Raw material information
The standard PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride) is a homopolymer of VF2 (Vinylidene difluoride).
Besides those homopolymers, copolymers with HFP (Hexafluoropropylene) such as CTFE (Chlorotrifluoroethylene) and copolymer blends also exist and are usually softer than the homopolymers.
- Temperature of continuous use ranges from – 50 °C (-58 °F) to + 150 °C (+302 °F)
- Good chemical stability
- Best mechanical properties of all fluoroplastics
- Distinguished stability to high-energy rays
- Very smooth and easy to clean anti-adhesive surfaces
- High pressure resistance at room temperatute
- Nonflammable (UL 94: V0 classification)
- Low permeability
- Sterilizable and autoclavable
- Compliant with FDA and UPS Class VI
APT produces PVDF tubes from a minimum inner diameter of 0,3 mm (0.010”) to a maximum outer diameter of 100 mm (4.000”) and PVDF rods to a maximum diameter of 4,00 mm (0.160”) In addition to a large spectrum of standard products, on which we keep stock , we almost produce every possible required dimensions. On request, products can also be colored according to RAL-color system.
Depending on customer’s request, PVDF tubes can be packaged in coils, wrapped on spools or supplied in straight length up to 6 m (18ft.).
On basis of these excellent characteristics, PVDF tubes can be used for several applications in the industrial sector:
- Chemical plant construction
- Equipment engineering
- Laboratory techniques and process engineering
- Oil and Gas industry
- Automotive, aerial and spatial engineering
- Medical engineering
- Semiconductor industry
- Electrical engineering
- Medical product
