PVDF polyvinylidene fluoride

PVDF

TECAFLON PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) is a low density fluoropolymer generally used in applications requiring higher purity, higher mechanical strength, higher dimensional stability & resistance to solvents, acids & hydrocarbons when compared to standard fluropolymer​s. Continuous service temperature -30°C​/+150°C​, near zero moisture absorption & food grade compliance.

  • Excellent mechanical properties when compared to standard fluoropolymers
  • Outstanding resistance to minerals, acids, hydrocarbons, alcohols & solvents
  • High abrasion, UV resistance & flame retardant

Features

​Food Grade

TECAFLON PVDF is FDA compliant​, non-toxic & can be used in repeated contact with food products. Food Certification documentation can be supplied  at time of order to align with your production batch. (charges apply).

​Additives & Modifiers

TECAFLON​ PVDF is available in the natural unfilled grade as well as TECAFLON PVDF ELS Black which is electrically conductive or TECAFLON PVDF CF8 which is carbon filled. Modified grades are imported on request & may be subject to minimum order quantities.

​Applications

​Often used as an insulation or protective barrier in the chemical industry. Chemical, food or pharmaceutical applications requiring higher mechanical strength & loading such as valves, fittings or pipelines. Commonly replaces PTFE where higher mechanical or abrasion resistance is required.
