Details

Highlights
  • SF6 Replacement Gas
  • Ultra Low Global Warming Potential
  • Low toxicity
  • More reactive at melt temperatures then SF6, enabling lower use concentrations
  • Minimal equipment/process modifications needed

3M™ Novec™ Magnesium Protection Fluid 612 is an ideal replacement for sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), widely used as a “cover gas” to prevent molten magnesium from burning during casting processes.

3M™ Novec™ Magnesium Protection Fluid 612 has been demonstrated to provide excellent protection for molten magnesium at operating costs comparable to SF6. When used to replace SF6 in casting applications, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by more than 99%.

Suggested applications
  • Open casting of ingots, direct chill casting, sand casting or investment casting
  • High pressure die casting with hot or cold chamber melting furnaces
  • Preparation of alloys from pure magnesium or other alloys
  • Remelting of scrap from casting processes
