3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids and 3M™ Fluorinert™ Electronic Liquids are compatible with
a wide variety of materials used in heat transfer equipment. As with any design, selection of these
materials is very important. Our tech support can help you make the proper choice.
Most of the materials commonly considered “hard” plastics will perform well with both Novec
fluids and Fluorinert liquids.
Elastomers should be limited to those that are not heavily plasticized. 3M engineers can assist
you with recommendations and testing on specific compounds.
