3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FX 11818 is a terpolymer of hexafluoropropylene, tetrafluoroethylene and vinylidene fluoride with a fluorine content of 68.6%. This fluoroelastomer (FKM) is an intermediate-fluorine product suitable for automobile fuel system applications requiring improved fuel resistance over standard copolymer products.
Improved Fuel Resistance
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FX 11818 has many attributes that make it suitable for automobile fuel system applications where improved fuel resistance is required, as well as applications requiring higher levels of elongation. Dyneon fluoroelastomer FX 11818 is primarily used in extrusions and calendering.
This FKM can be compounded using standard water-cooled internal mixers or two-roll mills with standard fillers and ingredients utilized in typical FKM formulations. The dry ingredients should be blended before adding to the masticated gum. For best results, Dyneon fluoroelastomer FX 11818 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.
Offering Different Quantities to Meet the Needs of the Job
Dyneon fluoroelastomer FX 11818 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.
