Opteon SF79 Next Generation Low GWP Precision Cleaning Fluid

Opteon SF79 is a high solvency cleaning agent developed to replace nPB and in response to worldwide market demand for safe, nonflammable and low environmental impact products for cleaning applications. Typical applications for this product include degreasing, precision cleaning, defluxing, silicone removal, 3D metal parts cleaning (Used in MarkForged Metal X 3D printer Wash-1).  Superior cleaning performance with best solvency power in its class (Kb value = 103)


2x the solvency and 1/2 the price of 3M™ Novec™ 72DA


Low odor and toxicity

Designed to clean a wide range of soils

Fast drying with an optimum boiling point (47 °C [117 °F]), allows cleaned parts to be processed and used immediately 

No surfactants needed: Removes extra washing steps to achieve residue-free cleaning

Compatible with a broad range of metals, plastics, and elastomers

Chemically and thermally stable

Zero ODP and low GWP (< 15 GWP)

Recyclable and reusable: Reduces cost of ownership and environmental footprint 

Low surface tensions

Allows for the continued use of existing equipment (no or minimal equipment upgrade necessary)

High soil loading capacity boosts productivity by reducing equipment downtime associated with solvent change-outs

Easy to handle, easy to store

Opteon SF79 represents a safe alternative to chlorinated solvents such as HCFC-225, 141b, TCE and nPB, which are currently being phased out due to health and environmental risks. The safe exposure limit for nPB has been measured at 5-10 ppm industry authorities even recommend further reducing to 0.1 ppm whereas Opteon SF79 has a safe exposure limit of 201 ppm, which is comparable to everyday rubbing alcohol.


The cleaning power of Opteon SF79 has been measured to a 103 KB value, which is a cleaning power standard. Opteon SF79 can match nPB and other common formulations ounce for ounce, providing all their solvency benefits, while offering a superior toxicity profile.


While Opteon SF79 is a safe, effective, and environmentally friendly nPB replacement, nPB requires acid acceptance testing, stabilizer maintenance, and solvent air monitoring for safe and effective use. These additional formulations and processes increase your overall cost of using nPB making Opteon SF-79 an even better, safer value.
