In your world, execution is everything. Machines need to run smoothly, components need to fit perfectly and electronics need to operate without a hitch. At 3M, our scientists have carefully formulated our revolutionary, non-flammable 3M™ Novec™ Aerosol Cleaners with the exact features and compatibility your business demands — without compromising worker safety or environmental protection. They’re the cleaners you need to help get the job done right, with no compromises.
Whether the task at hand is cleaning circuit boards, cleaning electrical contacts, relays and switches, solder cleaning, flux removal, degreasing or applying a contact lubricant, we have developed a Novec aerosol cleaner for the job. These cleaners make excellent replacements for high global warming potential (GWP) and toxic aerosol cleaners because they are fast-drying and have low toxicity and favourable environmental profiles – with low GWPs and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP).
Whether you’re working in electronics, aerospace, aviation, automotive or transportation, your aerosol cleaning needs are as precise as the objects you work with. Our 3M Novec Aerosol Cleaners were developed to help meet those needs.
Our scientists intentionally developed 3M Novec Aerosol Cleaners with high dielectric strength making them effective for use on energised components (less than 25 kV) and on a range of materials, including most plastics, metals, circuitry, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and more.
Achieve your precise cleaning goals by choosing the right aerosol cleaning strength. Gently and effectively clean everything from particulates and light oils to heavy greases and solder flux.
We have developed our Novec aerosols in collaboration with industry experts to meet the needs of electronics cleaning, electrical equipment cleaning, aviation, transport, factory equipment and anything requiring precise, complete cleaning.

3M Novec Aerosol Cleaners not only give you highly advanced cleaning technology, but they’re also flexible enough to meet new needs facing your business and adapt to changes to your future operations.
New environmental regulations mean you need to choose your aerosol cleaners carefully. Our excellent worker safety and environmental profiles makes 3M Novec Aerosol Cleaners an excellent choice.
If your existing provider reformulates, put their new formulation to the test to see whether they can match the balance of performance and other qualities 3M Novec Aerosol Cleaners provide.
Every Novec aerosol cleaning product contains over 95% active solvent — for more cleaning power and more cleans per can — and less than 5% propellant, which is ordinary CO2. Many competitive aerosols contain only 75% active solvent.
