Engineers, chemists, designers, and manufacturers have many material choices for chemical handling. One of the most chemically resistant family of materials are the fluoroplastics. Of this family of materials, Kynar® is the strongest and is one of the least expensive. Kynar® is usually the first fluoropolymer to think about when designing chemical handling systems under pressure.
Kynar® red polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) from NIBCO (Chemtrol) is ideal for use with hot corrosive liquids, chemical processing, industrial plating, and waste treatment systems. Kynar® red PVDF exhibits superior strength, working temperature and chemical resistance characteristics. The red pigment provides UV protection.
In addition to pipe, valves, and fittings, Kynar® PVDF is also available in chemical metering pump heads, sheet, rod, and tubing applications. For more information on Arkema Kynar® PVDF for chemical applications, visit www.arkema.com.
