Fluorine-based Organic Solvent “Novec” 

“Novec” HFE is a substance developed by the 3M Company as a substitute solvent for specified CFSs. Its ozone depleting potential is zero and its global warming potential is significantly lower than other fluorocarbon substitutes like HFC and PFC, making it a highly environmentally friendly product.
