3M ™ Novec ™ 1700 Electronic Grade Coating

Business Type

Product Detail

3M™ Novec™ 1700 Electronic Grade Coating is a clear, low viscosity, low surface tension solution of a fluorochemical acrylic polymer carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent. Designed for moisture and corrosion protection of printed circuit boards and electronic components, it dries to a thin, transparent, film with excellent hydrophobic and oleophobic properties. It is easy to apply, does not need post curing, is removable and repairable. It is non-flammable, low in toxicity, non-ozone depleting and RoHS compliant.

• Easy application and processing – dries in seconds without the need for thermal post-curing

• Requires little or no masking

• Is easily removed for rework & repair

• Allows solder-through repairability

• Contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and has low global warming potential

• Is thermally and electrically stable with excellent dielectric properties

• Can be applied to metals, glass or epoxy laminates

• Provides excellent repellency, anti-wetting and anti-sticking properties against liquids – water, hydrocarbons, silicones, and photoresists

• Is insoluble in solvents such as heptane, toluene & water

• The polymer can endure up to 175°C for prolonged periods and maintain good repellency

• Has low surface energy which allows lubricating oils, silicones, photoresist solutions, etc. to bead and drain freely from coated surfaces

• Has excellent surface wetting including under low profile components

Applications :

• Provides excellent moisture, chemical and corrosion protection to printed circuit boards and their components

• Is an easy and cost effective alternative to conformal coatings

• Can be used as a sacrificial surface treatment that canbe selectively removed with Novec Engineered Fluids

• Can serve as – an anti-stiction coating for liquid crystal displays, micromotors or MEMS (Micro Electronic Mechanical Systems) components – an anti-migration coating for displays, spindle motors or lubricated electronic parts or – an anti-corrosion coating for a variety of materials and components
