Kynar® Polyvinylidene Fluoride


With over 20 years of experience as a material of construction, Kynar® PVDF resins have been used in critical fluid contact applications for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries.

Kynar® provides all the characteristics you expect from fluoropolymers including excellent chemical resistance, high purity, high thermal stability and non-stick surface. Unlike other fluoropolymers, Kynar® has high tensile strength and excellent resistance to permeation and radiation. A large processing window allows Kynar® to be injection-molded or extruded into clear, flexible films and tubing that are easily heat-sealed.

Key attributes of Kynar® :

  • Easily processed on conventional equipment
  • High tensile strength
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Gamma sterilizable according to ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11137 procedures
  • Autoclavable - temperature resistance up to 150 deg C (300 F)
  • Chemical Resistance of a fluoropolymer
  • Bio-Inert
  • Non-stick surface
  • Ultra low extractables and leachables (in the ppb range)
  • No additives or processing aids
  • No animal derivatives
