3M NOVEC Solvent Replacements

On December 20, 2022, 3M announced their plans to phase-out their Novec PFAS-based product lines by the end of 2025:

“3M today announced it plans to exit per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) manufacturing and work to discontinue use of PFAS in its product portfolio by the end of 2025. This portfolio decision is based on careful consideration and a thorough evaluation of the external landscape, including multiple factors such as accelerating regulatory trends focused on reducing or eliminating the presence of PFAS in the environment and changing stakeholder expectations.” [1]

Techspray has a large variety of solvents for vapor degreasing under the brand names PWR-4™ and Precision-V™. For replacing 3M Novec solvents, they have some direct chemical crosses and additional options that fit the same criteria, but at a higher cleaning performance.
