    3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2181 is a copolymer of vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene with a 65.9% fluorine content. This fluoroelastomer (FKM) offers excellent demolding of complex geometric profiles, and its incorporated cure technology may help you save time and increase throughput.

    An Incorporated Cure FKM
    3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2181 offers excellent demolding of complex geometric profiles, and has many favorable attributes that make it suitable for compression molding, transfer molding and calendering. With its proprietary incorporated cure, you may save time while processing and increase throughput.

    Dyneon fluoroelastomer FC 2181 can be compounded using standard water-cooled internal mixers or two-roll mills with standard fillers and ingredients utilized in typical fluoroelastomer (FKM) formulations. The dry ingredients should be blended before adding to the masticated gum. For best results, FC 2181 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.

    Different Quantities to Meet the Needs of the Job
    Dyneon fluoroelastomer FC 2181 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.
