Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF)

A member of the fluorohydrocarbon resin family. Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is thermally stable at high temperatures. It is stronger and more abrasion resistant than other fluorocarbons and is easier to process on conventional thermoplastic equipment. PVDF is commonly used in electrical insulation, pipes and other chemical process equipment, and coatings for industrial and commercial buildings.
