3M™ Dyneon™ Flouroelastomer FE 5830Z has a composition of terpolymer of vinylidene fluoride, hexafluoro propylene, and tetrafluoroethylene. Product characteristics include:
High fluorine extrusion grade
Process targets: Extrusion only. Not recommended for molded goods applications
Proprietary incorporated cure technology
Produces smooth extrudates without the use of processing aids
Can be formulated to meet -40°C mandrel bend fuel hose specifications
Can be formulated to yield good permeation resistance to automotive fuels
Dyneon FE 5830Z fluoroelastomer can be compounded using standard water cooled internal mixers or two-roll mills with standard fillers and ingredients utilized in typical fluoroelastomer formulations. The ingredients should be dry-blended before adding to the masticated gum. For best results, FE 5830Z fluoroelastomer should be banded on the mill several minutes prior to adding the dryblended ingredients. Once mixed, the compounded stocks display excellent processing characteristics and storage stability.
