3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE TFM 1600 is an exceptional free flowing powder grade polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) that’s ideal for compression molding applications such as isostatic and automatic molding. Molded parts made with TFM 1600 offers broad chemical resistance and a broad operating temperature range.
PTFE: An Indispensable Problem Solver
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 to architectural elements. 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE is selected for its technical excellence and reliability. Our 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE TFM 1600 is an exceptional modified free-flowing compression molding powder for applications such as seals, gaskets, shaped parts, molded cylinders and small/thin walled parts. This versatile product has a relatively large particle size with good electrical and mechanical properties.
Fluorine Makes the Difference
Quite simply, fluorine makes the difference. Fluoropolymers like Dyneon PTFE TFM 1600 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 TFM 1600 broad chemical resistance and a broad operating temperature range. This PTFE TFM meets ASTM D4894 Type III, Grade 2.
