Opteon™ SF30 Specialty Fluid

A Precision Cleaning Specialty Fluid for Demanding Applications

Opteon™ SF30 specialty fluid is a proprietary hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) fluid designed for use in highly demanding markets where failure is not an option, such as:

  • Aerospace and aircraft landing gear and other applications
  • Automotive sensors and electronics
  • Precision electronics
  • Scientific optic applications

This highly effective specialty fluid works well in a range of cleaning applications, including:

  • Precision cleaning
  • Vapor degreasing
  • Cold cleaning
  • Oil, grease, and silicone removal
  • Aerosol solvent
  • Particle removal

Features and Benefits

Opteon™ SF30 is a safe, nonflammable, and environmentally sustainable solvent with a low global warming potential (GWP) less than 10. It does not contain any fluorinated greenhouse gases. In many industrial applications, Opteon™ SF30 is an excellent alternative to:

  • Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and hydrofluoroether (HFE) based precision cleaning solvents
  • Methylene chloride
  • Perfluorocarbons (PFCs)
  • Aqueous cleaners

Designers and engineers prefer to use Opteon™ SF30 for their precision cleaning needs because it offers:

  • Superior cleaning performance with enhanced solvency power
  • Fast drying properties, which allow cleaned parts to be processed and used immediately
  • High soil loading capacity that boosts productivity by reducing equipment downtime associated with solvent change-outs
  • Compositional stability during use
  • No maintenance as it requires no stabilizer or extra steps
