LONDON, ON — 3M Canada today introduced 3M Novec Contact Cleaner Plus to its complete line of non-flammable aerosol cleaners that offers more cleaning power for removing oil, grease and silicones in sensitive electronics.

3M Novec Contact Cleaner Plus is ideal for maintenance and repair (MRO) along with assembly operations for electronics, aerospace, defence, transportation, utilities and mining industries. The product is best suited in medium-duty applications where sensitive devices like connectors, printed circuit boards, electromechanical devices, scales, relays and circuit breakers need a fast-drying, non-conductive cleaner.

Formulated with 3M Novec 7200 Engineered Fluid, the product is compatible with plastics and is volatile organic compound (VOC) compliant under California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations for electrical cleaners.

"Our newest cleaner offers a plastic-safe formula with extra cleaning power that meets and exceeds existing environmental regulations," said Bob Salvarakis, electronics markets materials marketing manager, 3M Canada. "This high-performing, non-flammable and non-conductive contact cleaner provides peace of mind, even in high voltage workspaces."


3M Novec Contact Cleaner Plus, contains 95 per cent active solvent, which helps deliver more cleaning power and additional cleans per can compared to many other commercial products with 75 per cent or less active solvent. Novec Contact Cleaner Plus is fast drying, low odour, non-corrosive, non-conductive and requires no rinsing.
