Novec Solvent Replacements
Solvents for Vapor Degreasing, Ultrasonic Cleaning, and Manual Cleaning
Chemtronics has a large variety of cleaners for replacing 3M Novec solvents. Chemtronics offers proprietary formulas that meet stringent cleaning and purity requirements, but at a higher cleaning performance and lower cost. Tri-V branded solvents are engineered to be less toxic than many other solvents commonly used in vapor-degreasers: e.g., TCE (trichloroethylene), nPB (n-propyl bromide), and perc (perchloroethylene).
