Details
  • Fluorinated nitrile designed to be a lower GWP alternative to sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆)
  • Non-flammable
  • High dielectric strength
  • Wide safety margin for workers when used as designed for intended applications
  • Lower Global Warming Potential (GWP)
  • Zero ozone depletion potential

3M™ Novec™ 4710 Insulating Gas is a sustainable alternative to sulfur hexafluoride (SF₆) for electrical equipment insulation and arc quenching applications. It offers excellent dielectric properties, a wide range of operating temperatures and significant reductions in environmental impacts compared to SF₆.

Novec 4710 gas in pure form has a relative dielectric strength two times greater than SF₆ at a given pressure. This SF₆ alternative also has important environmental properties such as low global warming potential (GWP) when mixed with inert gases and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP). Novec 4710 gas is nonflammable and has a wide safety margin for workers when used as designed for intended applications.
