PVDF / Kynar® Compression Molding

 

PVDF / Kynar® Compression Molding


PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) is a fluorinated semi-crystalline thermoplastic that is obtained by polymerizing vinylidene fluoride.


When exposed to harsh chemicals, high temperatures and UV radiation, PVDF exhibits the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers.  PVDF exhibits higher dimensional stability, pressure resistance and tensile strength than PTFE, but lesser friction and insulation properties.



PVDF / Kynar® Properties

  1. Excellent chemical resistance at ambient and elevated temperatures, inert in some of the most stringent environments such as concentrate acids and halogens

  2. Excellent weatherability

  3. Insensitive to UV rays

  4. Excellent radiation resistance

  5. Good thermomechanical properties

  6. High tensile strength

  7. High mechanical strength

  8. Low water absorption

  9. Excellent barrier properties

  10. Outstanding toughness in the most extreme exposure conditions

  11. Abrasion-resistant

  12. Flame-resistant

  13. Self-extinguishing

  14. High purity

  15. FDA compliant

  16. Easy to machine
