3M™ Dyneon™ Clear Perfluoroelastomer System PFE 300Z is an advanced perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) system that incorporates polymer and catalyst technologies. It is a high-temperature perfluoroelastomer crumb and curative kit, containing two 1 kg bags of 3M™ Dyneon™ Perfluoroelastomer PFE 300TZ and one 25 g bottle of 3M™ Dyneon™ PFE 300C catalyst, designed for producing optically clear parts.

Packaged for Easy Cleanroom Handling
3M™ Dyneon™ Clear Perfluoroelastomer System PFE 300Z is an advanced FFKM system that incorporates polymer and catalyst technologies. For best results and to reduce chances for contamination, dedicated mixing, extrusion and molding equipment in a cleanroom environment is recommended for processing this material. To help achieve that goal, Dyneon clear perfluoroelastomer system PFE 300Z comes in smaller, easy-to-store packages that make cleanroom handling easier. The packages contain proportionate polymer and catalyst to further simplify the mixing process and help save time and increase throughput.

Due to the nature of the perfluoroelastomer materials, PFE 300Z is best suited for open-mill mixing techniques. This product, like most perfluoroelastomers, builds heat rapidly during mixing. For best results, we recommend that roll temperature is controlled between 20-30°C (70-90°F).

Designed for Extreme Environments
Dyneon clear perfluoroelastomer system PFE 300Z is a high-temperature kit with excellent temperature resistance, optimizing performance in extreme environments. It is formulated to withstand continuous, in-service temperatures up to 300°C with peaks up to 350°C.

In addition to this extreme-environment capability, PFE 300Z compounds are very easy to extrude and show excellent moldability. The recommended molding temperature range is 155-165°C (311-330°F). At this temperature, the material exhibits good flow behavior with excellent mold release.

Top Performing Polymers from 3M
3M™ Dyneon™ Perfluoroelastomers are elastomeric materials with a fully fluorinated backbone.
