NEXT CF (Carrier Fluid)

NEXT CF (Carrier Fluid) is a nonflammable carrier fluid used alongside various silicones, lubricants and other coatings during device assemblies that require a uniform coat to be applied.

NEXT CF is highly soluble with PDMS fluids, lubricants and other coatings and thus works exceptionally well as a carrier solvent for parts that need coatings regardless of part geometry. Simply submerge parts into a solution of NEXT CF and the coating that needs to be applied, and then slowly remove the parts from the mixture. NEXT CF will evaporate quickly, leaving only a thin uniform layer of the desired coating behind. This process is quick yet simple and yields consistent results even in tough to reach places.

In addition to its high solubility, NEXT CF has exceptionally low viscosity and surface tension further enhancing its ability to adequately cover parts of all geometric shapes. NEXT CF by itself has a high KB value. That said, when used without a fluid for carrying, it is well-suited as an industrial grade solvent cleaner for silicones, oils, flux and other contaminants during assembly.
