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.
Join us November 3 at 2 PM (ET) for “Mechanical and Dynamic Properties of Peroxide Cured HNBR Compounds,” a free webinar about Therban® HNBR, ARLANXEO’s hydrogenated nitrile rubber, a high performance specialty elastomer with excellent mechanical, dynamic, and sealing properties combined with resistance to tear, abrasion, and aging. It is used in demanding automotive, industrial, and oil and gas applications.

This one-hour course will review concentrate on 3M’s peroxide cure fluoroelastomer product offering and the automotive applications they can be used. This webinar will also review some basic compounding of fluoroelastomers and the role of metal oxides and hydroxides, various filler types, and processing aids.
3M is hosting a free webinar titled, “Perfluorinated Elastomer Overview,” on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. This 45-minute course will concentrate on the markets and applications where perfluorinated elastomers are used, as well as highlight the types of gums and compounds available from 3M.
On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (ET) the Ontario and Quebec Rubber Groups will host a free webinar titled, “Elastomer Sealing Performance in Hydrogen Fuel Cells.” In this live webinar, ARLANXEO Polymer Scientist Jake Rawski will highlight elastomer sealing performance advancements using Thermax® N990 Carbon Black and X_Butyl® Bromobutyl designed for hydrogen fuel system technologies.
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.
