PVDF

medical silicone tubingPolyvinylidene fluoride, or PVDF, is a thermoplastic fluoropolymer with a wide range of uses. It’s easy to process and offers good welding characteristics. PVDF products can be costly compared to those of other thermoplastics, but in critical applications, especially those involving high temperatures or chemical resistance, the material’s benefits justify the expense.

Key physical properties of PVDF include:

  • Excellent chemical and acid resistance
  • High mechanical strength
  • Smooth surface finish
  • Excellent abrasion and creep resistance
  • A wide temperature range – from -80°F to as high as 300°F (-62°C to 149°C), depending on its finished form and usage
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Non-toxicity
  • Non-flammability (self extinguishing)
  • Outstanding UV resistance, making it a good material for outdoor applications
  • Ability to be sterilized

These properties make PVDF attractive for many industries, and it is often referred to by the trademarked name Kynar®. It’s used for chemical transfer pipe and tank linings, high purity fluid transfer applications such as those in the pharmaceutical and semiconductor fields, food and beverage processing, wire insulation, membrane material in the laboratory and biomedical industries, and, in powder form, as a paint additive. PVDF is also a popular choice for fishing line.
