3M™ Dyneon™ Perfluoroelastomers (PFE) Product Selection Guide
July 1, 2021
3M has released a new resource that explains how to select its high-performance Dyneon™ perfluoroelastomer (PFE) products for reliable sealing in critical applications. From hot-running engines to the harsh chemicals used in the semiconductor industry and beyond, these FKM and FFKM materials are designed to withstand harsh operating conditions.
3M’s downloadable guide is available in PDF format and begins with an introduction that explains how Dyneon™ fluoropolymers combine broad resistance to chemicals and plasma with high temperature resistance, low permeation, high reliability, long service life, and easy processability.
Industries and Applications
As the 3M™ Dyneon™ Perfluorelastomers (PFE) Product Selection Guide explains, the aerospace industry uses these high-performance materials for molded rings, compression seals, O-ring cords, and molded-in-place gaskets. The oil, gas, and chemical processing industry (CPI) use 3M™ Dyneon™ PFE products in downhole and petrochemical pump seals, packers, reactors, mixers, valves, and rubber-to-metal bonding parts.
Semiconductor industry applications include chamber lid seals, gate valve seals, bonded seals, O-rings, and pump linings. For additional information about 3M™ Dyneon™ high-temperature perfluoroelastomers for semiconductor sealing, 3M provides this web page with details about both dry-side and wet-side applications.
