PVDF, polyvinylidene fluoride, delivers high performance at a competitive cost. Its inherent purity positions it as ideal for a variety of applications which involve extreme conditions. PVDF is characterized by low permeability, as well as strong abrasion and chemical resistance.
PVDF, also known as Kynar®, is used in many industries including critical fluids, aerospace, oil/gas exploration, automotive, semiconductor, electrical, fiber optics and medical.
This fluoropolymer has a good performance to cost ratio. PVDF possesses a host of properties that make it useful in a variety of applications that need flexibility without sacrificing performance.
Tubing can be made with PVDF for critical fluid handling, heat transfer, pharmaceutical processing or environmental sampling applications.
Zeus can fashion PVDF into an array of profiles to suit the precise requirements of the application.
