Hydrofluoroether Market – Wide Applications in Electronic Industry

With wide-ranging properties of hydrofluoroether, it is used in different manufacturing processes and in a variety of applications. HFEs finds tremendous uses in various application, such as dry clean process, heat transfer process and several other applications in electronics industry, computer technology, semiconductor packaging etc., while manufacturing a huge variety of products. Being a low GWP foaming agent and refrigerant, hydrofluoroether is used in manufacturing processes of products, such as cosmetics, insulated containers, heat transfer fluids, perfumes and fragrances, cleaning products like detergents and wash liquids, etc. Beneficial insulating capabilities and environmental benefits of using cyclopentane are contributing to increasing industrial applications. Reduction in the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is among the most important advantages of using hydrofluoroether and replaced other hazardous chemicals, such as HCFCs and HFCs, due to which many governmental and environmental organizations are promoting the use of hydrofluoroether. Due to such advantageous properties, hydrofluoroether finds a wide range of applications in many industries, which is expected to be an important driver of the global hydrofluoroether market during the forecast period.

Hydrofluoroether Market – Increased Demand for Hydrofluoroether as Eco-friendly Substitute for HCFCs and HFC

Hydrochloroflorocarbons (HCFCs) are the compounds that are largely used as refrigerants in different applications such as freezers, air conditioners, refrigerators, etc., as well as in insulating foams. HCFCs are leaked or released through the manufacturing processes, during the usage, and while disposing off different types of cooling equipment, which makes use of HCFCs as a cooling agent. Release of HCFCs can result in some serious environmental problems as it contributes to global warming. Strong warming effect of the HCFCs on the environment can also contaminate the air, inhaling which, can affect the human health as well. To control the release of HCFCs and maintain the air quality that is safe to human health, many governments have banned the use of HCFCs as refrigerants and insulation gas. As hydrofluoroether can also be used as a refrigerant and insulation foaming agent, which reduces the foam density and introduced higher pressure on the foam cells. With the increasing demand for hydrofluoroether as a low-Global Warming Potential (GWP), electronic cleaning agent and refrigerant agent replaces the hazardous HCFCs and HFCs. The global hydrofluoroether market is expected to grow exponentially in the future.

Hydrofluoroether Market – Increasing Use of hydrofluoroethers (HFEs & HFOs) in Metal, Precision and Electronic Cleaning

Hydrofluoroether solvents are widely used for metal cleaning, precision cleaning, electronic cleaning, etc., which can be attributed to the advantages provided by hydrofluoroethers, such as zero ODP (HFE) and low global warming potential (exhibited by HFE). Hydrofluoroether solvents are majorly non-flammable and have superior drying properties apart from being compatible with elastomers, plastics, metals, etc., and are recyclable.

Hydrofluoroether solvents are used in various end-use industries, such as medical, electronics, metal aviation and aerospace for cleaning purposes. They are also used in degreasing, as carrier solvents, and in the refluxing of printing wiring assemblies.

Attributing to such numerous advantages and the diverse applications across various end-use industries, the demand for hydrofluoroether solvents is expected to continue rising until regulations are applied for HFE.

In electronic cleaning, solvents are specially engineered to dependably dissolve common manufacturing greases, oils and fluxes from a range of electronic substrates, much more easily than aqueous detergent fluids. Furthermore, the latter displays significant advantages over aqueous fluids, such as superior penetration of tight spaces, minimal residue, shorter cycle times, lesser energy consumption, reduced fluid usage and smaller equipment footprint (lesser space than aqueous cleaning equipment). These factors have been significantly driving the growth of the hydrofluoroether as electronic cleaning solvent in Asia Pacific, North America and Europe, with rising demand due to the above advantages.

Various companies, such as 3M, NuGenTec, etc., are offering HFE products. 3M provides HFE 7000 3M Novec Engineered Fluid, HFE 7100 3M Novec Engineered Fluid, HFE-71IPA 3M Novec Engineered Fluid (azeotropic mixture of HFE-7100 and isopropanol), HFE-71DA 3M Novec Engineered Fluid (azeotropic mixture of HFE-7100, trans, and ethanol), HFE-7200 3M Novec Engineered Fluid and many more fluids, which have low global warming potential and low toxicity (GWP) in companion to HFCs and PFCs. These fluids also find application in precision cleaning, electronics cleaning and in metal cleaning.
