Coventry Multi-Phase Carrier Solvent

Non ozone depleting carrier solvent and swelling agent

Coventry™ 12809 Multi-Phase Carrier Solvent is a saturated mixture of n-octane and perfluorocarbon (PFC). The n-octane provides solvency while the PFC provides an inert perfluorocarbon vapor blanket above the liquid mixture. These vapors act to impede the flammability of the n-octane. As the perfluorocarbon evaporates during use, the supplemental PFC moves into the saturated solution. Although 12809 shows no closed cup flash point up to its boiling point, the primary component, n-octane is flammable. Therefore, Coventry™ 12809 should be handled and shipped as a flammable solvent.

Coventry™ 12809 is used to replace CFCs, HCFCs, and flammable solvents as a carrier solvent for lubricants and coatings. It is especially effective as a silicone solvent and as a swelling agent for silicone fabricated parts.

  • High solubility of silicone and other lubricants
  • No ozone depleting chemicals
  • Low toxicity
  • Fast drying
  • Very low non-volatile residue
  • Maximum performance and safety

How do I figure out the shelf life of a product?

The shelf life of a product can be found on either the technical data sheet (TDS), available on the product page, or by looking on the certificate on conformance (COC). The COC can be downloaded by going to Once you have the shelf life, you will need to add it to the manufacture date for a use-by date. The manufacture date can be identified by the batch number. The batch code used on most of our products are manufacture dates in the Julian Date format. The format is YYDDD, where YY = year, DDD = day. For example, 19200 translates to the 200th day of 2019, or July 19, 2019. This webpage explains and provides charts to help interpret our batch numbers:
