    Fluorochemicals from 3M

    When it comes to versatility, we’re in our element

    • Need to keep surfaces free of unsightly stains? Maximize natural gas production? Lay down a perfectly smooth coat of paint? It may surprise you to learn that fluorochemicals are the key to making these and many other useful things happen – thanks to their ability to form compounds with an almost limitless array of unique properties.

      3M helped pioneer the science of fluorochemistry more than 60 years ago – and we’re continuing to find new ways to put these amazing materials to work. For example, our compounds are enabling freer-flowing paints and coatings; reducing hazardous sulfuric acid mist in copper production; keeping surfaces looking new for longer; and stopping water from blocking natural gas wells.

      3M fluorochemicals are engineered for high purity, performance and sustainability – including our next-generation C4 chemistry, offering a favorable safety and environmental profile for its intended uses. Whatever your application, you can rely on 3M fluorochemicals to provide a practical, reliable and cost-effective solution.


    • 3M™ Fluorosurfactants

      These high-performance alternatives to hydrocarbon surfactants provide excellent wetting, spreading and leveling properties to improve performance of paints, coatings, resins, inks, adhesives and more. Based on next-generation C4 chemistry.
