3M Novec 低表面能薄膜涂料 EGC-1700上市與之配合使用的還有用于控制離子，金屬和非揮發性殘渣的 3M Novec HFE-7100DL 電子清洗液 3M Novec EGC-1700 可用于印刷線路板（PWBs）的保護涂層。使用后的PWBs表面留有一層非常薄的透明膜，起到極佳的防潮，防粘效果，對于各種低表面張力液體，諸如：油污、硅油、抗光蝕溶液等均有效。
3M Novec Electronic Coating EGC-1700 is a clear, low viscosity solution of a fluorochemical acrylate polymer coating carried in a hydrofluoroether solvent. The solvent is nonflammable, has low toxicity and provides acceptable environmental properties for today’s demanding electronic applications. It contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). When applied to clean, moisture-free surfaces such as copper, aluminum, ceramic,steel, tin or glass, Novec coating EGC-1700 dries to a thin transparent film with excellent anti-wetting, anti-stiction, anti-migration, and anti-corrosion properties required in many
diverse applications. This makes it applicable for many uses in the electronics industry including coating printed circuit boards, MR heads, micro motors, ball bearing tracks,MEMS, ink jet print cartridges and various components in hard disk drives. The low surface energy film repels liquids such as lubricating oils, silicones, and photoresist solutions used in the manufacturing of semiconductors.
Novec coating EGC-1700 will form a clear, nearly invisible, uniform film that is insoluble in solvents such as heptane, toluene, and water. It is strippable with fluorinated solvents.
These films can endure up to 175°C for prolonged periods and maintain good repellency.
