Temperature- and chemical-resistant elastomers, including high-purity grades, for critical sealing and containment applications. Processing additives to improve mold flow and release, cure time and more.
Seals and parts that survive heat, harsh chemicals and bone-crushing pressures. Low-permeation fuel hoses that help reduce automotive emissions. Transparent membrane structures that withstand all kinds of weather. Even non-stick coatings for household cookware. From deep underground to the Alpine mountainside, from industrial plants to the engine of your car, and even in your kitchen, 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers take on the toughest jobs around.
This high-performance family of fluorinated elastomers, fluoroplastics and compounds are used in a wide variety of industries to enhance performance and productivity, and to expand freedom of design.
Dyneon fluoropolymers help keep valuable equipment up and running, even in aggressive chemical environments such as those found in semiconductor etching, pharmaceutical manufacturing or the oil and gas industry.
Whether inside a hot-running engine or exposed to frigid cold, Dyneon fluoropolymers give you more ways to enhance equipment reliability and performance in extreme temperature environments.
From gale-force winds of the Alps to the searing sun and sand-laden winds of the desert, Dyneon fluoropolymers help equipment and structures withstand the elements in some of the most challenging climates on earth.
When you use our custom compounding services, you'll get fast turnaround on a broad range of made-to-order polymer compounds, from prototypes and small batches to production-scale quantities – all optimised to fit the requirements of your unique application.
Our full-service, in-house compounding facilities give you the ability to create unique formulations that are lighter weight, easier to extrude, or have other properties or functions not inherent to the base polymer.
We can create custom PTFE and TFM™ PTFE compounds in standard, free-flowing or pre-sintered grades tailored for the unique requirements of your application. Enhancements can include improved wear resistance, extended product life or lower deformation under load. We also offer specialised compositions such as polymer-filled compounds and speckled materials.
If you’re looking for custom formulations that provide easier extrusion, lightweighting or other enhancements, contact us about our custom compounding services.
