Product Details

Modified non-free-flowing suspension PTFE of the 2nd generation for compression moulding applications like shaped parts, skived films and sealing applications. Special Features Meets ASTM D4894 Type III, Grade 1 classification, Produced by suspension polymerisation, Improved particle coalescence, Dense polymer structure with reduced void content, Low permeability.

An Indispensable Problem Solver
Polytetrafluoroethylene – commonly known as PTFE – is an indispensable problem solver. It’s commonly used in a broad variety of challenging applications from harsh industrial environments to architectural elements. 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE is selected for its technical excellence and reliability. Our 3M™ Dyneon™ PTFE TFM™ 1700 is a modified non-free-flowing compression molding powder for applications such as shaped parts, molded cylinders, skived films greater than 20 µm, sheets and gaskets – and is suitable as a base resin for PTFE compound production. This versatile product has a very small particle size, good electrical and mechanical properties and low molding pressure.

Fluorine Makes the Difference
Quite simply, fluorine makes the difference. Fluoropolymers like Dyneon PTFE TFM™ 1700 are outstanding materials, created by the presence and dominance of fluorine. Fluorine imparts special properties to fluoropolymers that make the difference for the polymer and the application. Like many of our PTFE products, the presence of fluorine gives Dyneon PTFE TFM™ 1700 broad chemical resistance and an excellent operating temperature range. This PTFE meets ASTM D 4894 Type III, Grade 1.

Over 50 years of Innovation Research and Customer Support
For more than 50 years we have been able to supply unique solutions to meet the increasing market challenges in developing and producing designated state-of-the-art 3M™ Dyneon™ TFM™ Modified PTFE products at the highest quality level.

This goes hand-in-hand with our unparalleled commitment to research and customer support. Like all of our products, Dyneon PTFE TFM 1700 is backed by skilled researchers at several 3M tech service laboratories.
