See modern architecture in a whole new light. Film membranes made with 3M™ Dyneon™ ETFE expand freedom of design, allowing self-supporting shapes and curves and high light transmission. These membranes are durable enough to withstand mountain and desert climes – and everything in between.
Bases, acids, solvents, alcohols, steam – corrosive chemicals and extreme temperatures can place extraordinary demands on equipment. Heat exchangers, pumps, valves, heat trace and other components made of 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluorothermoplastics withstand these harsh conditions, helping reduce downtime for maintenance.
The smooth surfaces, low friction and high permeation resistance of 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluorothermoplastics make them excellent solutions for the food and beverage industry. They are used in applications from easy-to-clean processing equipment to food packaging and non-stick coatings for cookware and bakeware.
With a wide service temperature range and broad chemical resistance, 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluorothermoplastics are well suited for pumps, valves, fittings, and powder coated tanks and vessels. They can help extend the life of capital equipment by preventing costly corrosion damage.
Pharmaceutical processing equipment needs to allow for quick product changeover and compatibility with a wide variety of chemicals. High-purity 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluorothermoplastics help prevent contamination, and their low surface energy makes components easy to clean.
In semiconductor manufacturing, any impurities can result in lower wafer yields and higher costs. Our ultra high purity grades (UHP) of 3M™ Dyneon™ PFA are designed with very low metals and ion extractables, helping reduce the risk of costly contamination. Applications include wafer carriers, etch basins, fluid handling systems and other
Tough, dependable 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluorothermoplastics stand up to today's hot-running engines, harsh chemicals and biofuel formulations. They offer long life and high performance in applications ranging from wire and cable to fuel and vapor lines – helping automotive manufacturers meet emissions standards and keep vehicles on the road longer.
We live in a high-speed, data-driven world and our ever increasing global connectivity depends on staggering lengths of data cable. One example: 3M™ Dyneon™ FEP allows the production of continuous long lengths of cable with low signal loss, and its excellent flame and temperature performance makes it a key component in many plenum cable products.
3M™ Dyneon™ PFA has exceptional heat resistance, excellent electrical properties and excellent chemical and weather resistance. Available in both FLEX and ultra high purity (UHP) grades, PFA is the material of choice for semiconductor manufacturing.
3M™ Dyneon™ FEP offers exceptional electrical properties, excellent chemical resistance, toughness and durability. It is an essential component in films, linings, tapes, wire insulation and cable jackets in a variety of industries.
With a wide service temperature range and outstanding resistance to abrasion and cut-through, 3M™ Dyneon™ ETFE is suited for a number of applications, including wiring, tubes, pipes, and UV resistant films for solar modules and architectural membranes.
Flexible and processable at low temperatures, 3M™ Dyneon™ THV offers exceptional optical clarity and light transmission. It can be bonded to many elastomers and plastics, and is used to make multi-layer hoses, tubes, sheets and films for a variety of markets.
Widely used in the chemical processing, semiconductor and wire and cable industries, 3M™ Dyneon™ PVDF offers excellent strength and resistance to aging, flame, permeation, and UV radiation.
