Does MicroCare have 3M™ Novec™ Replacement Fluids?

MicroCare offers an extensive line of replacement fluids for 3M™ Novec™ Specialty Fluids. 

3M™ recently announced that it will discontinue manufacturing all fluoropolymers, fluorinated fluids, and PFAS-based additive products by the end of 2025. This includes their line of specialty fluids including Novec™ 7100, 71DE, 7200, 72DE, 72DA, 73DE and others.

For those currently using those specialty fluids, it's important to start planning a change-over to alternatives to the Novec Specialty Cleaning Fluids. MicroCare offers a number of excellent replacements for the 3M Novec Specialty Fluids including:

  • Functional replacement fluids for 3M Novec 7100
  • Alternatives to Novec 71DE
  • Novec 7200 replacements
  • Novec 72DA alternatives
  • Drop-In replacements for Novec 72DE 
  • Substitutes for 3M Novec 73DE

Our 3M Novec replacments have similar, if not superior cleaning performance to the Novec Specialty Fluids and clean a wide variety of soils including oil, grease, particles, inks, fingerprints and more. Additionally, our Novec replacements have similar, if not identical compatibility profiles to help prevent damage to delicate materials.

The MicroCare Novec replacement fluids also offer the following benefits. 

  • The Novec Speciality Fluid replacements are azeotropes, making them chemically stable in both vacuum and vapor degreasers
  • The alternatives to Novec cleaning fluids are nonflammable, making them safe to use, handle and store without special explosion-proof equipment
  • The drop-in Novec replacements are domestically formulated and produced in New Briatin, CT. They are readily available, with plenty of capacity to ensure supply, for immediate shipment without importing issues or long waits
  • The Novec alternative cleaning fluids 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
  • Novec replacements come with extensive MicroCare technical support with ongoing training and advice to make your transition to a Novec alternative fluid a healthy success for the planet, your workers and your bottom line

In most cases, the MicroCare Novec solvent replacements use your existing vapor degreaser. After emptying and cleaning your equipment, the replacement for the Novec fluid "drops in" to your degreaser without a major change to your cleaning process. That means you won’t have to re-train operators on an entirely new process.
