Performance Fluids

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

The main physical properties 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 vaporization, low surface tension, and low viscosity
  • High density
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Non-corrosive
  • Low toxicity
  • Clear, colourless, and odourless

Applications:

  • Ideally suited for direct contact cooling
  • Excellent cleaning agents for removing particulates from precision manufactured components
  • Ideal for thermal shock testing electronic components
  • Safe and effective as clean flame inerting agents
