Polyvinyl Idene Fluoride (KYNAR«)

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.

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
  • -30║C to +120║C 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.
