Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is an opaque, semi-crystalline, thermoplastic fluoroplastic that contains 57% fluorine and is chemically classified as a polyhalo-olefin.
Due to its high thermal and chemical resistance, PVDF is used to coat pipes, tubes or exterior components, as well as seals, membranes and packaging foil. Yet another field of application is medical technology, where PVDF is a suitable material for prostheses. Membrane technology uses PDVF widely, e.g. for high-quality bacteria filters, water filtration and reverse osmosis.« Back to Glossary Index
