3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2179 is a di-polymer of vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene. This high viscosity 66% fluorine fluoroelastomer (FKM) has an incorporated cure technology that may help save time and improve throughput. Additionally, Dyneon™ fluoroelastomer FC 2179 offers broad chemical and temperature resistance for durability and product longevity.

Broad Chemical and Temperature Resistance
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2179 is a di-polymer of vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene. It can be compounded using standard water cooled internal mixers or two-roll mills with standard fillers and ingredients utilized in typical fluoroelastomer formulations. The dry ingredients should be blended before adding to the masticated gum. For best results, Dyneon™ fluoroelastomer FC 2179 should be banded on the mill several minutes prior to adding the blended dry ingredients. Once mixed, the compounded stocks have good scorch resistance and storage stability.

Dyneon™ fluoroelastomer FC 2179 has a number of notable features, beginning with broad chemical and temperature resistance: -18°C (-0.4°F) to 250°C (482°F). In addition, the proprietary incorporated cure technology may help save time and improve throughput. FC 2179 also has excellent compression set resistance, low permeation, 66% fluorine, and high viscosity.

The Right Size to Fit the Job
This product is sold in different sizes, so compounders and formulators can pick the right size for the job. FC 2179 is packaged in milled slab form (as opposed to unmilled forms like crumb) and is available in a returnable bulk shipping container system for 1,320 Ibs (600 kg) of material. The bulk container system is comprised of 48 individual polyethylene bags containing 27.5 Ibs (12.5 kg) of product. Smaller quantities are available in 55.1 Ib (25.0 kg) boxes.
