PVDF Overview

Elder Engineering supplies natural unreinforced PVDF in semi finished product.

PVDF is a highly crystalline unreinforced fluoropolymer combining good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with excellent chemical resistance. Its property profile makes PVDF a versatile engineering material, especially suitable for the manufacture of components for the petrochemical, chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, paper, textile and nuclear industries.

The main characteristics of PVDF

  • *High max. allowable service temperature in air (150°C continuously)
    * Good mechanical strength, stiffness and creep resistance (better than other      Fluoropolymers)
    * Excellent chemical and hydrolysis resistance
    * High toughness, also at low temperatures
    * Good sliding properties and wear resistance
    * Good dimensional stability
    * Physiologically inert (suitable for food contact)
    * Good electrical insulating properties
    * Outstanding UV and weather resistance
    * Inherent low flammability
    * Fairly good resistance against high energy radiation
    (much better than other Fluoropolymers)

Also referred to as Kynar and Symalit.
