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.
In this video presentation, RDAbbott’s Special Projects Manager Tom Martin provides an overview of the technical services and elastomer products RDAbbott provides, as well as highlights a few new rubber technologies impacting the transportation industry.

DiamondKote™ DKW-4168 is a mold release agent from ITW Pro Brands that was developed to meet the growing needs of FKM seal and gasket manufacturers who serve the automotive supply industry. In addition to fluorocarbon-based fluoroelastomers, this versatile mold release can be used with silicones, peroxide-cured EPDMs, and polyacrylates. This demonstration video from ITW Pro Brands shows how DiamondKote™ DKW-4168 is packaged, applied, and used.
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.
Through RDAbbott, 3M is offering access to the recording of a recent “Introduction to Fluoroelastomers” webinar that describes fluoroelastomer types, properties, cure systems, and processing.
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.
