3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2180 is a medium-viscosity copolymer of vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene with a fluorine content of 65.9%. This fluoroelastomer (FKM) is used in compression molding, transfer molding and calendering.

An Incorporated Cure FKM
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2180 exhibits lower shrink profiles compared to our 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2174, and is used in compression and transfer molding, as well as calendering. Its proprietary incorporated cure technology may help you save time while processing and increase throughput.

Dyneon fluoroelastomer FC 2180 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, FC 2180 should be banded on the mill prior to adding the blended dry ingredients. Once mixed, the compounded stocks have good scorch resistance and storage stability.

Offering Different Quantities to Meet the Needs of the Job
Dyneon fluoroelastomer FC 2180 is packaged in slab form 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.
