Kytec®

Polyvinylidene Fluoride

Kytec® polyvinylidene fluoride, the homopolymer of 1, 1-difluoroethene, is a tough engineering thermoplastic that offers a unique balance of properties. Kytec® has the characteristic stability of fluoropolymers when exposed to harsh thermal, chemical, and ultraviolet environments.  Kytec® resists distortion and retains most of its strength to 280°F. Kytec® is chemically resistant to most acids, bases, and organic solvents and is ideally suited for handling wet or dry chlorine, bromine and other halogens.
