Polyvinyl Idene Fluoride (SUSTA®PVDF, KYNAR®)
SUSTA®-PVDF is a fluoroplastic material and is characterised in particular by its extraordinary chemical resistance and as such may be used over a wide temperature range.
Compared to other fluoropolymers PVDF offers many advantages in various applications; especially its easy processability, high mechanical strength and low specific gravity.
From a chemistry point of view, PVDF lies between HD-PE and PTFE (P.T.F.E.) its relationship to HD-PE is illustrated by its machineability and to PTFE by its high chemical resistance at elevated temperatures.
SUSTA®-PVDF is available in rod, sheet, pipe and also specialty polyester fabric and glass backed sheet & rolls for tank construction.
PVDF can be characterised by the following properties:
- Easy to fabricate, weld and machine
- FDA approved
- -30ºC to +120ºC working temperature range
- Good mechanical strength
- Flame retardant
- UV resistant
- Gas impermeable
- Naturally translucent colour
Fields of application: tanks, tank lining, flanges, pump parts, impellers.
Only on special request. Minimum Order Quantities.
