Carrier Fluid and Lubricant Deposition

A Fast-Drying Carrier Fluid That Applies Lubrication Evenly

Specialty fluids are often used as carrier fluids to deposit fluorolubricants, silicones, coatings, adhesives, and other materials in smooth, even coatings on a variety of surfaces. Opteon™ specialty fluids are an optimal choice in industries such as medical device manufacturing, electronics, automotive, and others that require carrier fluids. Opteon™ carrier fluids are nonflammable, fast drying, and offer:

  • Solubility with various types of lubricants and adhesives
  • Low surface tension to effectively coat tight spaces and complex geometries
  • Smooth, uniform coatings on a substrate
  • Environmental sustainability with no ozone depletion potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP)

Features and Benefits

Opteon™ specialty fluids provide optimal performance, consistent quality, and the safety required for demanding industry applications. Opteon™ specialty fluids are ideal replacements for commonly used compounds in carrier fluid and lubricant deposition applications, including:

  • Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs)
  • Hydrofluoroethers (HFEs)
  • Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)

Opteon™ SF10 and SF33 carrier fluids are well-suited for depositing lubricants and adhesives on a substrate. Both are nonflammable, thermally stable, and environmentally sustainable.
