In the electronic industry, PVDF is used in film and panels in condensers, for example, as well as in printed circuit boards, pipes, tanks, valves, pumps, and supports. It also features in the manufacture of microchips and PCBs, and in situations where deionised water and various chemicals are used.
PVDF is suitable for permanent use in a broad span of temperatures, from -30°C to +140°C.
Physiologically, PVDF is a non-toxic material that normally contains no additives. Tests have demonstrated that PVDF is resistance to bacterial growth on glass. This means that machine parts made of PVDF can be granted FDA approval. PVDF is typically used in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in the food, paper, electronics and galvanising sectors.
PVDF provides a range of positive mechanical attributes:
- Hard-wearing, with good friction attributes
- Excellent mechanical attributes
- High resistance to ageing
- Elevated thermal stability
- Suitable for welding
- Resistance to UV and gamma radiation
- High chemical resistance
- Particularly good dielectric attributes
- Excellent tensile strength and low moisture absorption
- PVDF features superior self-extinguishing attributes (Non-flammable)
PTFE features a variety of versatile attributes in a single solution
By mixing additives such as glass, carbon, graphite, bronze and stainless steel in with the virgin PTFE, we can tailor the attributes to match specific production environments and industries.
With PTFE and high-tech plastic as our area of expertise, we have the capacity to analyse complex issues and develop customized PTFE compound for your application.
