TECAFLON® PVDF

TECAFLON® PVDF material (chemically known as polyvinylidene fluoride) is manufactured by Ensinger in standard stock shapes for machining  in sheet and rods. Polyvinylidene fluoride is an opaque, semi crystalline, thermoplastic fluoropolymer. PVDF is characterised by excellent chemical resistance without having the disadvantages of low mechanical values and/or processing difficulties which can be experienced with other fluoroplastics. The material PVDF shows a melting point of 171°C.

PVDF properties include the following:

  • Low density compared to other fluoropolymers
  • Dood mechanical strength compared to other fluoropolymers
  • High permanent operating temperature (140°C)
  • Practically no moisture absorption
  • Good dimensional stability
  • High chemical resistance
  • Good resistance to hydrolysis
  • UV resistance
  • Radiation resistance
  • Good electrical insulation
  • High abrasion resistance

PVDF polymer is manufactured by Ensinger under the tradename TECAFLON. The Ensinger TECAFLON PVDF family contains the following modifications:

  • TECAFLON PVDF natural – unfilled PVDF
  • TECAFLON PVDF ELS black – electrically conductive PVDF
  • TECAFLON PVDF CF8 – carbon fibre reinforced PVDF

Ensinger is a supplier of PVDF shapes such as:

  • PVDF rod
