Fluoropolymers in Plant Engineering

Dyneon is offering a diversified fluoropolymer product portfolio enabling smart and custom tailored solutions to the plant engineering and chemical processing industry (CPI).

3M™ Dyneon™ fluoropolymers are high-performance materials responding to the needs of those industry segments where the unmatched combination of almost universal chemical resistance, superior corrosion protection, a broad service temperature range, permeation control and ultra-high purity is required.

You will find 3M™ Dyneon™ fluoropolymers in many different applications like in multipurpose plants for pharmaceutical active bulk products, in conjunction with the production of basic, intermediates & speciality chemicals, in petrochemical & biodiesel fuel production, in the crop science and the chlorine alkali industry (e.g. manufacturing of biocides & fertilisers).

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are widely used in other plant engineering applications, such as the manufacturing of paint / ink and toner, for food and beverage processing, for water treatment equipment and in the production of cleaning and detergent products, the making of flavours and fragrances and in the refinement of precious metals.

Furthermore 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers provide corrosion and contamination protection in fluid handling systems (e.g. lined PTFE pipes) and storage containers (lined columns, tanks, vessels and reactors), non-sticking and easy to clean surfaces, permeation prevention and dissipation of static charges.

In conclusion 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are contributing to safer plant operation, reduced downtime & maintenance cost, enhanced environmental protection and overall improved productivity.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers reduce Total Cost of Ownership by helping make resources more efficient.

Food & Beverage

The food & beverage industry is working according to the highest industrial hygiene standards.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers provide corrosion resistance against aggressive foods & beverages and aggressive caustic fluids which are used to clean the process equipment. The easy to clean surface of fluoropolymers is reducing the risk of bacteria growth and contamination.

Typical applications for 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers in the food & beverage industry:

Chemical & Petrochemical

Corrosion protection is the fundamental requirement in the chemical & petrochemical industry to operate plants at maximum yield and without catastrophic failures.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are best in class if it comes to overall chemical resistance and durability over a broad temperature range in continuous service. These product characteristics are reducing maintenance downtimes and production outages which finally optimise the Total Cost of Ownership. Dyneon™ fluoropolymers have the ability to reduce hydrocarbon emissions which in itself is enabling a reliable and environmentally friendly operation.

Typical chemical & petrochemical applications for 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers:


In semiconductor manufacturing, non-contaminating fluid handling systems are essentially required to convey aggressive process fluids to the individual wafer handling points.

Dyneon’s high-purity fluoropolymers feature low metal and ion extractables, extreme low impurities, and may improve wafer yields and lead to lower costs.

Typical applications for 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers in the semicon industry:


Pulp and paper manufacturing consists of a series of process steps which all carry the risk of fractures, leaks or corrosion of the machinery resulting in paper pollution, production loss and safety hazards.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are resistant against chemicals used in wood fibre treatment and bleaching. They are used to protect the machinery and lead to a significant saving of maintenance costs.

Typical applications for 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers in the paper/pulp industry:


3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are used to produce labware products for highly demanding and sensitive analytical applications.

They are providing features like high-purity, stability over a broad temperature range, universal chemical resistance and low surface energy which makes them easy to clean.

Typical applications for 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers in labware:


In pharmaceutical production plants the key challenge is to avoid product contamination. In addition, flexible production equipment is required that allows for quick product changeover and compatibility with different chemicals.

3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoropolymers are high-purity polymers free of additives & plasticisers which could migrate into the pharmaceuticals, and provide almost unlimited chemical resistance. Due to their low surface energy fluoropolymer products are easy to clean and pharmaceuticals will not adhere to them.
