With harsher chemical environments, broader temperature ranges and more complex and demanding designs, sealing applications are more extreme than ever before. There are also more elastomer options than ever before. Combine all of these issues and today’s rubber chemists and design engineers face some tough decisions when it comes to material specification.
3M’s technical expertise and commitment to customer service help take the guesswork out of choosing the right fluoroelastomer for your application.
This product comparison guide is designed to address the basic considerations when formulating a fluoroelastomer compound: “What is the environment?” “What is the application?” “What is the manufacturing process?” and “What is the part profile?” The answers to these questions will help narrow your search for a fluoroelastomer that can deliver optimal performance.
When you need further clarification or have a particularly challenging application, our Application and Product Development Engineers and Chemists are ready to help. You will find our contact information on the back cover of this brochure.
