Chemical resistance PVDF

PVDF is very suitable for applications that require an excellent chemical resistance,a high degree of purity and superior mechanical properties. PVDF is often used as a coating or protection cover in chemical industry applications.

Note: The chemical resistance of each polymer is mainly determined by the chemical structure of the material and the strength of the weakest link in this specific structure.

Chart codes

R - Resistant 
LR - Limited Resistance 
NR - Not Recommended
ND - No Data

Actual properties may change due to processing method, compound type, extruded dimensions and other variables. It is the user's responsibility to evaluate and fully test the suitability of the product for their specific application.
