3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE TF 1620 is a semi-free flowing powder grade polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) that’s ideal for molding of billets for skived films of greater than 200 µm, shaped parts sheet stock and thinner walled articles. TF 1620 offers broad chemical resistance and an excellent operating temperature range from -328°F (-200°C) to 500°F (260°C).

1-2-3, PTFE
Polytetrafluoroethylene — commonly known as PTFE — is used as indispensable problem solver. It's commonly used in a broad variety of challenging applications from harsh industrial environments through architectural design elements to household applications. 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE is selected for its technical excellence and reliability.

3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE TF 1620 is ideal for molding of billets for skived films of greater than 200 µm, shaped parts, sheet stock and thinner walled articles. Dyneon PTFE TF 1620 is positioned between free flow and standard flow PTFE — and may allow the processor to use lower pressure than traditional free flowing powders.

Fluorine Makes the Difference
Quite simply, fluorine makes the difference. Fluoropolymers like Dyneon PTFE TF 1620 are outstanding materials, created by the presence and dominance of fluorine. Fluorine imparts special properties to fluoropolymers that make the difference for the polymer and the application. Like many of our PTFE products, the presence of fluorine gives Dyneon PTFE TF 1620 broad chemical resistance and an excellent operating temperature range from -328°F (-200°C) to 500°F (260°C). This PTFE meets ASTM D4894 Type IV, Grade 2.
