Chemtrol®—PVDF Kynar® for Tough Chemical Applications
February 1, 2012 – The Woodlands, TX – NIBCO, Inc. manufactures red and natural Chemtrol® PVDF Kynar® piping components. It is a tough, abrasion resistant fluorocarbon material that has a maximum service temperature of 280°F. The basic PVDF resin is essentially transparent to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and is not degraded by sunlight. However, the fluid medium in a PVDF piping system could be exposed to UV radiation. To provide protection against UV degradation to the fluid medium, FDA approved red pigmentation is added to all piping components for industrial applications. Conversely, in certain industries, such as electronics, pharmaceutical, hospitals, schools, universities, food and beverages, PVDF is used because of its purity and elevated temperature sanitation capability. For these applications, another line of piping products made from natural (unpigmented) Kynar® is available.
