PVDF FLEX (polyvinylidene fluoride - commonly known by the trade name KYNAR FLEX®) is a more flexible version of PVDF tubing suitable for use with flare fittings.* ALTAFLUOR 550 Tubing is resistant to many commonly used industrial fluids and gasses, including ozone, and does not support the growth of fungi. For this reason ALTAFLUOR 550 tubing is preferred for water disinfecting processes involving ozone such as aquarium, spa, pool and agriculture. Additionally, ALTAFLUOR 550 tubing and pipe products are ideal for applications with exposure to less aggressive chemicals and lower temperature exposure (over FEP or PFA) or those requiring low extractable levels. ALTAFLUO 550 PVDF tubing is available in standard and metric sizes and is suitable for use with conventional or flare fittings. ALTAFLUOR 550 PVDF pipe is available upon request.
