Material properties of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
PVDF is an unreinforced, highly crystalline fluoropolymer that combines good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with excellent chemical resistance. Its properties make PVDF a versatile construction material, which is mainly used in the petrochemical, chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, paper, textile and nuclear industries. Its excellent welding properties and thermoplastic processability are of decisive importance.
PVDF is used where absolute safety in high-tech applications is a prerequisite. PVDF convinces with excellent chemical and thermal resistance (up to +150 °C continuously) and anti-adhesive surface. In the chemical industry, PVDF stands for the highest level of corrosion protection and in the semiconductor industry or in the pharmaceutical industry for the absolutely contamination-free transport of high-purity media.
