3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroplastic THV 500GZ

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroplastic THV 500GZ is a flexible, transparent fluoroplastic composed of tetrafluoroethylene and vinylidenefluoride. It provides a balance of low temperature processing, low flammability, thermal stability, and melt processability. It can be used to prepare extruded films, tubes, profiles, and wire coatings. It is useful for applications that require flexibility, low temperature processing and good chemical resistance.

THV 500GZ is characterized by the following features:

  • excellent flexibility
  • processing profile allows co-processing with olefinic plastics and hydrocarbon elastomers
  • excellent chemical and permeation-resistance
  • low flammability
  • bondable to other substrates (for multi-layer constructions)
  • high transparency

The 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroplastic THV 200Z, 400Z, 500Z and 600Z series process at relatively low temperatures compared to other fluoroplastics. Melt temperature at the die for extrusion ranges around 180 °C - 200 °C. Corrosion resistant equipment and an air exhausting system are recommended for safe processing.
