MicroCare Offer Alternatives, Expertise for 3M Novec Replacement Vapor Degreasing Fluids

Reading time ( words)

MicroCare is proud to offer a wide range of excellent replacements for the 3M Novec specialty cleaning fluids. This comes in response to 3M's recent announcement that it will discontinue manufacturing all fluoropolymers, fluorinated fluids, and PFAS-based additive products by the end of 2025, including Novec 7100, 71DE, 7200, 72DE, 72DA, 73DE and others.

The MicroCare replacement fluids have similar, if not superior cleaning performance to the Novec™ fluids and can clean a wide variety of soils, including oil, grease, particulate, inks, fingerprints and more. They also have similar, if not identical compatibility profiles to help prevent damage to delicate materials. Many of the MicroCare fluids, including its signature Tergo™ MCF (Metal Cleaning Fluid) and Tergo™ GCF (General Cleaning Fluid) are azeotropes, making them chemically stable and nonflammable in both vacuum and vapor degreasers.

Importantly, the MicroCare vapor degreasing fluids are domestically formulated and produced in New Britain, CT. They are readily available, with plenty of capacity to ensure supply, for immediate global shipment without importing issues or delays. They also boast low GWP (Global Warming Potential) and zero ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential) ratings to help reduce greenhouse gas effects and meet strict regional air quality regulations.

In addition, MicroCare provides extensive, in-depth technical support, advice and training around the new fluids. Tom Tattersall, MicroCare CEO said, “Our MicroCare team of experts has over 360 years of combined critical cleaning experience. From our in-the-field technical specialists to our in-house chemists, we understand the dynamics between cleaning solvents, cleaning equipment and substrates and soils. We share our skill and knowledge with on-going troubleshooting to help users qualify and validate their new cleaning fluids with the least disruption to their cleaning process and budget.”
