Opteon™ SF10 Specialty Fluid

Multi-Purpose Specialty Fluid for New and Retrofit Applications

When global demand required a low environmental impact fluid for a range of applications, Chemours developed Opteon™ SF10 specialty fluid. It is a clear, colorless, nonflammable, thermally stable, hydrofluoroolefin- (HFO) based, fluorinated fluid. Opteon™ SF10 can be used for:

  • Single-phase heat transfer fluid for semiconductor manufacturing
  • Cleaning agent formulations
  • Brine coolant
  • Dielectric fluid
  • Aerosol formulation
  • Carrier fluid (coating agent) for fluorinated and other materials

Features and Benefits

Opteon™ SF10 has a boiling point of 110 °C (230 °F), broad operating temperature range (-80°C to 60°C / -112°F to 140°F), zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), and low global warming potential (GWP) of 2.5 over a 100-year time horizon.

Opteon™ SF10's low density guarantees more solvent for the same fill weight. This versatile fluid offers a number of benefits including:

  • Low viscosity that yields better flowability
  • Low dielectric constants that support direct cooling of energized equipment by immersion
  • A high exposure limit for worker safety
  • Nonflammable
