PVDF

Polyvinylidenfluorid

PVDF is a high tech flour plastic, which has many of the same qualities as PEEK, but is cheaper.

PVDF is suitable for use in liquids - eg hot water, washing machines and chemicals.

PVDF has a high chemical resistance and is highly suitable for industry where there is a need for a material that can withstand acids, bases and organic solvents.

Trade names of raw materials and semi-finished products:

  • Symalit®
  • Kynar®
  • Solvay Solef®

Linatex supplies both semi-finished and finished products, as required. Documentation for quality and short delivery times makes Linatex a good partner.

What is PVDF used for

Application temperature normally from approx. 0 ° C up to 140 ° C - briefly up to 150 ° C
Density usually approx. 1.76-1.79 g/cmᶟ

Advantages:

  • High temperature resistance to approx. 150 ° C
  • Great chemical resistance
  • Not attacked by acids, bases and most organic solvents
  • UV-resistant
  • Not attacked by microorganisms
  • Good electrical and dielectric properties
  • Very low water absorption

Limitations:

Call creep resistance.

High density versus other plastic types.

Infested by molten alkali metals, in fluorine gas, acid difluoride and chlorotrifluoride.

Limited wear resistance.

Limited strength.

Applications:

Electrical applications, electrical machines, gaskets, washing machines, pipes, filters, coating in chemical equipment, electrical insulation materials, fine mechanical details, etc.
