3M™ NOVEC™ 1700
Conformal Coating

Ultrathin coating


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.
