Fluoropolymers in
O-Rings

Elastomer torus-shaped loops. Applied to sealing solutions that go on working in the hottest and harshest environments.

O-rings for General Industry Applications

In the chemical and petrochemical industry, as well as off shore productions, regular 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluorelastomer O-rings are used as standard sealing solutions in harsh and hot environments to optimize cost and ensure long-life cycle performance. The broad range of 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomers enables processors to meet specific industrial requirements. And if ultimate sealing performance, reliability and safety is required, 3M™ Dyneon™ Perfluoroelastomer compounds are ready to make the grade.
