Fluoropolymers in Mechanical Engineering

A huge variety of engineering disciplines are covered under this headline. Amongst others, Automation, Kinetics, Conveyance, Measurement Technique, Machine Tool Building or Industrial Process Control systems are good examples.

But no matter which domain is selected you will find applications and requirements only fluoropolymers can serve best.

The broad 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymer product portfolio supports designers in implementing new innovative solutions and helps engineers to avoid downtime and maintenance cost.

Small Engine

Small engines are often used in hand-held power equipment such as chain saws, cutters, grinders, blowers and lawnmowers. They are expected to work reliably even in harsh environments and under the toughest conditions.

Power generation for these tools is done by either combustion engines or electric power drive. In the development of these high-performance, low-emission engines, 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers play a major role, allowing engineers to meet the latest requirements in creating state-of-the-art solutions.

See below for typical applications of 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers in this market segment:

Machinery & Hydraulics

Besides electrical transference of energy, mechanical or hydraulic transference of energy is still the most important aspect in the conveyance and control of energy in land, air and sea applications.

Over the last decades, the strive for maximised productivity at minimised maintenance, repair and overhaul breaks did create a challenging environment for many applications, leading to upgrades in polymeric seals. Fluoropolymers are the material of choice in many applications today while still offering technical capabilities and flexibility to meet future engineering requirements.
