Dear Neters,

We are Technology Transfer /Commercialization Assistance company and I am doing a quick assessment of a new cleaning formula developed by one of the Fortune 500 companies.

According to the developer's description:

A proprietary cleaning fluid for all types of electronic and/or optical devices delivers:

1. Outstanding shine performance particularly on LCD screens, monitors and transparent surfaces in general. On non-transparent plastic surfaces, the fluid produces a visible ‘surface rejuvenation’ effect.
2. Complete safety on all types of surfaces, even very delicate ones such as optical parts, thanks to the high chemical inertia of the solvent medium used.
3. Complete electrical safety even in case of spillage on live circuits. As a striking example of what this means, one could immerse a TV into a transparent tank filled up with our cleaning fluid, turn on the TV and watch it!
4. Very good removal of soil and grease cutting performance, in line with best solvent-based products available today.

The key technology in this cleaning fluid is represented by perfluoropolyethers and hydrogen-terminated perfluoropolyethers. Due to their high fluorine content, these liquids have a very strong chemical inertia and one of the highest known dielectric constants. In addition they are not flammable, neither toxic nor irritant, they do not contribute to ozone depletion and have low global warming potential.

I believe this composition has great potentials.

I would greatly appreciate your expert opinion, comments and questions.
Does this sound like something innovative and important?

Would you be interested to use this fluid when/if it becomes available from a manufacturer?

Thanks a lot for your time!
