3M™ Novec™ Electronic Grade Coatings

3M™ Novec™ Electronic Grade Coatings
3M offers a family of easy-to-apply, protective coatings designed to maintain optimal performance and reliability in a broad range of electronics applications, protecting sensitive components against soils, contaminants and moisture.

An attractive alternative to more traditional coatings, these clear, low viscosity solutions dry to thin, protective films over a variety of components and substrates. They are used in a wide range of protective applications – from adding moisture and corrosion protection to printed circuit boards and electronic components to providing easy-clean properties and smudge resistance to display screens.

3M™ Novec™ Electronic Grade Coatings protect against many forms of contamination that could impair product performance, reliability or appearance.

  • 3M™ Novec™ 1700 Electronic Grade Coating

    This coating is easy to apply and dries to a thin transparent film. The low surface energy film repels liquids such as lubricating oils, silicones and photoresist solutions used in the manufacturing of semiconductors. This coating requires no masking in most applications, and it air-dries in seconds.

    3M™ Novec™ 1702 Electronic Grade Coating

    This coating can be used in the disk drive, MEMS and TFT-LCD industries to provide anti-wetting, anti-stiction, anti-migration and anti-corrosion properties.

    3M™ Novec™ 1710 Electronic Grade Coating

    3M™ Novec™ 1710 Electronic Grade Coating is a higher solids version of Novec™ 1700. It is a clear, low viscosity, low surface tension solution of a 10 wt% fluorochemical acrylic polymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent.

    3M™ Novec™ 1720 Electronic Grade Coating

    3M™ Novec™ 1720 Electronic Grade Coating is designed for easy clean and anti-smudge capabilities on a variety of surfaces such as glass flat panel displays and mobile electronic device components. It is a clear, low viscosity, low surface tension solution of a 0.1 wt% fluorosilane polymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent. The coating dries to a thin, transparent, permanent film with excellent hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. It covalently bonds to glass and metal oxide layers and protects steel, aluminum, composites and a variety of other surfaces. The coating can air-dry in seconds and needs to be thermally post-cured for optimal performance.

    3M™ Novec™ 2702 Electronic Grade Coating

    A fluorochemical polymer coating carried in a nonflammable solvent, Novec coating EGC-2702 cures to a thin transparent film with excellent anti-wetting, anti-stiction, anti-migration, and anti-corrosion properties required in many diverse applications.

    3M™ Novec™ 2704 Electronic Grade Coating

    3M™ Novec™ 2704 Electronic Grade Coating is designed for the protection of printed circuit boards and electronic components. It is a clear, low viscosity solution of a 4 wt% fluoropolymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent. It is UV detectable.

    3M™ Novec™ 2708 Electronic Grade Coating

    3M™ Novec™ 2708 Electronic Grade Coating is designed for the protection of printed circuit boards and electronic components. It is a low viscosity solution of a 8 wt% fluorochemical acrylic polymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent. It is UV detectable.
