3M has launched a new automotive-focused web page with detailed information, infographics, videos, and downloadable guides about its 3M™ Dyneon™ fluoroelastomers.
3M is sharing a white paper that compares the long-term compression stress relaxation (CSR) of hydrocarbon rubbers to FKM, a category of materials that include 3M™ Dyneon™ fluoroelastomers. All these materials were immersed in organic acid technology (OAT) coolant and in ethylene glycol coolant for 3000 hours.
3M is sharing a sales sheet that compares the performance of three 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomers with HNBR and EPDM rubber after these materials were heat aged in coolants.
3M is sharing a video that shows how its 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomers resist chemical absorption and swelling when immersed in methanol.
3M is sharing a video that explains how compression stress relaxation testing is helping automotive manufacturers solve sealing challenges.
3M is sharing a PDF brochure with starter recipes for its 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomers, advanced materials for automotive seals and hoses. These recipes are engineered within desirable property windows for automotive applications and can help give you a competitive edge.
3M is sharing a recording of a recent webinar called “Peroxide Cured Fluoroelastomers in Automotive Applications.” This one-hour course provides an overview of fluoroelastomers in various automotive applications, introduces next-generation peroxide cured products from 3M, and shares a case study about coolant resistance.
RDAbbott has signed a new distribution agreement with 3M to expand its distribution of 3M Advanced Materials to Canada. This new agreement will be facilitated and managed locally by RDAbbott’s Canadian division, RDAbbott Canada, Ltd., based out of Burlington, Ontario, in the Greater Toronto Area. The agreement became effective on July 1, 2021, and covers fluoroelastomers; perfluoroelastomers; and FKM curatives and process aids.
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 turbine engines to the harsh chemicals used in the semiconductor industry and beyond, these FFKM materials are designed to withstand harsh operating conditions.
3M has recently launched new web resources for its next generation of 3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomers (FKMs). These next-gen FKMs offer many benefits over previous products, including high to excellent resistance against chemical fluids and good physical properties right out of the press. Plus, due to their ability to be cured without metal oxides, these FKMs have improved acid resistance for reduced volume swell.
