Four new grades of 3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide (PO) Cure Fluoroelastomers were launched in 2019. These improved PO cure grades include the highest fluorine content of any 3M PO cure at 70.1%, require no metal oxides for curing, and have expanded mooney viscosities. These properties allow for better chemical resistance and improved processing.
