PVDF – Polvinylidenfluorid – polyvinylidene fluoride

Application: PVDF is used heavily within the chemical industry and elsewhere, that use corrosive liquids and high temperatures. It is used for the manufacture of valves, seals, pumpedele, thought, fittings and pipes.

Fire: PVDF is self-extinguishing. Flammable class UL94 V0. By brand split up toxic fluorine compounds.

Bending. Outstanding both bending worth, and the thin sheets of hot wire.

Features electric: ≥ 1×1012 Oh·m. Strong piezoelectrisk effect.

Colors: PVDF in an undyed state milky white / faint yellowish.

Moisture absorption: 50%RF %< 0,05

Physiological properties: Can be used for food contact. Qualify for FDA approval. Flour plastic not attacked by microorganisms.

History: 1961 – Production of PVDF starts. I 1969 was the strong piezoelectriske effect in the PVDF discovered.

Trade names: Kynar

Identification fire test: Self-extinguishing, When heated above 350 ° released toxic fumes.

Category: PVDF st and delkrystallinsk materiale, and belongs to the group of fluorine patch.

Chemical resistance: PVDFer known for its good chemical properties. PVDF is resistant to most acids and weak bases, as well as being useful in hot water and steam. PVDF is not resistant to alkali, flourgasser, acetone, acetate, caustic soda and hot dilute sulfuric acid.

Chemical structure: PVDF is highly crystalline kædepolymeriserede thermoplastic with high density in the material. Density 1,78 g/cm3

Delivery: sheets, rods and tubes, fittings and valves.

Bonding: difficult.

mechanical PropertiesPVDF is known for its good mechanical features- and trykstyrke. It is a very pure material with relatively good strength- and friction properties.
