Details
  • Designed for use in vapour degreasers and immersion cleaning
  • Cost-effective replacement for nPB, TCE, ozone-depleting HCFCs and high GWP HFCs
  • 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 vapour degreaser with stable bath composition during extended use
  • Non-flammable with an excellent safety profile
  • Environmentally sustainable with low global warming potential (GWP) and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
  • Faster cycle times, lower energy usage and improved cleaning of parts compared to aqueous cleaning

3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluid 73DE is designed for heavy-duty vapour degreasing, immersion cleaning, or lubricant deposition; featuring high solvency, low surface tension, non-flammability and fluid stability.

3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluid 73DE is a high performing, cost-effective replacement for n-propyl bromide (nPB or 1-bromopropane), trichloroethylene (TCE), ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) like HCFC-225 (Asahiklin AK-225) and HCFC-141b and high global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) for a wide range of cleaning applications. Vapour degreasing with 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluid 73DE can also help save you time and money over aqueous cleaning by offering faster cycle times, lower energy usage and improved cleaning of parts with complex geometries.
