Why is there such a shortage of Fluorinert ?
And a more detailed article.
DC CO2 laser tubes like PLX medical, Deka surgical, Deka dental, Lumenis Ultrapulse, Sharplan Silk Touch and others use Fluorinert™ Electronic Liquid as coolant.

3M™ manufactures and ships Fluorinert™ electronic liquid in 5 kg and 20 kg jugs and 55 gallon drums. We repackage and ship you FC-770 and FC-40 in small quantities that you need to top off your laser reservoir.
When the Electronic Liquid coolant in your laser system evaporates and you ask for 'just a little to top off my reservoir' or when you lose some coolant when you service your laser tube, you could go and buy the smallest factory packaged 3/4 gallon container and use it over many years !
However that would be extremely wasteful and expensive because Fluorinert™ evaporates and also has a shelf life.
For that reason we provide you Electronic Liquid coolant in smaller repackaged amounts. You can choose typical re-packaged quantities needed for your laser tube and / or HV power supply.
-- We maintain a reasonable quantity on hand for your immediate needs. Please see table below or inquire at contact us.
