Kynar® PVDF - POLYVINYLIDENE FLUORIDE
PVDF is a high crystalline fluoropolymer thermoplastic material with outstanding excellent chemical, physical, and mechanical properties. It has excellent chemical and corrosion resistance, is strong, tough, and abrasion resistant, and retains most of its strength to 280ºF (150°C). It is chemically resistant to most inorganic acids and bases, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, organic acids, alcohols and halogens.
Kynar® 740 PVDF piping can be made from grades that meet FDA, USP Class 6, ASTM E84 (25/50 rating) and NSF 51 & 61. Kynar® pipe can also be foamed to form light weight structures lighter than water.
Kynar 740 PVDF piping is widely used by the construction, general chemical, semiconductor, pulp & paper, nuclear, mining, metal preparation, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, wastewater, and food and beverage industries. Some common chemicals handled by PVDF are: acetic acid, acid mixtures, biodiesel, bromine, bromobenzene, wet or dry chlorine, chlorinated salts, chlorobenzene, chromic acid, deionized water, hydrobromic acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, hot sugars, iodine, metallic chlorides, methane sulfonic acid, methyl alcohol, methyl chloroform, phosphoric acid, nitric acid, salicylic acid, salt water, sodium hypochlorite and sulfuric acid.
