    3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomer FPO 3820 is a terpolymer of vinylidene fluoride, hexafluoropropylene and tetrafluoroethylene, plus a cure site monomer. This next-generation FKM has a fluorine content of 70.1% for excellent resistance against chemical fluids. These properties make it an excellent choice for fuel line hoses and blow-by gas hoses.

    A Next-Generation FKM
    3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomer FPO 3820 is part of our next-generation peroxide cure fluoroelastomers. These next-generation FKMs offer many benefits over previous products, including high to excellent resistance against chemical fluids and good physical properties right out of the press. Plus, due to their ability to be cured without metal oxides, these FKMs have improved acid resistance for reduced volume swell.
