3M™ Performance Fluids are perfluorocarbon liquids that have unique chemical and physical characteristics.

They are ideally suited for:

  • Direct contact cooling
  • Removing particulates from precision manufactured components
  • Thermal shock testing electronic components
  • Safe, effective, clean flame inserting agents

Their main physical properties, which are inherent to all perfluorocarbons, include:

  • Zero-ozone depletion potential (ODP)
  • Non-volatile organic compound (VOC)
  • Non-flammable
  • Chemical inertness, low solvency
  • Excellent material compatibility
  • Thermal stability
  • Long shelf life
  • Long heat of vaporisation, low surface tension, and low viscosity
  • High density
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Non-corrosive
  • Low toxicity
  • Clear, colourless and odourless
