times, lower energy consumption, and improved cleaning of parts with complex geometries.



  • Useful in vapor-phase degreasers and for immersion cleaning
  • Excellent performance with high solvency and low surface tension
  • Effective in cleaning heavy greases, oils, waxes, silicones and non-polar flux residues
  • Easy to maintain and use in a vapor phase system with stable bath composition during prolonged use
  • Non-flammable and low toxicity for excellent safety profile
  • Low environmental impact: no GWP, no ODP and low VOC
  • Economical replacement of nPB, TCE, HCFCs
  • Faster cycle times, lower energy consumption, and better parts cleaning than dispersion cleaning
  • Effective for lubricant deposition applications where higher solvency is desired.



  • Cleaning solvent for vapor phase degreasing, immersion cleaning and spray cleaning
  • Solvent for heavy greases, oils, waxes, silicones and nonpolar flux residues
  • Lubricant deposition applications where higher solvency is desired.

3M™ NOVEC™ 71IPA, a product formulated by 3M, is an azeotropic mixture based on 3M™ NOVEC™ 7100 and isopropyl alcohol.

3M™ NOVEC™ 71IPA fluid is ideal for light cleaning and degreasing jobs and has a low toxicological profile, with a time-weighted average exposure guideline of 750 ppm for the 3M™ NOVEC™ 7100 component.

Due to its formulation, low surface tension and consistent stability during vapor phase use, the product is ideal for precision cleaning, removing particulates, fingerprints and light soiling from metal, plastic and glass parts.


Tests on 3M™ NOVEC™ 71IPA engineered fluid demonstrate compatibility with a wide range of metals, plastics and elastomers, similar to the performance of perfluorinated liquids.

Good compatibility with particularly sensitive plastics, such as polycarbonate and PMMA; also absorbs fluorinated in plastics and elastomers upon prolonged exposure.


Solvent for precision cleaning and drying:

  • Is ideal for cleaning dentures and dental implants
  • in combination with a co-solvent from the TOPKLEAN™ range is used for the removal of flux residues after soldering.
