RDAbbott and 3M are co-hosting a free webinar that will provide industry professionals with an introduction to fluoroelastomers (FKM), highly fluorinated polymers that can withstand high heat, harsh chemicals, and crushing pressures. This one-hour event begins on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, at 2:00 PM Eastern.
At a time when technical support is becoming tough to find, it’s good to know that 3M maintains state-of-the-art testing and analytical labs, pilot manufacturing facilities, and most important, an experienced staff of application engineers.
RDAbbott recently signed a revised distribution agreement with global science leader 3M for select fluoropolymers and additives accounts within the United States.
The 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomers Compound Recipes booklet is a guide for evaluating, processing, and troubleshooting FKM with certain 3M products.
The first step in developing an FKM part is determining a formulation to withstand the part’s future environment. The part’s environment will dictate the physical properties required for your rubber compound. This chart is an excellent starting point for developing that initial formulation.
