3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2230 is a copolymer of vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene with a 65.9% fluorine content. This fluoroelastomer (FKM) is used for property modification and is suitable for compression molding, extrusion, calendering and coatings. It is a medium-viscosity raw gumstock that is curable with amine or bisphenol-type curing agents.

A Versatile FKM
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FC 2230 has a number of attributes that make it suitable for compression molding, extrusion, calendering and coatings. The raw gum can be used to adjust physical properties and processability, e.g. crosslink density and viscosity.

Dyneon fluoroelastomer FC 2230 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 2230 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 2230 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.
