Diversified technology company 3M has launched a free guide that that explains to electronics and industrial users how use of cleaning fluids is affected by legislation introduced to minimise environmental impact and improve worker safety. The e-booklet aims to simplify understanding around recent and new legislation, including timescales and options. Legislation covered within the guide include the Solvents Emissions Directive, the F Gas Regulations, HCFC-141B, REACH and RoHS.

Said Mark Nursall, 3M Technical Sales Specialist, “As a company that has a strong emphasis on the environment, as well as occupational health and safety, 3M works closely with its customers to help address new rules and regulations, including chemicals used for cleaning and finishing.”

For instance, 3M has introduced a range of Novec hydro-fluoro ethers (HFEs), which provide an excellent performance compared to more traditional cleaning fluids, lower cost of ownership and fall outside the scope of most legislation concerned.”
