PVDF KynarPascal Cottereau
Kynar® PVDF is a range of materials manufactured by the Arkema Group. Kynar® is a well-known and recognized trademark, whose main component is polyvinylidene fluoride or PVDF. Thus, Kynar® PVDF inherits all the exceptional properties of this material. Parts machined from Kynar® PVDF are in great demand in many industrial sectors, especially for electric vehicle batteries.
Kynar® PVDF and its many interesting properties
The Arkema Group is one of the leaders in the PVDF market with its Kynar® range, which enables the manufacture of various parts based on polyvinylidene fluoride. SPN has chosen to use this range of material for the machining of parts, because the properties of Kynar® PVDF allow to meet many needs of the industrial sectors, in particular by its chemical inertia. Indeed, the stability and chemical resistance of Kynar® PVDF are among the best performing materials. It is a material that is perfectly resistant to almost all chemical agents, including acids, alcohols, chlorinated solvents, mineral bases and other aromatic hydrocarbons or aliphatic compounds. However, Kynar® PVDF is not recommended for parts that will be in direct contact with highly basic solutions such as ketones and esters.
Kynar® PVDF retains all of these properties well even at elevated temperatures: all properties, especially chemical properties, remain stable. Parts made with Kynar® PVDF perform well between -20°C and 130°C. Properties only start to degrade above 175°C. Also in terms of strength and performance, Kynar® PVDF is not sensitive to sunlight, UV and radiation. It also has gas-tight and non-stick properties. Finally, Kynar® PVDF parts have good resistance to aging: they are resistant to rubbing and abrasion.
Kynar® PVDF for parts in countless applications
Like Solef® and Dyneon® , Kynar® PVDF is in great demand in industries such as chemical, medical, pharmaceutical, food, aerospace and other sectors that use parts machined from Kynar® PVDF. But other sectors also benefit from the properties of Kynar® PVDF. The electronics industry, for example, uses this material to make insulators or to manufacture piezoelectric parts.
