3M Novec Engineered Solvent Fluids @ Novaline
Novaline is a leading distributor agent for all 3M Novec Engineered Solvent Fluids in Australia, not only providing these specality solvent fluids but industry renound service and engineering.

Novec fluid HFE-7100 is used in a diverse range of industries. Its convenient boiling point and excellent environmental, health and safety profile make it useful in applications like heat transfer, cleaning, lubricant deposition and more. Its boiling point (61°C) and increased solvency make Novec fluid HFE-7100 an ideal cleaning solvent in applications like vapor degreasing, wet cleaning and FOUP cleaning. Low surface tension helps it to penetrate into tight spaces found in delicate electronic equipment - providing a thorough and complete clean. HFE-7100 is non-ozone depleting, is not a volatile organic compound (VOC) and is approved without restrictions under the US EPA's Significant New Alternatives Program (SNAP). Depending on the type of soil to be cleaned,Novec fluid HFE-7100 can be used "neat" or in combination with other solvents. The product is compatible with most metals,plastics and elastomers.

Vapour Degreasing

LENIUM® products provide current users of vapor degreasers with economical,
drop-in replacements of HCFCs, HFCs and chlorinated solvents.

Lenium® ES - is ideal for removing contaminants such as oils, greases, silicone fluids, adhesives,resins, waxes and flux residues from metal substrates. It is a direct replacement for 1,1,1-trichloroethane, HCFC-141b, HCFC-225 hydrofluorocarbons, methylene chlolride and Trichloroethane TCA and Trichloroethylene TCE in vapor degreasers.

Lenium® TS - is a solvent based silicone tube swelling product which has approvals in many products for USA Federal Drug Administration FDA rules

Lenium® GS - is a general purpose solvent specially formulated to remove contaminants such as oils, greases, adhesives, resins and flux residues. See news flash

Lenium® CP - used for light duty, precision cleaning of metal and plastic components. It is effective at cleaning silicone fluids, fluoriated contaminants, fingerprints and machining oils.

Dupont Specialty Fluids - Vertrel®
DuPont Vertrel® specialty fluids are a family of hydrofluorocarbon-based solvents with zero ozone depletion and low global warming potential, ideal in use in vapour degreasing equipment for cleaning, rinsing, drying and carrier-fluid applications. Unique physical properties include low boiling points and low heats of vaporization for low energy consumption and excellent solvent retention, low surface tension and low viscosity for effective wetting and soil removal, combined with nonflammability,chemical and thermal stability, low toxicity and ease of recovery by distillation and are formulated for a broad range of applications including multi-purpose use for scientific analysis.

Vertrel® XF is pure decafluoropentane and is the principal ingredient for the entire Vertrel® specialty fluid product line as well for application by itself. Specialized Applications Unique dielectric properties make DuPont Vertrel® XF an excellent choice for a variety of dielectric applications including transformer coolants and electrical protective
equipment testing. Specialized applications include:

  • Flip Chip Cleaning
  • FOUP Cleaning
  • Oil and Grease Wastewater Analysis
  • Aerosol Applications
  • High-Voltage Applications
  • Precision Drilling Applications

Vertrel® MCA is a binary azeotrope of 1,2, trans-dichloroethylene with Vertrel® XF and is suited for medium - to heavy-duty precision cleaning applications and other specialized applications. Light soil removal from solvent-sensitive substrates. Oxygen system cleaning. Cleanliness verification. Oil and grease, wastewater, analysis.

Vertrel® XM is the methanol azeotrope with Vertrel® XF and is suited for light cleaning and particulate removal chores.

Vertrel® XMS Plus is a blend that behaves like an azeotrope and is ideally suited for defluxing flip chip assemblies and other low standoff components.

Vertrel® X-DA is a displacement drying fluid for a non-evaporative process for spot-free water removal.

Vertrel® X-B3 is a blend of Vertrel® XF and butyl cellosolve for drilling of high-strength alloys, particularly in the aerospace industry.

Medical Tube Swelling @ Novaline
Tube swelling applications had traditionally been base of the non flammable the of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). But now, with CFCs banned and HCFC`s facing phase out of ozone depleting substances, an alternative non Flammable solvent is needed. Novaline can provide a range of suitable fluids for all applications. Novaline fluids can swell silicone tubing in a manner similar to CFC-113 without the corresponding environmental hazards. Additionally, Novline fluids are non-flammable, non-ozone-depleting, have low global warming potential and are very low in toxicity.
