Details
  • High fluorine content for excellent resistance against chemical fluids
  • Peroxide-curable, medium-viscosity fluoroelastomer (FKM)
  • Curable without metal oxides
  • Exhibits good physical properties right out of the press
  • Suitable for compression and transfer molding, extrusion and calendering
  • Levels can be blended to achieve desired properties

3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomer FPO 3850 is a terpolymer of vinylidene fluoride, hexafluoropropylene and tetrafluoroethylene, plus a cure site monomer. This next-generation FKM has a fluorine content of 70.1% for excellent resistance against chemical fluids. These properties make it an excellent choice for seals like O-rings and gaskets.

A Next-Generation FKM
3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomer FPO 3850 is part of our next-generation peroxide cure fluoroelastomers. These next-generation FKMs offer many benefits over previous products, including high to excellent resistance against chemical fluids and good physical properties right out of the press. Plus, due to their ability to be cured without metal oxides, these FKMs have improved acid resistance for reduced volume swell.

Delivering Custom Solutions
3M offers over 50 grades of fluoroelastomers with varying monomer composition, Mooney viscosity and fluorine content. This broad offering, combined with our expertise in application and product development, translates into greater design flexibility.

For decades, we have been able to supply unique solutions to meet the increasing market challenges in developing and producing state-of-the-art fluoroelastomer products at the highest quality level. This goes hand-in-hand with our unparalleled commitment to research and customer support.
