3M™ Novec™ 1700 Electronic Grade Coating is designed for moisture and corrosion protection of printed circuit boards and electronic components. It is a clear, low viscosity, low surface tension solution of a 2 wt% fluorochemical acrylic polymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent.
The coating dries to a thin, transparent, film with excellent hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. It repels oils, water, silicones and photoresist solutions. The coating is easy to apply (dip, spray or syringe dispensing), air-dries in seconds, requires little or no masking and is removable and repairable.
- Easy application and processing - dries in seconds without the need for thermal post-curing
- Requires little or no masking
- Allows solder-through repairability and is easily removed for rework & repair
- Contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and has low global warming potential
- Is thermally and electrically stable with excellent dielectric properties
- Provides excellent repellency, anti-wetting and anti-sticking properties against liquids, water, hydrocarbons, silicones, and photoresists
