PVDF (Polyvinylidene Difluoride) is a fluorocarbon-based polymer. PVDF coatings are durable, chemical resistant, and inert, with excellent dielectric strength (1500V/mil) and a lower cure temperature (500°F). Available in a wide variety of colors, this coating enhances appearance as
well as performance and has a long history in reusable medical devices/instruments which must withstand the rigors of daily handling.
While PVDF has a lower cure temperature, it also has a lower operating temperature (300°F ) when compared to other fluoropolymers. Additionally, PVDF has a higher coefficient of friction.
Precision Coating provides the benefit of many years of practical experience working with the chemistry of coatings on challenging applications within a multitude of industries. Precision Coating’s application specialists work with customers to develop and formulate a custom material to suit the specific application.
Technicians can then apply the resulting material to customer components. Additionally, Precision Coating is ISO certified and qualified to provide traceability as required.
PVDF is used in a vast variety of applications including medical, aerospace, defense and industrial.
Key Characteristics of PVDF:
- Good chemical Resistance
