A diverse range of perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) sealing solutions from Dyneon, part of 3M Advanced Materials Division, offer long-lasting sealing applications that can also improve productivity.

Dyneon offers a diverse range of perfluoroelastomers that are customized according to the requirements of the respective market. Aerospace, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing environments can be challenging, so a robust sealing solution is a must.

Dyneon’s diverse range of perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) solutions offer long-lasting sealing applications that can also improve productivity and enhance environmental performance.

A full range of FFKM product solutions

The range includes the newly developed 3M Dyneon Perfluoroelastomer PFE 40Z hemShield, a peroxide curable FFKM, 3M Dyneon Perfluoroelastomer PFE 7301BZ, the enhanced 3M Dyneon Perfluoroelastomer E-21464 HeatShield (continuous at 316 °C with further improved compression set), and the FDA and USP VI compliant 3M Dyneon Perfluoroelastomer PFE 7502BZ ChemShield with all round superior chemical and thermal resistance (continuous at 275°C).

ChemShield - an allround robust solution for the chemical processing industry

Dyneon has developed PFE 7502BZ ChemShield to meet industry demand for a single product that combines the benefits of excellent chemical resistance associated with peroxide curable FFKM technology and with higher continuous operating temperature resistance to improve productivity and the reliability of sealing solutions. This makes it suitable for use with solvents, acids, bases, amines, water and steam processes and in processes with continuous operating temperatures of up to 275 °C. It is also FDA and USP VI compliant, a specific requirement for the pharmaceutical industry.

"Seals made from the specially-formulated ‘ChemShield’ FFKM are more reliable than conventional fluoroelastomer based sealings available on the market," says Brecht Koebrugge, Product Manager FFKM. "The techniques used to manufacture this product takes FFKM technology to an even higher level and it offers chemical and pharmaceutical processors a dependable means of boosting both efficiency and environmental performance at the same time."
