This highly crystalline unreinforced fluorinated thermoplastic (pvdf) is produced by the polymerisation of vinylidene fluoride. It combines good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with outstanding chemical and high radiation resistance.
The very low water absorption of 0.05% permits the unrestricted use of pvdf components in liquid environments. The material is mechanically strong and rigid enough to guarantee maintenance and leakage-free performance in many applications over a long period of time, even in harsh chemical environments.
The wide temperature range of pvdf (-40°C to +150°C) means that it is clearly superior to many other thermoplastics. It is also a lower-cost alternative to similar high-temperature plastics, such as ptfe and psu.
Being physiologically inert, pvdf has FDA approval, making it suitable for food contact and use in food processing equipment. It also exhibits excellent weather resistance, is dimensionally stable and has outstanding welding capabilities.
The property profile of this versatile high performance thermoplastic make pvdf especially suitable for the manufacture of components for the petrochemical, chemical, metallurgical, medical,textile, food and environmental industries.
