PVDF (polyvinylidenefluoride)

PVDF is an opaque, semi-crystalline, thermoplastic fluoroplastic.

PVDF is characterized by excellent chemical resistance, but without sharing the disadvantages of low mechanical values or difficult machinability of the other fluoroplastics.

Properties

The properties of PVDF are:
  • higher mechanical strength than PTFE
  • low density compared to other fluoroplastics
  • high chemical resistance
  • sterilisation and hydrolysis resistance
  • igh upper continuous service temperature in air (150°C)
  • no water absorption
  • BGA and FDA approval
  • very good UV- and weather resistance
  • flame retardant, self extinguishing
  • good dimensional stability
  • good hydrolysis resistance
  • radiation resistant
  • good electrical insulator
  • high abrasion resistance

Applications

PVDF can be used in the following areas:
  • Heat exchangers, pumps parts
  • Valves, pipes, fittings
  • Gears, cams, races
  • Bearing, housing
  • Mouldings for circuits
  • Insulators
  • Apparatuses of the chemical, petroleum, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, nuclear and papermaking industries

Availability

PVDF is available in the following dimensions:
  • Extruded sheets: 2000 x 1000 x 1 - 20 mm
  • Plates 2000 x 1000 x 10 - 80 mm
  • Plates 3000 x 610 / 500 x 10 - 100 mm
  • Round rods Ø 10 - 250 x 2000 / 3000 mm
  • thin-walled hollow bars (dimensions on request)
