Flametec® Kytec® PVDF is an ultra-pure fluoropolymer suited for harsh chemical, thermal, and ultraviolet environments. Flametec® Kytec® PVDF is tough engineering thermoplastic, with a balance of physical and chemical properties that qualify it for high-performance service in a wide range of applications.
It is mechanically both strong and tough, exhibiting high dielectric strength, and has a broad useful temperature range. As it is a fluoropolymer (A fluoropolymer is a fluorocarbon-based polymer with multiple carbon-fluorine bonds. It is characterized by a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases.), it is highly resistant to most environmental conditions, including corrosive chemicals and ultraviolet and gamma radiation, and is ideally suited for handling wet or dry chlorine, bromine, and other halogens.

What is PVDF?
Polyvinylidene fluoride or polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) is a highly non-reactive thermoplastic fluoropolymer produced by the polymerization of vinylidene difluoride. Compared to other fluoropolymers, like polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon), PVDF has a low density (1.78 g/cm3).
