Long-term Solution: Precision-V and PWR-4 Solvents

Choose one of Techspray’s replacements, under the product brands PWR-4 and Precision-V, for improved performance and cost. Custom formulations are available to meet specification requirements (e.g. low GWP, PFAS-free).

  • PWR-4 solvents are designed to replace nPB, TCE and Perc, matching and surpassing cleaning performance without the safety concerns.
  • Precision-V vapor degreaser solvents are ideal replacements for 3M Novec solvents and AK-225 based cleaners, which were phased out due to the ozone depletion restrictions of the Montreal Protocol.

End-users that want to maintain control of their supply of high precision solvents for their critical cleaning needs should start the process of identifying and qualifying replacements as soon as possible. The alternative would be operating at the whims of global demand on a very restricted supply.

Is 3M discontinuing Novec solvents?

On December 20, 2022, 3M announced their plans to phase-out their Novec PFAS-based product lines by the end of 2025:

“3M today announced it plans to exit per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) manufacturing and work to discontinue use of PFAS in its product portfolio by the end of 2025. This portfolio decision is based on careful consideration and a thorough evaluation of the external landscape, including multiple factors such as accelerating regulatory trends focused on reducing or eliminating the presence of PFAS in the environment and changing stakeholder expectations.”
