PVDF

PVDF Rods, Plates & Tubular Bars

Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is a highly non-reactive and pure thermoplastic, and partially fluorinated. PVDF is a specialty plastic material in the fluoropolymer family. It is used generally in applications requiring the highest purity, strength, and resistance to solvents, acids, bases and heat and low smoke generation during a fire event. Compared to other fluoropolymers, PVDF has an easier melt process because of its relatively low melting point of around 338 °F. It is commonly used in the chemical, semiconductor, medical and defense industries, as well as in lithium ion batteries. Applications in chemical processing rely on PVDF to withstand heat and pressure, aggressive chemicals, mechanical stress, and abrasive particles.

Key Features

  • Chemically inert to most acids, aliphatic and aromatic organic compounds,
    chlorinated solvents, and alcohols
  • Very high purity
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Unaffected by ultraviolet radiation
  • Excellent intrinsic fire resistance
  • Physiological harmless and approved for contact with food products
  • Good capability for machining and easily joined by welding

Typical Applications

  • Chemical Processing
  • Transport and storage systems
  • Oil and Gas
  • Aerospace
  • Fuel cells
  • Semiconductor/Microelectronics
  • Sensors
  • Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals
