PVDF - Polyvinylidene fluoride

Compare material
Other material names PVDF: SYMALIT PVDF 1000 natural
Material group: 
Special plastics

PVDF is a highly crystalline unreinforced fluoropolymer combining good mechanical, thermal and electrical properties with excellent chemical resistance. Its property profile makes PVDF a versatile engineering material, especially suitable for the manufacture of components for the petrochemical, chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, paper, textile and nuclear industries.
