    3M's Advanced Materials Division has several technology platforms which provide advanced additive and ingredient technologies. They are engineered to survive extreme heat, harsh chemicals, and crushing pressures and also to enhanced reliability, performance, efficiency, and productivity. AdMD focuses on Ceramics, Glass Bubbles, Fluorosurfactants, Fluorothermoplastics and of course Fluoroelastomers. This series of seven webinars will give the viewer a basic understanding of 3M's Fluoroelastomer polymer, how it is cured, compounding and processing. Also contained in this series are two webinars focusing on 3M's Perfluorinated elastomers and our newest peroxide cured polymers.
