We invented 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE and 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroplastic dispersion grades that support the sustainable production of new technologies.
The environmental, economic, and social dimensions of sustainability have inspired us to replace the use of PFOA as an emulsifier in our production. We have changed over to an emulsifier exhibiting a significantly improved Environmental, Health, and Safety profile, while maintaining the properties of well-established fluoropolymer products to their full extent. We were successful in reaching the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s voluntary PFOA Stewardship Program’s goals seven years ahead of time and have developed a containment technology allowing us to remove and recover the new emulsifier from process off-gas and waste water to insert it back into the manufacturing process.
Think surfaces that are easy-to-clean or help in the preparation of reduced-fat foods.
We have lead the way to develop products for formulating systems of coating metal and ceramic surfaces in food-contact applications.
