3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FLS 2530 is a molded grade, intermediate viscosity copolymer with 69% fluorine. This product offers excellent compression set resistance and improved chemical resistance compared with lower percent fluorine fluoropolymers.

High on Fluorine. Excellent Performance.
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer FLS 2530 is a copolymer of vinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene. It can be compounded using standard water cooled internal mixers or two-roll mills with standard fillers and ingredients utilized in typical fluoroelastomer formulations. The dry ingredients should be blended before adding to the masticated gum. For best results, Dyneon fluoroelastomer FLS 2530 should be banded on the mill several minutes prior to adding the blended dry ingredients. Once mixed, the compounded stocks have good scorch resistance and storage stability.

Notably, this product offers broad chemical and temperature resistance, as well as a proprietary incorporated cure technology that may help save time and increase throughput because a separate cure method is not required. In addition, this product stands out from others due to its 69% fluorine content which offers improved chemical resistance and excellent compression set resistance compared with lower percent fluorine fluoropolymers.

The Right Size to Fit the Job
This product is sold in different sizes, so compounders and formulators can pick the right size for the job. Dyneon fluoroelastomer FLS 2530 is packaged in milled slab form (as opposed to unmilled forms like crumb) 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 Ibs (25.0 kg) boxes.
