Chemical Structure
Packing of Bretazenil


Novec 1230, C6F12O, (3M Novec 1230) fluid is a low global warming potential Halon replacement for use as a gaseous fire suppression agent. Novec 1230 is manufactured by 3M. It is generally used in situations where water from a fire sprinkler would damage expensive equipment or where water-based fire protection is impractical, such as museums, banks, clean rooms and hospitals.
3M Novec 1230 fluid does not deplete ozone (ODP 0) and has a global warming potential of 1 over 100 years, equivalent to that of carbon dioxide.
Novec 1230 fluid is a high molecular weight material, compared with the first generation halocarbon clean agents. The product has a heat of vaporization of 88.1 kJ/kg and low vapor pressure. Although it is a liquid at room temperature it gasifies immediately after being discharged in a total flooding system.
The product is ideal for use in total flooding applications, localized flooding systems, directional spray type applications and may be used in portable extinguishers for specialized applications. But in addition to the conventional methods of super-pressurization using nitrogen, Novec 1230 fluid also lends itself for use in pump applications because it is a liquid.
It has been used as a full-immersion fluid in a proof of concept data center cooling system by Intel and SGI; Chemically, it is a fluorinated ketone with the systematic name 1,1,1,2,2,4,5,5,5-nonafluoro-4-(trifluoromethyl)-3-pentanone and the structural formula CF3CF2C(=O)CF(CF3)2, a fully fluorinated analog of ethyl isopropyl ketone.
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) classifies this chemical as H412 – Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects.

Part I: Introduction

With the development of science and technology and the progress of society, machinery, medicine, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and so on are all penetrating people’s daily lives. One product, in particular, is PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE), which is developing rapidly.

The official answer: PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) is an important alternative to halon fire extinguishing agents. It is a fluorinated ketone compound, which is a clear, colorless, odorless liquid that is supercharged with nitrogen and stored in a high-pressure cylinder as part of a fire extinguishing system. Its chemical structure is identical to that of 3M’s NOVEC 1230 Fire Fighting Fluid. Typical application areas include fires in computer rooms, data centers, aviation, ships, vehicles, libraries, oil and gas production, etc. 

One of the outstanding features of PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) fire suppressants is their excellent environmental performance. With an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0, a global warming potential (GWP) of 1, and an atmospheric lifetime (in years) of 0.014 (5 days), it is a long-lasting alternative to halons, HFCs, and PFCs.

Where are the main areas of application for PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE)?

Part II: In-depth development

Fire extinguishing agents

PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) is a liquid at room temperature. As its heat of evaporation is only 1/25th that of water and its vapor pressure is 25 times that of water, these properties make it easy to vaporize and exist in a gaseous state, and it relies mainly on heat absorption to achieve its fire extinguishing effect. In terms of environmental protection, it is a veritable green fire extinguishing agent. As the fire extinguishing concentration of PFC is 4-6%, the safety margin is relatively high and it is safer for human beings when in use. PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) is a liquid at room temperature and is not a hazardous substance, so it can be safely stored and transported under normal pressure in a wide range of temperatures using ordinary containers (including air transport), unlike other halon alternatives which require pressure containers for storage and transport, but its boiling point is 48-49°C. Its use as a fire extinguishing agent is still somewhat limited, and it is used as a replacement for halon 1211 fire extinguishers, or B Class B fire protection for full flooding systems and local application systems.

Cleaning agents

PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) is used as a wet cleaning agent for steam reactors and steam reactor components, as well as for cleaning unwanted deposits accumulated in vapor phase reactors, etching dielectric or metallic materials in vapor phase reactors, and doping various materials in vapor phase reactors.

In practice, there are various liquid chemical agents for cleaning, usually including various hydrocarbons such as acetone or is acetone, and various fluorinated chemicals such as perfluorinated hydrocarbons and perfluorinated nitrogen substituted compounds. Water and hydrocarbons do not easily resolve residues from fluoropolymers, in addition, water requires a long drying time and hydrocarbons are flammable. Fluorinated compounds are very stable and have the potential to contribute to global warming and are difficult to capture or treat with gas scrubbers. PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) overcomes these drawbacks of traditional cleaning agents and has a significant cleaning effect and low impact on global warming trends.


Lubricants made from perfluoropolyethers can be applied as a coating to a substrate such as a magnetic medium. After the coating has dried, the surface of the substrate is covered with a thin, uniform lubricating film. PERFLUORO(2-METHYL-3-PENTANONE) dissolves various perfluoropolyether compounds.

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
