Opteon™ SF01 Specialty Fluid

A Strong and Environmentally Sustainable Vapor Degreasing Particle Remover

Opteon™ SF01 specialty fluid is an azeotrope that is ideally suited for vapor degreasing applications. It has a thinner boundary layer, which makes it effective at removing tiny particles in narrow spaces. Opteon™ SF01 is especially effective at targeting polar soils, and is used for a number of cleaning applications, including:

  • Absorption drying
  • Particulate removal
  • Co-solvent rinse
  • Light oil and grease removal
  • Ionics removal
  • Fingerprint removal from critical components

Features and Benefits

Opteon™ SF01 is a sustainable, hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) specialty fluid that delicately cleans critical components. It has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), low global warming potential (GWP), and low toxicity.

Opteon™ SF01 is selected by design and quality control engineers for particle cleaning and removal because it does not interact with or damage surfaces. It has high solvency for polar soils, and is compatible with a variety of materials. Because Opteon™ SF01 is an azeotrope, it also offers compositional stability during use.

It is commonly used in the cleaning of precision parts, including:

  • CMOS camera modules
  • Optical image stabilization (OIS)
  • Voice coil motors (VCM)
  • Optical sensors
  • Electrical sensors
