What is PVDF Coating?
PVDF, Polyvinyledene Fluoride or Kynar® is a highly non reactive and pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer. It is also called as HYLAR. PVDF is a special plastic material from the fluoropolymer family. PVDF coating is a special purpose coating that can be used in various applications that require highest purity, strength, resistance to solvents, acids, bases and for low smoke generation during a fire event.
PVDF coatings are easy to melt when compared with other fluoropolymers because of its low melting point of around 177˚C. Also it has a relatively low density and involves low cost when compared with other fluoropolymers.
PVDF can be injected, molded or welded and most commonly used in chemical, semi conductor, medical and defense industries as well as in lithium ion batteries.
