Details

Highlights
  • Fluorinated nitrile designed to be a lower GWP alternative to sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆)
  • Non-flammable
  • High dielectric strength
  • Wide safety margin for workers when used as designed for intended applications
  • Lower Global Warming Potential (GWP)
  • Zero ozone depletion potential

3M™ Novec™ Insulating Gas 4710 is a sustainable alternative to sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆) for electrical equipment insulation and arc quenching applications. It offers excellent dielectric properties, a wide range of operating temperatures and significant reductions in environmental impacts compared to SF₆.

3M™ Novec™ Insulating Gas 4710 in pure form has a relative dielectric strength two times greater than SF₆ at a given pressure. This SF₆ alternative also has important environmental properties such as low global warming potential (GWP) when mixed with inert gases and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP). 3M™ Novec™ 4710 Insulating Gas is nonflammable and has a wide safety margin for workers when used as designed for intended applications. An effective liquid insulator.

Suggested applications
  • Versatile insulating gas for medium and high voltage applications including gas insulated lines, gas insulated switchgear and circuit breakers
  • Mix with inert gases for electric power industry applications
