PTFE Compunds for extreme environments

Enhancing performance. Expanding horizons.

Standard and custom PTFE compounds for applications requiring low friction and durability in extreme environments.

3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE

Self-cleaning, weather-resistant stadium roofs. Self-lubricating bearings. Non-stick frying pans. 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE has become an indispensable material for an ever-widening array of applications – including automotive components, architectural membranes and, yes, cookware.

PTFE is a problem-solver. It helps architects push the boundaries of form and function. It helps keep vehicles on the road longer. And it helps protect equipment in extremely demanding operating conditions. Typical applications include seals, bearings, tubing, fibers, and coatings for woven fiberglass cloth. Dyneon PTFE can even be used as an additive to improve slip or wear characteristics in ink, plastics and lubricants.

We offer a wide portfolio of dispersions, fine powders, granular products, micropowders, and custom compounds – giving you design and process flexibility. In addition, our technical experts can help you optimize Dyneon PTFE materials for your application and manufacturing process.

  • 3M™ Dyneon™ TFM™ PTFE

    3M™ Dyneon™ TFM™ PTFE

    Engineered for improved performance and design flexibility, 3M™ Dyneon™ TFM™ PTFE features a unique chemistry with a denser polymer structure. Its improved properties over standard PTFE allow for new design possibilities, processing options and applications. The use of Dyneon TFM PTFE in seals, gaskets and components for valves, pumps and manufacturing equipment helps extend service life, improve reliability, reduce downtime – and ultimately increase productivity.

    • Substantially lower deformation under load
    • Lower permeability
    • Higher transparency
    • Exceptionally smooth surfaces
    • Excellent weldability
