Opteon™ SF80 Specialty Fluid

A New Generation of High-Performance Cleaning Solvents

Opteon™ SF80 is a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) based specialty fluid designed to meet the needs of the industrial cleaning market. It is a blend of proprietary fluorinated fluids and trans-1, 2-dichloroethylene (t-DCE) with azeotrope-like properties.

With high solvency and low surface tension, Opteon™ SF80 powerfully cleans a range of contaminants in diverse applications, including:

  • Oil and grease removal
  • Precision cleaning
  • High solvency defluxing
  • Silicone removal
  • Vapor degreasing
  • Cold cleaning

Features and Benefits

Opteon™ SF80 is safe and nonflammable. It is an environmentally sustainable fluid that has a negligible ozone depletion potential (ODP) and a low global warming potential (GWP) of <2.5. It also contains no fluorinated greenhouse gases.¹

For industrial cleaning applications, Opteon™ SF80 offers:

  • Fast drying: With an optimum boiling point (47 °C/117 °F), cleaned parts can be immediately processed and used
  • High solvency, with a Kauri–Butanol (KB) value of 99
  • High soil loading capacity: Boosts productivity by reducing equipment downtime associated with solvent change-outs
  • Easy replacement: Existing vapor degreasing equipment requires minor/no modifications for use
  • Surfactant-free cleaning: Removes extra washing steps to achieve residue-free clean

Opteon™ SF80 has greater cleaning power and higher solvency, making it an excellent replacement for other strong solvency fluids, including:

  • Trichloroethylene (TCE)
  • n-propyl bromide (nPB)
  • Benzene
  • Perchloroethylene
  • Methylene chloride
