Dyneon GmbH products are sold under the 3M™ Dyneon™ and 3M™ Dynamar™ brands. Because of the outstanding properties of these high-performance polymers, including temperature and chemical resistance, electric insulation, and flexibility, the safety and lifetime of plants, machines, and engines are increased.
To test the properties of the products as close as possible to their actual future application, the company is using a ZwickRoell materials testing machine with a special temperature chamber. Tensile, compression, and flexure tests can be performed in a temperature range of -70 to +400 °C. Because of the possible emission of gases from testing PTFE at temperatures higher than approximately +300 °C, a special safety enclosure is installed, which is connected to the company’s vacuum system.
